We are very happy that Abhijata Iyengar is holding this workshop in Sweden – it is such a great opportunity for all yoga practitioners to experience a truly special teacher. The event is open to all interested in yoga, and for yogis who haven’t had the opportunity to go to Pune this is a fantastic opportunity to meet and experience the knowledge of the Iyengar family.
The inspiring Abhijata Sridhar Iyengar is the grand-daughter of Guruji B.K.S Iyengar. From the young age of 16, she started seriously studying yoga under the direct guidance of Guruji, her aunt Geeta S. Iyengar and her uncle Prashant Iyengar.
Thanks to Australia Iyengar Yoga Convention for sharing their video of Abhijata teaching!
Abhijata has travelled with Guruji to Russia and China, assisting on conventions. She accompanied Geeta S. Iyengar to conventions in Great Britain, Australia, Germany and USA. She has taught independently at conventions in France, Spain, Italy, Switzerland, Poland, UK and Israel.
Her teaching is carried out with great energy and clarity, and with remarkable poise. Abhijata is commanding with a welcoming but still firm touch. Her teaching combine precise asana instructions with knowledge of yoga philosophy, and her instructions are peppered with anecdotes of her beloved grandfather.
Along with her yoga expertis Abhijata has a masters degree in Bioinformatics from the University of Pune. Today she is a full time devoted student as well as a Senior Teacher at the Ramamani Iyengar Memorial Yoga Institute (RIMYI) in Pune, India.
We are truly honoured to welcome Abhijata Sridhar Iyengar to Gothenburg, Sweden!
