Kripafoundation Iyengar yoga Intensive workshop with the students of the Bandra Iyengar Yoga community was held at Pune. A visit to Guruji B.K.S. Iyengar was the highlight of the workshop. The beautiful new premises of the post graduate wing of JDV (Papal Athenaeum) offered an opportunity to try out standing Bhismasana too. The most Indian Chapel with the centre figure of a Dancing Jesus was ideal for including the Mass within the workshop. The daily programme consisted of three hours of Asanas, two hours of Pranayama and two hours of Meditation. The compus of the JDV also offered the early risers to have their morning walk. A blessed experience of understanding Iyengar Yoga within the Kripa Model of Recovery to live with Addiction and Immunofeciency ailments. The participants were Teachers of Kripafoundation Iyengar yoga and patients of special health needs.
