Iyengar yoga class with Usha Devi

August 1 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Usha Devi is world renowned Iyengar Yoga teacher, based in Rishikesh, India.  She will be visiting Yoga Point on the 1st August to teach a one-off evening class.

Usha Devi began her studies of yoga with B.K.S. Iyengar in 1993 and quickly became devoted to the subject and Mr Iyengar – or ‘Guruji’.  She makes annual visits to RIMYI, the Iyengar Institute in Pune, and runs a thriving Iyengar Yoga Centre, Patanjala Yoga Kendra, in Rishikesh.

Usha’s teaching style is very precise and focussed. Students are often astonished by the level of personal application and awareness that they are able to achieve during her classes.  For many, the first impression is of a demanding teacher but students quickly realise that Usha’s disciplined approach arises from a genuine love for others and a commitment to helping others along the path of yoga.  Most students who work with Usha Devi come to feel that her instruction has given them a true understanding of yoga and how yoga can improve the quality of their lives.  Her sense of humour and forthright common sense make her something of a legend in the yoga community.

In 1998, Usha Devi was involved in a serious road accident in which she suffered severe injuries. After six months in the hospital, many operations, and over a year confined to bed; she spent the following two years in plaster casts, undergoing constant medical treatment.  In March 2001, Usha Devi slowly returned to limited normal activities; and then in September of that year, she was fit enough to travel to Pune to study with B.K.S. Iyengar personally at his Yoga Institute.

Five years later, while on the way to recovery, a second car accident fractured both her femurs, putting her back into the hospital for yet more operations.  Usha Devi has no doubt that her recovery has occurred only with the help of Guruji, his yoga instruction, and his blessings.

“These accidents taught me to go into my yoga practice in a very different way; and that yoga can work for every body. The young, the old, the extremely aged, even the sick, the infirm, and the disabled can obtain perfection in yoga by constant practice. My goal is to let people know about this.”

Clearly, the process of personal recovery through yoga has given Usha Devi a unique understanding of the subject, and a deep empathy with other
