Geetaji's Summer Solstice Sequence

21 June was chosen as International Day of Yoga as it coincides with the Summer Solstice. The date is the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere and has special significance in many parts of the world. Geeta Iyengar has created a specific sequence for International Yoga Day taking into account that it coincides with the Summer Solstice. This sequence is being taught in Iyengar Yoga centres all over the world.

 

“We are all yoga sādhakās and sādhanā is our very breath, our prāna . The United Nations has declared 21 st June as the International Yoga Day, which will be celebrated all over the world. For us everyday is yoga day. However to respect this special day [the concept of which was suggested by Guruji] in a talk in Bangalore sometime in 2011-2012, to respect Guruji, we have thought of a special practice programme for this day. Many students from across the world approached me if they could have a special sequence of practice for this day… the (summer) solstice.” - Geeta Iyengar

 

In this class, Ursula Moser will teach the “summer solstice sequence” created by Geetaji. 

 

Price: regular 90-minute class prices apply. Consider bringing a friend for free (see below).

Teacher: Ursula Moser
