Studio: The Anna Wyman School of Dance Arts, 1457 Marine Drive, West Vancouver, BC
Ingelise Nherlan, the founder of Room for Yoga and an Iyengar certified teacher, has studied Yoga for more than 40 years. She was one of the early students of Mr. B.K.S. Iyengar and holds a Senior Intermediate teaching certificate awarded by him. Her teaching is a blend of careful asana work, thoughtful yoga philosophy and a generous dash of humour. She uses her advanced knowledge of the yoga asanas and her awareness of the power of yoga to teach students the energizing and calming connection between mind, body, and spirit.
In the late 1970s, Ingelise introduced Iyengar Yoga to her native Denmark with a series of week long workshops every summer, for 4 years. She has since taught workshops across Canada, developed new teachers through her Room For Yoga Teacher Training Program, and contributed as an assessor to certify new teachers for the Iyengar Yoga Association of Canada.
Ingelise has a deep connection to and respect for her Guru, B.K.S. Iyengar, and has studied at the Iyengar Yoga Institute in Pune, India, during several month long visits. Her last visit was in the summer of 2010.
