We will be celebrating the centenary of BKS Iyengar’s birth with two special events, a led practice and a evening of fantastic entertainment by our students.
Guruji Centenary 100 Asana Practice
To mark what would have been BKS IYengar’s 100th birhday there will be a 100 Asana Practice led by Marco Cannavo. The practice will be interspersed with readings and poems by or about Guruji. It will not be a taught class and is suitable for members with at least one year’s Iyengar yoga practice.
