My sister Rachel & I will be in Pune for the month of December. We’ll be attending the 10-day Intensive with Geeta Iyengar in celebration of her 70th birthday. Then we are spending the rest of the month at the Iyengar Yoga Insitute.

Guruji B.K.S Iyengar says:
In order to transform people from the physical level to the mental and spiritual level, the healing aspect of yoga has the major role. For many, yoga is a science and a philosophy, but it is only those who practice who know it is an art. Healing is an art and one has to go deep into the art to understand the changes taking place while you are taking a breath, while your are working, while your are moving, while you are sitting. One has to practice with accuracy, methodically, mathematically calculating how one has to sit, how to do the pose, how to stretch the leg. Then the reactions which take place in one’s own body, have to be experimented with friends or students to see if the feedback is the same as we got in our own body. If the feedback is identical then we can take it for granted that this is a healing process, which we can use. So that is why a yoga teacher has a tremendous responsibility.
