Workshops and Retreats

“Yoga allows you to rediscover a sense of wholeness in your life, where you do not feel like you are constantly trying to fit broken pieces together.”
― B.K.S. Iyengar

Alan Goode Senior teacher from Yoga Mandir in Canberra- Weekend Workshop September 13th- 15th

We are fortunate to have secured Alan Goode for a workshop in Adelaide this year. Alan was Vanessa’s principle teacher early in her yoga path. He was there at the Coast Yoga opening in 1994 and will return for 25 years of Coast Yoga.

Alan Goode is the Director of Yoga Mandir in Canberra.  He is a senior teacher and a direct student of BKS Iyengar- one of the most influential teachers of Yoga in the last century.

Alan began Yoga in Sydney in 1975 and continues to travel regularly to India to study with the Iyengar family at their institute in Pune. He began teaching in 1983 and commenced Yoga Schools in both Sydney (Newtown 1984-1996) and the Blue Mountains (1992-2003) before opening Yoga Mandir in January 2005. As an Iyengar Yoga Institute Yoga Mandir aims to provide the teachings of BKS Iyengar through its programs offered to a national audience.

Alan is passionately involved with the practice of yoga and its application to daily life. Through his writing he unravels the themes of the yoga sutras and demonstrates their link to our daily practice.
