Jawahar Bangera this Weekend

Iyengar Yoga Workshop with

Senior Teacher Jawahar Bangera from Mumbai

Friday through Sunday, November 4-6, 2016

Austin Yoga Institute and Clear Spring Studio

Welcome Jawahar this November

Jawahar was originally introduced to yoga by his parents, who were pupils of Yogacharya BKS Iyengar. He has been practicing yoga directly under Iyengar's guidance since 1969 and has been teaching since 1980. In 1987, ’90, ’92 and ’93, Jawahar accompanied Guruji to conventions in the US, UK, and Europe and first taught in the UK at Crystal Palace in 1999. Since that time, he has been regularly invited to the UK, US, Europe, Mexico, and UAE to conduct workshops for both teachers and students. He has also conducted many Iyengar Yoga Conventions all over the world. Jawahar teaches classes in Mumbai, where he is a director of the Iyengar Institute in Lower Parel and is also a trustee of the Light on Yoga Research Trust (LOYRT). His visit will be an opportunity for all of us to experience Iyengar’s teachings directly from one of his most senior teachers.  His years of dedicated practice and study have helped make him a teacher who inspires us to move deeper into our understanding of Iyengar yoga.

One year’s experience with Iyengar Yoga recommended.

Junior Intermediate Asana and Pranayama Workshop (and Teacher Training)


at  Clear Spring Studio

September 24 – 25, 2016

This weekend we will do away with the regularly scheduled Saturday and Sunday Pranayama and Asana classes, and give the weekend over to an Intermediate Level Asana and Pranayama Workshop and Teacher Training. Regular students are welcome to attend the morning Asana classes, provided you have one year’s experience with Iyengar Yoga, can do a headstand and are ready to balance it away from the wall and approach variations, and are ready to actively push up into backbends. These are three-hour classes, and we will have assistants in addition to the teacher in class.  Now is the chance to move your practice forward and learn new poses and new ways of working!

The morning classes are for anyone interested in an Intermediate level asana class, the afternoon sessions are for teachers moving toward intermediate level work.  

The curriculum we are working with is the asana and pranayama components of the Junior Intermediate I and II curricula.  In the morning sessions we will present the asanas and pranayamas systematically, as one would in assessment teaching, and moving through all (or almost all) the two syllabi.  The afternoons will be devoted to clarifying questions about the poses and practice, and work on our core Intermediate teaching skills:  linkage between poses, moving deeper in understanding and teaching, observing and correcting/adjusting for a greater range of bodies and situations.  


9:00am – 12:00 Noon Public Asana Class ($50)

2:00 - 4:00pm           Teacher Training  ($50)

Sunday: Note new hours as of Thursday 22 Sept.

8:30 -10:00am              Public Pranayama   ($25)

10:15am-1:15pm           Public Asana Class  ($50)

2: 30-4:30pm               Teacher Training  ($50)

Cost:  $200 entire workshop
$120 for asana and pranayama combined, or per class price.  Make checks or other forms of payment to Austin Yoga and mail to 1608 Dexter St., Austin, TX 78704.
