In 2007, Drew Perry, of Winnipeg MB, was studying at the Iyengar institute in Pune. …
Donna Fornelli of Gatineau QC shares her thoughts on the recent online intensive with Abhijata Iyengar.
Abhijata’s teaching is so inspiring and joyful as she authentically communicates the philosophy and work of Guruji, Geetaji and Prashantji.
I am incredibly grateful for all her classes. Abhiji’s masterful instruction has lifted me out of the places in my practice where I have been stuck. Significantly, Day Two on hips has given me hope!
This was not Donna’s first encounter with Abhijata. In 2008, Donna was part of the protocol committee that arranged and managed Geeta Iyengar’s visit to British Columbia for the Canadian Iyengar yoga conference. Abhijata accompanied her aunt on this visit. Of meeting Abhijata, Donna notes:
We saw first hand in Abi, the third generation of the Iyengar family, the skill and devotion that will guide us and many more in our yoga journey into the future.
Donna described her experience of the conference and her interactions with Geetaji and Abhijata in two articles which are reproduced below, with her kind permission.
