THIS WEEKEND at The Iyengar Institute of NY.

“Your body is the child of the soul. You must nourish and train your child.”

B.K.S. Iyengar said that.

“You must take class with one of the most highly regarded Iyengar teachers in the country coming to the Institute this weekend.”

One of our favorite and most gifted teachers said that! How can we not heed their words and share this with all of you NYC yogadorks? Read below for info on Chris and workshop details. Come play, learn and nourish.
