As well as teaching at the BIYS, Pixie runs teacher training courses and workshops in Australia and in Europe. Pixie has been closely involved with the BKS Iyengar Yoga Association since it started in 1985 and with the running of assessments for teacher certification since that time. Pixie continues to go back to study with the Iyengars on an almost yearly basis. She currently holds a Junior Advanced certificate. What is yoga vastu? Vastu is the vedic science of architecture, it is about harmony in design Vastu Shastra (vāstu śāstra) applies to the physical world what the asanas and pranayamas apply to your body. It has similarities to feng shui in Indian culture and aims to achieve harmony amongst the objects and world that surrounds you. Yoga Vastu was created to represent the important second pillar of Iyengar yoga: the indispensable element of home practice. Many students are able to make it to classes and engage very positively with their teachers, but when it comes to maintaining a regular practice that they do at home, things start to fall apart.
Our objective is to provide the professional instruction that you receive in a class but available to you at any time from the comfort of your home.
