Workshops and Yoga Days

Regular workshops and yoga days are held around the County. These are taught either by a guest or local teacher.

In 2008 celebrations of Guruji′s 90th year in Essex included: pranayama workshops with Susan Long, a yoga day with Lois Shilton, a yoga day with Susan Long, a weekend of yoga with Jayne Orton, a children′s course in the summer term, and demonstrations and a stand at the Body, Mind and Soul Exhibition. Finally on Guruji′s birthday we met and practiced the first ninety asanas in Light on Yoga.


IYCE News focuses on what is happening in Essex plus some general news about Iyengar yoga. It is issued two or three times a year.

The current issue reports on Karen de Villiers visit to Pune. She attended classes at the Ramamani Iyengar Memorial Yoga Institute and Guruji′s 90th birthday celebrations in Pune. On 14 December Karen went to the Institute and gave Guruji the beautiful birthday card which Jenny Reynish designed and painted and which many of the Essex students signed.


Currently there are eight Introductory Level teachers, six Junior Intermediate level teachers and one Senior Intermediate level teacher. Five of these teachers have attended classes at the Ramamani Iyengar Memorial Yoga Institute in Pune, India with Geetaji and Prashantji.

All IYCE local and guest teachers are registered to use the Iyengar Certification Mark which is a recognised trade mark.

Teacher Training

An Introductory Teacher Training course is taught by our trainer Susan Long. From time to time Intermediate Junior Training sessions are also offered.
