Beloved Guruji

We lost our teacher, our light on our path and the person who made yoga accessible to the world. His teachings will continue through us and our students. Sleep well Guruji.

We are having our first get together after our initial launch, at 15:00 on April 28th, in Kuzguncuk.

As we decided at our initial meeting, the Istanbul Iyengar Institute will explore topics beyond physical asana practice, and this afternoon will be a talk and discussion about yamas, niyamas, and the wider framework of the eight limbs of yoga.

You can bring food, we’ll have a beautiful afternoon… See you there!

Please contact Sine if you wish to attend.
