Jenny Livingstone

Jenny LivingstoneJenny qualified as an Iyengar yoga teacher in 1980. Soon after this she found herself in Pune, India on an intensive course taught entirely by B.K.S. Iyengar himself. This was an unforgettable experience which has significantly influenced her life so far. She has returned regularly to India to travel and attend further yoga training.

In the early 1990s Jenny received her Intermediate Level 3 teaching qualification and then travelled to Nepal to spend several months teaching yoga in an English speaking Buddhist Centre. Whilst there, she studied Tibetan meditation and developed an appreciation for the meditative quality of asana and pranayama practice. With more than 30 years of experience Jenny is particularly inspired by the power of the breath to calm the mind. She hopes to communicate this meditative quality in these monthly workshops.

“The yogi observes details like time, posture and an even breath rhythm, and is alert and sensitive to the flow of prana within him… Evenness of breathing leads to healthy nerves and so to evenness of mind and temper.”
Bks Iyengar
