Jewel Yoga is delighted to have Laurie joining us again!  We welcome her warm, open, down to earth grasp of the gems that are an integral part of Iyengar Yoga.  This workshop will focus on the aspects of daily practice that touch on gratitude, courage, optimism and strength.

Laurie Blakeney holds an Advanced Level Teaching Certificate granted to her by the late BKS Iyengar.  She began her Iyengar Yoga Studies in 1971, and has studied annually in Pune India at the Iyengar Institute since 1983.  She has a BA in comparative religions, and a not so long ago career as a piano tuner/technician.

Laurie brings to her class a uniquely personal and direct style of teaching, challenging students while helping them to explore and appreciate their potential.  She loves to include artistic and philosophical considerations while staying true to the precision and healing technique known to be a cornerstone of the Iyengar Yoga method.

Open to students with at least one year of Iyengar Yoga experience.
