I was going to write a different email this week but I just have to share with you the interview of Gulnaaz Dashti, my teacher. 

If you want to know more about Iyengar yoga from the perspective of someone who has been immersed in it right at the feet of BKS Iyengar, Geeta Iyengar and Prashant Iyengar  this is an excellent interview as she sheds a bright light and clears up some misconceptions. And she is so funny!

Around 1:00:00 She talks about how Zoom teaching. And confirms that the light of yoga can be received via Zoom - not as good in person due to the lack of touch but it's advantageous.
