The Four Pillars of Practice


Recently, the the B.K.S. Iyengar Yoga Association of Vancouver hosted a discussion of yoga philosophy centred on the four pillars of practice – Sraddha (faith), Virya (courage), Smriti (memory) and Samadhi. The senior practitioners leading the discussion were Leslie Hogya (Victoria), Judi Mirus (Edmonton), Linda Shevloff (Vancouver) and Sarah Bertucci (Toronto).  The moderator, Teri Damiani, noted that these four senior teachers together embodied 164 years of Iyengar yoga study.

A recording of the discussion is available on the  Vancouver association’s YouTube channel at the following link:
