In 2002 Geetaji toured Europe teaching and lecturing in many countries. One of the lectures she gave in Czestochowa (Poland) on April 29th was on practices for women during the whole month. The lecture was later edited by Geetaji herself, and published as a benefit for the Bellur Trust.
In her lecture, Geetaji notes that “Yoga is one, but women and men differ from each other, and every individual differs from each other. Constitutionally though there is no difference as far as the physiological functioning of the body is concerned, yet constituently there are differences between men and women. It does not mean that yoga is different for a particular kind of body, but the capacity or ability is different for each person. It is only a question of how we adapt the practice so that it brings a proper balance and becomes suitable as far as the physical body and mental capacity is concerned.”
It is in honor of the wisdom of Geetaji’s teachings that we are excited to offer this weekends workshop covering the life cycle of women as it relates to her practice. The workshop, Yoga A Woman’s Journey, will be taught by respected teachers Osha Hanfling and Elise Miller. Registrants of all 3 workshops will receive a copy of Geeta Iyengar’s Yoga a Gem for Women.
