We are sad to report the death of one of the UK's most experienced and inspiring senior Iyengar yoga teachers, Genie Hammond, on 26 September. Genie was a great friend of NELIYI, and one of its Honorary Members. She was a very approachable and compassionate teacher, extremely knowledgeable, and hugely supportive of other teachers, who often turned to her for advice. Genie was a long-standing student of BKS Iyengar, and her contribution to the yoga community in London was considerable. She was energetic and delightfully direct in her manner, and will be much missed.
