Iyengar Yoga Australia — Senior Teacher Series — In Conversation & Online Classes

Twelve of Australia’s most accomplished Senior Teachers. Twelve livestream classes. Twelve in-depth interviews. Embark on a profound journey into the heart of Iyengar Yoga practice.

The teachers in this program were instrumental in establishing and cultivating Iyengar Yoga in Australia. These Senior Teachers are direct students of Yogacharya BKS Iyengar, and his family.

This is an opportunity to learn firsthand from some of the finest and most experienced yoga teachers in the world: live online.

These two series, with six teachers featured in each, will span 2020 and 2021. Every Sunday, one Senior Teacher will teach a 90-minute livestream class online. Recordings can also be viewed later.

We also bring you these teachers “In Conversation”: a special series of 12 in-depth video interviews capturing the depth and vitality of each Senior Teacher. Hear them speak candidly about their approach to yoga and to practice. These insights are not to be missed.

Please join us for this historic event. A rare chance to learn from an array of Senior Teachers connecting us to the source of Iyengar Yoga. Let us honour our tradition in the quintessential Iyengar way: through practice and direct experiential learning.
