From Tasha “I first practiced with H.S Arun in 2013 at Karuna in Northampton, in preparation for taking the Williams College students to his hometown in Bangalore.  I ended up in chair supported parivrtta janu sirsasana (deep twisting forward bend), more relaxed than I’ve ever felt in an asana.  Then he came to Tasha Yoga in the Spring of 2014 and taught many of the local students and we noticed a big shift and deepening at the studio.  In the Winter of 2015 I did bring college students to his studio in Bangalore, where he teaches everyone from lithe German Iyengar teachers to elders from the community walking with canes.  He taught my pretty raw beginners and everyone had a good experience.  Lately I’ve been working with his book Experiment and Experience on the Chair and finding the chair poses very helpful in my own practice. I’ve been teaching from the book too and again the whole room changes to a deep restorative feeling even in the chair standing poses.  This is a unique opportunity to practice directly with an Indian teacher of forty years at a time when the dialogue between the Indian roots of yoga and its Western iterations are making yoga even more of a global practice.”

From Studio Yoga in New Jersey: “Beginners will get expert fundamental instruction. Intermediate students will learn how to deepen their poses. Advanced students will learn how to fine tune their practice. H.S. Arun has totally dedicated his life to the propagation of Iyengar Yoga. He takes personal interest in each and every student with a thorough understanding of their strengths and weaknesses and guides them to perform according to their capacities. His continuous research into all aspects of yoga and its relation to the mental and physical well being of man has helped him to introduce innovative methods of teaching asana. This in turn helps the students grasp the finer aspects of the postures. His ever-ready wit and humour enliven the classes.”
