particular special thanks, to Moira Nicholson, Corrie's teacher for many years who pointed her in the direction of teaching. Moira also introduced her to Winnie Young. (Born Nov 11, 1911) Winnie took up yoga at age 54. She was fortunate enough to be accepted into the first group of South Africans who traveled abroad to receive tuition from Shri B.K.S. Iyengar in 1968. This was the first of many courses under the master. WY founded the Young Yoga Institute for the training of teachers of yoga in 1975, adhering strictly to what she had learned from Shri B.K.S Iyengar. The YYI follows the Eight Steps of Patanjali as interpreted by Shri B.K.S. Iyengar. Therefore Steps 6 to 8 form an important part of their teaching curriculum.

Dorothy Richard Evans (Robinson) from London, UK who spent more than a year in South Africa and was private tutor to CV.

Jenny Morris from the B.K.S. Iyengar Yoga Institute of Southern Africa who made the necessary recommendations to Ingelise Nherlan in Vancouver to take CV into the fold and to allow her to further her studies under the Iyengar Yoga Association of Canada.

And of course, thanks to the many students over the years, who have been the teachers.

a teacher you become, by your pupils you are taught.

... friendly but firm guidance. My participation in squash and baseball was greatly enhanced by the increased flexibility I gained through your classes.
Thx, Howey

Thank you for your endless patience and humour ...

The true purpose of yoga is to bring one to a state of TOTAL LIVING, to a state of complete stability in body, mind and spirit. A state where the body can, and does become a fit vehicle for raising the mind and heart to God. This is the true purpose of yoga. It is a purpose that applies to both sexes, is impartial to race and colour and transcends all creeds. Do Yoga and become a better person.
