Frances with Geeta Iyengar 2011

Frances with Geeta Iyengar 2011

On this chilly morning, it is hard to believe that this time next week I will be in class at the Iyengar Institute in Pune, India. Four years on from my last visit the main change will of course be that our Guruji  BKS Iyengar is no longer alive. However I have no doubt that his daughter Geeta (pictured above) will have stepped into his place with great authority.

I feel very lucky to be taking classes with her and attending the 8 day Intensive on Pranayama that she will teach mid December. I will also be assisting her and the other Indian teachers in the medical classes. Nowhere else does one get the chance to observe and learn how to help with so many medical conditions. I will do my best to bring back and share what I have learnt throughout the month, both at my classes and in the New Year Workshop on Sunday 10th January.
