It's almost the end of the year! Thank you to all our students for your dedication and attendance in classes, workshops, Led Practice and other events during 2019. All students have made steps along the path of learning, studying and practising yoga this year. Many students have now attended the Home Practice Workshop and have their own regular home practice. This type of commitment is so visible to teachers and it is so rewarding to see students developing their yoga practice and growing as individuals as well.
I would particularly like to point out the significant progression of two of our Level 2 students who have worked very diligently and consistently over the past few years. Kim Gilbank has been accepted to undertake Teacher Training in Canberra with Alan Goode commencing next year. To train as an Iyengar Teacher is a huge commitment involving trips to Canberra for 7 day blocks, daily practice, anatomy and physiology study, philosophy study and much much more. Kim's commitment is evident in her strong home practice, her unwavering attendance in class and her ability to see a positive in each asana. We send to Kim our best wishes and support for her teacher training and study next year.
Owen Williams (pictured) has been a student at the school for several years having started in the Intro Course with Fiona, moved to Steff's Level 1 class and then the Level 2 class this year. Ironically Owen expressed his reticence to step up to Level 2 this year! I am very impressed with his level of application in class and his devotion to home practice, not to mention his endless curiosity and questions! Owen has been working through the 'Introduction to Sadhana' course (which translates as Introduction to Practice) this year which is designed for students who are wanting to deepen their understanding of the practice of Yoga. The Sadhana Course is also run through Yoga Mandir and is an online course with guidance from a coordinator in Canberra. If you are interested in undertaking the Sadhana course I am sure Owen will be happy to speak to you.
