Rare opportunity to study with this wonderful senior teacher from RIMYI!
IYCWM is honored to host senior Iyengar teacher Devki Desai from Pune, India. We are thrilled to welcome her to our LiveStream for a special class.
Devki Desai began her study of Iyengar Yoga in Mumbai at the age of 19 under the direct guidance of Sri BKS Iyengar. In 1988, marriage brought her to Pune. As a result, she was given the opportunity to further deepen her studies at RIMYI. She is a direct disciple of Guruji, Geetaji and Prashantji.
For the last twenty years, she has been teaching at the mother institute. Her teaching journey began with women and children at the behest of Guruji. She accompanied Geetaji in 2003 to South Africa, New Zealand, and Australia for national conventions. In 2009, she was blessed to accompany Guruji to Russia. Devki annually travels internationally to teach workshops. She has taught in the United Kingdom, Canada, United States, Russia, France and Indonesia.
Her students often comment on her ability to beautifully incorporate the philosophy of Patanjali, the precision and discipline of the Iyengar practice with youthful energy. As a Senior teacher at RIMYI, she currently instructs pranayama, Intermediate level 2 and the Sunday children’s classes. In addition, she substitute teaches Advanced-level classes, as well as assists in the therapeutic classes.
