In the late eighties I suffered from lower back pain. Physical therapy did not help. After a brief search through various types of yoga I discovered Iyengar yoga. The pain soon disappeared and never came back. However Yoga gave me more; I felt energetic, alert, happy and healthy. My enthusiasm and need to deepen my practice of yoga led me to the teachers training in Amsterdam. After obtaining my degree in ’91, I travelled to India and had three weeks of intensive lessons from B.K.S. Iyengar and his daughter Geeta in Pune, India.
In all yoga postures I give detailed instructions on how to do them safely. I ask you to concentrate on the posture and to observe the effects. Depending on your physical abilities it will be hard work and sometimes you will work up a sweat. There will be little opportunity to let your mind wander. The overall result at the end of the lesson is a deep relaxation.
“Words fail to convey the total value of yoga. It has to be experienced.”
