“Intelligence, when awakened says: What a fool I’ve been!”
BKS Iyengar, Pune, December 2003

Dear Students,

It’s an exciting week at the Centre! Our annual Teacher Training Intensive is taught annually in Victoria by Ann (Kilbertus) and Louie (Ettling). This week it moved online!

38 teachers from Nova Scotia, Quebec, Ontario, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and BC, have joined us from coast to coast for the first live-stream intensive! Committed, bright, creative teachers are exploring the new Iyengar yoga syllabus with Ann and Louie.

Britta is on vacation for two weeks so Monica is at the desk to take your registration for September. Our Online Unlimited pass offers four virtual classes for the price of two. Some studio classes are filling quickly – please call now to make your choice. The Student Intensive from August 31 to September 4th, with Lauren and Ty, still has spaces available online at half the price of the in studio option.

New virus cases jumped in BC on Wednesday with the health authority reporting the third highest single day total since the start of the pandemic. To manage the risk of transmission at the Centre, we now ask screening questions as you enter the lobby. The questions relate to general health and travel. For those who have travelled, our questions are probing. If you have travelled, or been around anyone who has, please call us before you come to class. We are happy to offer online classes, or class credits toward next term if you cannot come into the Centre for a couple weeks.

Everyone who has been asked to stay away for 14 days has been kind and understanding. We appreciate your cooperation very much!

Namaste, love
Wendy and Monica
