Bobby Clennell Weekend Workshop – Elements and Koshas
June 19-21, 2015

We are honoured to welcome Bobby Clennell to Ottawa! Bobby has been a direct student of B.K.S. Iyengar, Geeta Iyengar and Prashant Iyengar for 40 years and is a senior teacher at the Iyengar Yoga Institute of New York. She is author and illustrator of three books, The Woman’s Yoga Book, Watch Me Do Yoga and Yoga for Breast Care. Her teaching is strong, energetic, precise and kind.


According to yogic principles, everything in the universe, our body included, is made up of five elements: earth, water, fire, air and space. Our own beings also comprise five “sheaths” or koshas; the Annamaya, Pranamaya, Manomaya, Vijnanomaya & Anandamaya Koshas. In this workshop, via asana and pranayama, we will explore and balance our own unique expression of these forces. We will learn where the koshas and elements meet and how these intersections inform our practice.

Fee is $275 by March 15 (includes HST) and $315 after March 15. The workshop will take place at the beautiful Three Sisters Hall of the Canada Agriculture and Food Museum. Click here to register. This is an Intermediate workshop; students should be familiar with Iyengar yoga method of practicing Sarvangasana and Sirsasana. Please email us for more information.
