Workshop with Swati Chanchani
Breda Starting date : 03/06/2016
“Ashtanga-YOGA of Sage Patanjali as taught by the renowned Yoga-masters Yogacharya B.K.S. Iyengar, Srimati Geeta Iyengar and Sri Prashant Iyengar of the Ramamani Iyengar Memorial Yoga Institute, Pune, India.”
Swati Chanchani is a dedicated student of B.K.S. Iyengar for forty years. Together with her husband Rajiv Chanchani, and separate they have taught and organized classes in India, the USA and Europe. In 2006, Swati inspired us with her first workshop in the Netherlands, which was in Breda. Rajiv also taught in Breda several times, and in 2010 they both gave a workshop of 4 days here. We all know them for their famous book “Yoga for children”. But they did more work to spread Yoga into the world: in June 1988 they founded the Yog-Ganga Centre in the foothills of the lower Himalayas, in Dehradun (www.yog-ganga.com). Further on, Rajiv and Swati have made a major breakthrough by bringing Yoga formally into the Indian education system: their syllabus on Yoga has been accepted by the I.C.S.E. (India's leading board of education). They both are four months in Pune to attend classes at the RIMYI (Iyengar’s Institute) every year.
