Workshop with Mary Obendorfer and Eddy Marks

We are extremely pleased to be able to offer a workshop with US teachers Mary Obendorfer and Eddy Marks. This is a great chance to attend a workshop with two teachers who have a  world wide reputation as transformational Iyengar teachers. 

Mary and Eddy are certified at the Advanced level with a wealth of experience and the ability to convey BKS Iyengar’s  illuminated teachings with clarity and insight.  

 

They co-direct the BKS Iyengar Yoga Center of San Diego which was established in 1979 and teach throughout the US and worldwide to share what they were privileged to learnt directly from the Iyengar family. 

 

For decades they studied with the Iyengars in India, living there for a year in 2003 and 7 months in 2009. They say that Guruji's original and transformative approach to yoga inspires them to guide students with clarity and precision working from the skin to the soul.  

 This Asana and Pranayama workshop is for all yoga students who are keen to deepen their Asana and Pranayama practice and understanding.

They will be running two sessions at IYISL. 

Friday 31 Aug 2018 -  half day workshop aimed at general level and confident beginner students on Iyengar Vinyasana- motion based practices to bring freedom of body and quickness of mind.

Sunday 2 Sep 2018  -a one day workshop aimed at general and intermediate level students. Inspired by a session taught by Geeta and Abhijata Iyengar last December.
