from Sunday 12th July till 24th July we will have the pleasure of welcoming Emma Isokivi from Edinburgh as our Mysore Guest Teacher.
She will be running our morning mysore program and a few extra sessions during her stay with us. Based normally in Edinburgh, she runs the midday and evening mysore program at Meadowlark, which caters for both beginners and experienced students. She began practicing yoga in 2006 (Bikram, Moksha, Sivananda) and a daily Ashtanga practice in 2011. She has had the honour of studying and assisting with several senior teachers, but calls Sarah Durney Hatcher and Sharath Jois her teachers today. As a student she is committed to practicing at ‘the source’ and returns annually to KPJAYI, the last trip returning in February 2015 after 2 months of study with Sharath Jois. As a teacher, Emma is dedicated to encouraging students to build a daily practice that can support and enhance their daily lives.
Aside from the yoga mat- you can find Emma making printwork in her studio, rock climbing around Scotland or explore new areas on her bike!
She will start with the Sunday morning Mysore session, which will be followed by a workshop. So watch this space for more details on that one.
This stint should give us all at the studio a time to practice with someone who is practicing in line with the tradition which Sarah held so beautifully and clearly. I am sure we will all learn a few new ways of listening to ourselves, to listen within and enjoy our practice held and presented with a different flavour of energy.
