“Don’t be exclusive, be inclusive….not only in asana but every walk of life”B.K.S. Iyengar
I am excited to share that 22 years after I began my Iyengar yoga journey as a teacher, I achieved level 3 status after a recent demanding exam process.
The senior teachers of Australia began cultivating Iyengar Yoga in this country in 1985. They are brilliant role models for all who have followed. Through them, I learnt to be a practitioner who is whole hearted and committed.
BKS Iyengar created each assessment sequence
s to deepen the teacher’s understanding and ability to teach asana. It is from this process that we are then able to relay these teachings to our students.
Iyengar believed, and I share this belief: We must feel the practice and absorb the messages that it is sending to us.
This assessment is a critical and hard-won milestone in my ongoing yoga journey. By completing it, I will maintain the standards of those who came before me – it is by no means the end of my learning path.
Having come from a school teaching background, I value the way the yoga practice helps to develop the tools and skills each of us need not only for our practice but for our everyday life.
I am excited to continue my yoga path of learning and enlightenment. As a level 3 senior teacher, I commit (or recommit) to impart the teachings of BKS Iyengar to my student body.
I give gratitude to the student community of Yoga Atma for supporting me and being on this journey with me.
