This event is in the past.
We are delighted to welcome Richard Agar Ward for a two day weekend event. This is a great opportunity to improve your practice with one of the most experienced teachers in the UK. Richard began teaching yoga in 1977, following his first visit to India to study directly with BKS Iyengar. Now a Senior teacher, he is a Moderator for our national association, IY (UK), and has been training Iyengar yoga teachers since 1990 (at Introductory, Junior and Senior Intermediate levels). Since 1977 Richard has attended courses and classes in Pune at RIMYI on 20 visits, making him one of the UK teachers most experienced in how yoga is taught and learned at our parent Institute in Pune. Together with his wife Kirsten, he lives in Bath and runs the Bath Iyengar Yoga Centre, where they both teach. Richard also teaches in London, elsewhere in the UK, and overseas.
Saturday's will be a General workshop, open to those students who have been practising Iyengar yoga for at least 2 years. On Sunday Richard will be teaching an Intermediate session for more experienced students; teachers and trainees are specially welcome.
On each day, the workshop will start at 10 am and end at 4pm, with a break of about an hour during that time. Please note that this event will be held at a different venue from usual. You will need to bring your own yoga equipment (1 non-slip mat, 4 foam pads, 2 bricks, belt). We will be able to provide some if you let us know in advance.
Advance booking is strongly advised for this workshop. Not only does it secure your place, and help the teacher plan the sessions, it allows us to contact you if there are any last-minute changes. You can book and pay online; click on 'Buy tickets', and make sure you choose the right option according to whether you are booking for Saturday, Sunday, or both days. Please note: to be eligible for the NELIYI member price you must be a paid-up member at the time of booking and at the time of the workhop itself (note too that the concessionary rate for those on low-income is only available for NELIYI members).
If you have any queries about the workshop, or wish to book offline, please email Judith Simo (firstname.lastname@example.org).
