About the Teachers / Tour Leaders

Jenny Beeken studied Yoga in India with Shri BKS Iyengar; then taught yoga full time, developing a Teacher training school in 1992 - the Inner Yoga Trust. Now her influence is from Vanda Scaravelli’s teaching through Diane Long and Sophy Hoare.

Pauline Sawyer is one of the founders of the Inner Yoga Trust. She has practiced yoga on an inner level for many years, gaining deep insight and understanding from the body and its link to the mind and spirit. Her inspiration comes from this practice and her work with Diane Long and Sophy Hoare.

Alistair Shearer’s teaching and The Neeleshwar Hermitage are very special. He will give a philosophy class for an hour, each day, over the 6 days that we are there. We have experienced his teachings before and they are unique, very precious and relevant to our present day. Neeleshwar Hermitage looks lovely with its special position by the Indian Ocean for wonderful swimming and sea gazing so very relaxing and all the delicious food is included.

The Vythiri Resort at Wayanad is a naturalist’s treasure trove, with ethnic style cottages and huts set amid majestic trees in over 150 acres, and all food is included. Ajanta and Ellora are ancient caves with sculptures hewn from the rock of elephants and Buddha and with paintings depicting the Bhagavad Gita.
