Sadhana with Abhijata Iyengar… a community dialogue

11-16 May 2021- across Canada and around the world – virtual Sadhana with Abhijata Iyengar!










Spending six days together with Abhijata (and, occasionally, her children… the next generation of Iyengar yoga practitioners!) enriched our Canadian – and global – community.  Practising together in a way that would not have been as possible in the ‘before times’ is an expression of community.  We’ve seen already in the Journal reflections from several people on their experience in this Sadhana.  Below, we include more thoughts, reflections, and gratitude… more dialogue… within our community and with Abhijata.



Dear Abhijata,
What a wonderful six days!  We hope the children have recovered fully from their vaccination reactions and that you are able to have a few days of rest.



It was a gift to us all to be together in this manner.



It was truly a wonderful experience. Everything was well organized and it felt like the next best thing to being there in person. Many thanks …….. to Abhijata and her generous and luminous teaching!



I have been imagining the layers of support  that have been going on to host such a successful virtual conference with Abhijata.  It’s taken real team collaboration to hold our national community through an enriching six days of teaching and learning. I’m immensely grateful for all the work and selfless service from so many people which has taken place behind the scenes to allow this to happen.

Abhi’s versatility, responsiveness, fresh perspective and energy in conveying Guruji’s teachings has been a real gift to all who participated. Guruji’s teachings are alive and well in Abhi’s open-hearted approach.

And, continuing the dialogue , Abhijata offered these words…

Dear all,

Thank you so much for your love and affection. Your love for Guruji’s teachings is so deep that you all liked your time with me :).  It was my pleasure  to share what I have learnt with you all.


I enjoyed it very much. My kids are back to normal. Thank you.


Further, in response to learning of the contributions made by IYAC/ACYI and its members of funds to support India’s efforts in dealing with a resurgence of Covid-19, Abhijata sent the following message…

Hello,  I thank the Canadian community for your kind help to my countrymen in these difficult times. My sincere gratitude.
