2017 Pune Practice for Iyengar yoga teachers and trainees; Fridays 1:00 – 4:00pm

Free of charge.

For more information contact Linda: or Louie:

The Yoga Space will be open for three-hour practice sessions on Friday afternoons throughout the year. Similar to the daily practice at RIMYI in India, participants will be welcome to use the studio equipment to delve into their own practice in the company of other teachers. While the main focus is to deepen ones independent practice, being with other teachers provides the opportunity to ask questions and give each other help when needed. Twenty-one Friday afternoons will be designated for practice sessions annually. Participating in the Pune Practice series is a commitment to one's own practice. Louie and/or Linda will be in attendance.
