IYCE News Summer 2022


Our dear friend and colleague Jan Wallace (10.9.1931-9.3.2022) died this Spring. She was a founder member of IYCE and always supported our work. She attended classes with Susan Long for over thirty years and for a short while classes with Lois Shilton.

IYCE sends condolences to all of Jan's family and friends.

Workshop with Michelle and Denise

Michelle and Denise taught a fabulous workshop on 14 May 2022. The focus of the class was Utthita Parsvakonasana - did anyone count how many times we did this asana? With so many interesting asanas in between it was fresh each time and lovely on the hips. Thank you Michelle and Denise.
