• Professional Development Day for teachers only

    Sunday, 22nd September 2019 at 10am - 4pm
    Location: Eden Primary School, 79 Creighton Avenue, London N10 1NR

    Please note, this important yoga study day is only for certified Iyengar Yoga teacher members of IY(UK). NELIY is organising this event on behalf of our national association.

    Nearer the time, we might provide additional details about the day. We do know that it will focus on teaching pregnant women. But we're posting this event now, so that you can get it in your diary and book your place. We expect to ask you to bring equipment if you are able to, so that we can practise some supported asana with chairs, bolsters, etc.

    The moderator for the day will be Christina Niewola; we're delighted to welcome her to her first event in the NELIY neighbourhood.

    Eden School is a lovely venue, airy and bright. It's a kosher school, so please don't bring in non-kosher foodstuffs; a light lunch may be brought for the break, but should be vegetarian.

    Getting there:
    Nearest tube is East Finchley (Northern Line)
    Nearest buses - 263, 234, 102, 43, 134, 299 and 603.

  • Workshop with Amparo Rodriguez

    Sunday, 22nd September 2019 at 3:30pm - 6:30pm
    Location: The Iyengar Yoga Studio, Leicester Road, East Finchley, London N2 9EA

    We are very pleased to welcome Amparo Rodriguez to teach us this September.

    Amparo was born in Bogota, Colombia and came to Britain in 1974. She started practising and studying Iyengar Yoga in the 1980s and found this method very beneficial, as it emphasises the proper alignment in Yoga asanas. She has studied with Guruji Iyengar and his daughter Geeta in India, Germany, Russia and England.

    Amparo holds a teaching certificate at Intermediate Junior Level 3, which includes remedial and pregnancy teaching. She has been training teachers in Mexico, and is an assessor there and in the UK. She teaches weekly classes in West London, including at Iyengar Yoga Maida Vale.

  • Workshop with Marios Argiros

    Saturday, 9th November 2019 at 2pm - 5pm
    Location: The Iyengar Yoga Studio, Leicester Road, East Finchley, London N2 9EA

    We are please to welcome Marios for another workshop with NELIY.

    Marios’ first yoga teachers were Patricia Booth and Jeanne Maslen, who inspired him to take his dedication to Iyengar yoga further and follow the teacher training course at Manchester and District Institute of Iyengar Yoga. As a professional classical musician he found that the concentration, discipline and self-practice needed in music could be applied to yoga in the same way. He qualified in 2002.

    He has been a Senior Intermediate Level 3 teacher for several years, and continues to make regular visits to India to study with the Iyengar family at the Ramamani Memorial Institute in Pune, and also with Jawahar Bangera and Firooza Ali.

    He now divides his time between Hertfordshire and Greece, and combines teaching local classes with giving workshops all over the UK and Europe. He has also taught in the USA.

    In 2005 he began teaching yoga courses in Crete, an island that had felt like a second home for over twenty years, and he now spends several months there each summer studying and teaching yoga. He is inspired not only by his teachers, but also by his students, and the power of Iyengar yoga to work with and improve some very challenging conditions.

    Yoga was instrumental in his own recovery from a serious car accident a few years ago, and he feels enormous gratitude to have worked with Guruji in the medical classes in Pune. In late 2018 Marios spent several weeks in India, culminating in the Iyengar centenary celebration in Pune where he was very fortunate to experience Geeta Iyengar's last teachings.
