An interactive session on the Yoga Sutras: Coming into Balance with Leslie Hogya and Sarah Bertucci

March 23 @ 10:00 am - 11:15 am PDT


Join Leslie and Sarah for an interactive discussion on the yoga sutras with the theme:  Coming into Balance

Leslie has been teaching in Victoria since the early 70s and has been active in the local centre since then. She has studied in Pune at the RIMYI many times since her first trip in 1985. Over the years, she has been able to study in person and now via the virtual world with the Iyengar family and other senior teachers around the world. Leslie is an advisor to the Iyengar Yoga Centre Board. Leslie also serves as an assessor, and  is on other committees for the national Iyengar association (IYAC/AYCI). She continues to study the philosophy of yoga and uses her ability to bring these teachings down to earth for seminars on the relevance of these teachings in our everyday lives.  Certification: Level 3

Sarah began her yoga studies in the early 1980s at Yoga Centre Toronto. During her first class, a transcendent experience in Savasana compelled her to continue her studies. In 2000, Sarah travelled to India to study with the Iyengar family at RIMYI and has returned many times since to continue her studies, most recently in December 2019.  Sarah holds a Level 3 certification.  She has been mentoring student teachers since 2010 and serves as an assessor with IYAC/AYCI. She is an active member, having served on the PD committee and more recently hosting IYAC/AYCI events, including community practices. Sarah’s teaching style is passionate and energetic, challenging her students to embark on their own yogic journey.  She encourages her students to find balance by exploring both their strengths and weaknesses.  She reminds them of Iyengar’s words, “balance in the body is the foundation for balance in life.”
