Karen Long is a Junior Intermediate (level 3) teacher who has a popular following in North London. This is a rare opportunity to be taught by her, as she has recently moved to Marseille, France, where she is currently teaching.
She has studied yoga since the 1980s. She was a long-term student of Silvia Prescott who, she says, “always emphasised that we should find a way to be in the poses with less effort and this is something that I know that my regular students hear from me a lot!”
Karen has also studied with Advanced teacher Christian Pisano from Nice, France, since his first trips to London, and her practice is greatly influenced by him; this led her to embark on teaching.
Through her experience of major surgery five years ago, she learned a great deal from another eminent long-term teacher, Mira Mehta, and says, “Yoga has been, and continues to be, a great tool in my life and I hope to encourage others to practise and to benefit from it.”
Karen’s teaching experience is varied. As well as having taught popular beginners’, general and intermediate classes, she has taught kids at a school in Hackney and also many students who retired some time ago. She believes, “That’s the beauty of Iyengar yoga - there is something for everyone."

We look forward to welcoming you to NELIYI's Annual General Meeting 2016 on Sunday 12 June at the Iyengar Yoga Studio, Leicester Rd, London N2 9EA. The meeting will start at 5.15pm, following the yoga workshop (with Karen Long) at the same place and date. You don't have to tell us in advance if you will attend, just turn up. We don't expect the meeting to go on after 6pm, but it is in an important occasion in our yearly calendar.
All current members of NELIYI are welcome to attend and participate in our AGM (non-members may attend, but not vote). It's normally a fairly short meeting, in which we deal with standard organisational stuff, but it's also a good opportunity to meet the NELIYI Committtee and other members and find out about how we work and our hopes and plans for the future.
Location: The Harringay Club, 50 Tottenham Lane, London, N8 7EE
PLEASE NOTE that the new published date for this event is a provisional 'holding date' and that an actual new date will be announced as soon as it has been agreed. We are expecting it to be in the autumn. Many thanks for your understanding.
This general level workshop is a rare opportunity to work with one of London's longest established teachers.
Geraldine is a Junior Intermediate Level 3 teacher with over 25 years experience of teaching Iyengar yoga.
Geraldine's first yoga class was 35 years ago with a wonderful Iyengar teacher called Jeffrey Judelson. He was very welcoming, and she immediately felt it suited her! It has, over the years, helped her cope with all the "slings and arrows" that life presents. She has subsequently studied and trained with Silvia Prescott and Penny Chaplin.
Geraldine teaches both general and Intermediate classes for small private groups, as well as at her local health club. When asked three words to describe her teaching style, she states that it is 'friendly, observant and direct!'
We advise you to book this workshop well in advance to guarantee a place. It is open to anyone with at least two years experience of Iyengar yoga.
