ABOUT MY TEACHING

I teach my classes based on the schedule that is used at the Iyengar Institute in Pune which means that the first week in the month will be standing poses, the second week forward bends, the third week back extensions, and the last week will be restorative and pranayama. I am likely to emphasize some aspect of each of the categories of asanas for that particular week. In all classes modifications will be given when necessary.

I am interested in incorporating all three aspects of yoga – body, mind and breath – into my teaching.

Please note that yoga is not a work out but a work in.
