What makes Iyengar Yoga so wonderful?
Join Ruchi Murlidhar and Inbal Meron for a community chit chat
Monday, January 30th from 7:30 – 8:30 pm pst on zoom
People who practice Iyengar Yoga love it so much? But why? What are the hallmarks of Iyengar Yoga and why would anyone want to practice it?
YOU ARE INVITED TO THE CHIT-CHAT
Join us to learn more about Iyengar Yoga? Got a question for the teachers? Just want to hang out? Our monthly community chit-chats are a time to get together less formally.
The yoga tradition offers us so much wisdom. Even within Iyengar Yoga there is a universe of interesting topics to discuss. Over a brief-one hour session we will take a deeper dive into one specific topic that we love.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Our monthly community chit-chats are a time to get together less formally. For many years, we would gather at the Iyengar Institute in Pune to chit-chat with Geeta Iyengar, Sunita Iyengar and now Abhijata and other RIMYI teachers. We treasure these times together and look forward to bringing this tradition to Adeline Yoga. Its a fun time to engage in stimulating conversation around important topics that relate to Vedic tradition and Iyengar Yoga practice specifically.
The purpose of our monthly gathers are to:
- Excite and inspire aspiring and current yoga students everywhere
- Give students access to our outstanding faculty, allowing them to get to know their teachers in new ways
- Expose students to facets of Iyengar Yoga that they might know know about
- Give teachers an opportunity to talk about topics they love
Throughout 2023, we will host a monthly chit-chat on the last Monday of the month, 7:30 pm pst on zoom. The format will vary between a presentation, Q&A and group discussion. Breakout groups and other creative uses of zoom may happen!
- February – The Breath Part 1: How is it that we actually breathe?
- March – The Breath Part 2: What is the connection between breath and prana? What is pranayama and how does it work
- April – How the Yoga Sutras can help you
