The 2018 conference theme is “Wise Action, Joyful Effort.” We look forward to celebrating the centenary of Guruji’s birth in this spirit with internationally renowned Iyengar yoga teacher Birjoo Mehta.

Birjoo began studying with Guruji when he was 8 years old. He went on to accompany Guruji on teaching tours worldwide, and has taught at national conferences in Europe, Asia and the Middle East. What better way to celebrate this centerary together than by studying with a teacher whose sadhana evolved over the decades under Guruji’s guidance.

Poster of the event

The conference welcomes experienced Iyengar yoga students steady in Sirsasana (at wall fine) and Sarvangasana.

Accommodation can be made for experienced Iyengar yoga students with special needs. If you are in doubt about whether or not to register, please seek the advice of your teacher.


Props required are a mat, 2 bricks, a belt and your Sarvangasana setup. Please bring your own props! If you are absolutely not able to bring props, there are a limited number of prop packages available by contacting Renata Moretti by the end of August. We will ask for a $20 cash deposit when you pick up your prop package. It will be refunded when all props are returned intact. The prop kit does NOT include a mat.
