What we'll do

Yoga workshops are about exploring, not endurance tests! In these three workshops come and explore some of the mythology behind asanas like Bharadvajasana, Ardha Chandrasana and Anantasana. We will also touch upon the Ramayana story and how it relates to yoga philosophy and our asana work. Travelling more widely beyond the asanas helps to bring the asanas to life and to start to deepen understanding of the mind, body, breath association within the asanas. Sarah Delfas celebrates 20 years of teaching Iyengar yoga this year. Her experienced asana practice has been enhanced over the past two years by regular classes with Prashant Iyengar and Rajiv Chanchani which centre on the "inner social" of the associated mind, body and breath. 23 - 25 August, 9 - 11.30am in Forest Row. Join one, two or all workshops. Suitable for all but complete beginners. PLEASE CONTACT ME BEFORE BOOKING at sarahdelfas@gmail.com or 07901 833585.

Sarah Delfas·Certified Iyengar yoga teacher since 2002
I discovered Iyengar Yoga in 1990 whilst studying Classics at university; I happened upon a class taught by a man called Kofi Busia and was hooked. It took me a while to realise that Kofi was a student of BKS Iyengar, the legendary yogi who brought yoga to the West, and was in fact one of Iyengar's first pupils in the UK. I qualified as an Iyengar yoga teacher in 2002 (taking 5 years over the training and having our first two children during the process). Iyengar yoga teacher training requires you to have attended regular Iyengar classes for at least 3 years before even beginning to learn to teach and involves a mentoring process over at least 3 more years. After that we attend regular professional development days and take more assessments over the years to progress and develop as teachers. I attend regular classes and workshops with senior Iyengar teachers from the UK and India and have studied at the RIMYI Institute in Pune with the Iyengars. I now hold a Level 3 certificate and am a mentor to Iyengar students training to become teachers. I teach adults and young people and welcome students of all levels and ability. Yoga is for everyone and I enjoy bringing it to beginners as much as to more advanced students. I am indebted to the profound work of BKS Iyengar, Geeta Iyengar and now Prashant and Abhijata Iyengar who share their knowledge and experience with an infinite generosity that has given us a practice of yoga that is safe and available to all. Huge gratitude also to Rajiv Chanchani whose classes have been transformative and an invaluable companion to those of Prashantji. The journey into each asana is endless and there is always more to refine and more to discover. I sustain a regular practice and exploring the connections within the asana, between the asanas, between the mind, the body and the breath, with the mind, body and breath, leads me never to tire of yoga practice or teaching. I live in Sussex with my husband and 4 children and motherhood and yoga have inevitably led to my teaching yoga to children and young adults. I am a founding member of Iyengar Yoga UK's Children, Young Adults and Families Committee which works to ensure that we are bringing Iyengar yoga to these age groups and to help teachers to develop their teaching skills for this. I aim to teach my yoga classes in the spirit of "friendliness, compassion, gladness and joy" as in Patanjali's Yoga Sutra1.33.
