Posting of the Month - Memories of BKS Visits to Edinburgh

24 Feb 2023

We seem to have missed a month or so over the festive season but our Posting of the Month is back!

Elaine Pigeon is sharing recollections and photos  of the two visits Guruji made in 1982 and 1984.


Bob and Kathy Welham started teaching Iyengar Yoga in the 1970s and in 1979, they purchased an old bank building in Bruntsfield and in 1980 opened the Edinburgh Iyengar Yoga Centre in the building we now know so well.

This was only the second actual building to be dedicated to Iyengar Yoga in the UK after the Iyengar Yoga Institute in Maida Vale, London.
