MEALS

As we want to spare you the inconvenience of looking for food outside, we will serve some food in the room.  Lunch will consist of something hot (dhal) or a soup, organic yoghurt, dry fruits. We'll keep it light and delicious.

LANGUAGE

English, as we want to avoid the tiring translation for the workshop. We would translate a few remarks if necessary.

THE PLACE

The workshop will be held at Espai de ioga, a beautiful yoga centre in the Old Town in Girona. It is on the fourth floor, where we enjoy great views of the city. This will be a small workshop compared to those of the big cities, and places are limited by the yoga room.

JUNE WHITTAKER

I have been practising and teaching Iyengar yoga now for more than 40 years. I believe that yoga teachers are many different things to many different people. In the case of this workshop, I will play the role of the teacher and I hope that you, in the role of student, will understand that it is purely circumstantial that it is I who will be teaching you and not the reverse. More than often enough, it is actually you who will no doubt be teaching me! An exchange between us. Yoga is interconnectedness. In actual fact I cannot really teach you for the biggest teacher we can ever have is ourselves. I can simply offer suggestions and guidance and accompany you on your journey. We will look inwards through the asana and I will facilitate your dive into the world and universe that is yogasana. My wish is to let each and everyone, through the work of yogasana, find their own potential, go deeply inwards and find light and understanding, there in the places where it is often the darkest. We will journey together over the course of a weekend. How privileged we will be!

I began learning the practice of Iyengar Yoga in London in the late 1970's and my path began by a search for something to replace both classical and contemporary dance. I eventually went to study in Pune with B.K.S. Iyengar, his daughter, Geetaji, and son, Prashantji, where and with whom I have been studying regularly ever since. I have a Senior level 3 teachers' certificate dating from 2007 and I look forwards very much to meeting you.
