The health of your body begins and ends with digestion.

The health of your digestive system, specifically the colon has a direct correlation to the health of your bones.  What is the connection? Jeanne-Marie will answer this and many other questions during this workshop.


  • How does the colon operate and what is it responsible for?
  • How does poor digestion affect bone health?
  • Which dosha is dominant during each phase of digestion?
  • Yoga and breathing practices specific to digestion and bones.
  • Ayurveda remedies for digestive strength and bone health

This workshop will use both Ayurveda and Yoga practice to help you find new ways to address your own digestive and bone issues

May 21 Hip Openers for Women:

By cultivating mobility in the hips, groins, and lower back we can free the energy locked in the pelvis and create health in the pelvic organs and lumbar spine. We will learn how healthy and mobile hip joints influence the hormone system and help us reduce low back pain.

May 22 Strengthening the Back:

A healthy spine is key to the health of the whole body. In this class Bobby will focus on poses that strengthen the legs; condition the muscles to better support the spine and withstand stress, and re-educate how the back is used.

Bobby Clennell has been teaching Iyengar Yoga for over forty years. She is a core faculty member of the Iyengar Yoga Institute of New York and teaches workshops throughout the United States and around the world.

Bobby began practicing yoga in London in the early 1970s while working as a costume designer and animator. In 1976, Bobby (along with husband, Lindsey, and sons, Miles and Jake) made her first trip to study with B. K. S. Iyengar in Pune, India. She has returned every two years to continue her study. She earned an Iyengar Yoga teaching certificate in 1977.

In the 1980s, Bobby’s interest in women’s issues was sparked by her studies with Mr. Iyengar’s daughter, Geeta Iyengar. While Mr. Iyengar was teaching the main class, the women who were menstruating were sent to the back of the room to work more quietly with Geeta. This experience awakened Bobby to the need for a woman’s yoga practice.

She is the creator of a short film, entitled Yantra, based on the movements of B. K. S. Iyengar during his own asana practice. Bobby Clennell lives in New York City.
