December/January 2015

Happy Holidays Hi Yoga Students!
I am happy to announce the re-naming of the studio. Our official name is: The Iyengar Yoga Center of Fort Collins.

This means that all teachers, including the substitute teachers, are in training for Iyengar Certification or have already passed Certification.
The Iyengar method of certification is highly strenuous, precise, and takes a minimum of 2-3 years of serious commitment.
I am proud that we have three students in our midst who have done just that.
Paige Noon, Nicole Murphy, and Betty Ford.
All three passed with strong marks in three categories: a written test, a demonstrated practice, and a practical  teaching of six poses in fifty minutes. I am happy they are through this door and wish them well in their teaching.
I will be in India studying with Geeta Iyengar until Dec 13. See the schedule below with class instructors filling in for me.
Geeta Iyengar is teaching a special intensive on asana and pranayama.
I am excited to offer a new class beginning January 10th reflecting what I learn from Geeta in India. This class is open to all levels and is based on what I learned in India with Asanas and Pranayama. This class will focus on asanas that lead to better breathing and mental equilibrium.
As the Holidays approach, remember to take care of your lives. Each day starts anew for everyone.
Keep your self rested in body and mind, and approach your day with friendliness and vigor for yourself and for your responsibilities.
