Pash has been practicing Iyengar yoga since 1998, initially exploring yoga as a form of exercise, to gain strength and flexibility. As her passion and understanding of Iyengar yoga grew, it cultivated a deep love and patience for practice, yoga principles and time spent on the mat.
Pash has been studying and practicing yoga with James Bahuth, for over 11 years. She completed her Iyengar Teacher Training Accreditation with support from James, under the guidance of two of Australia’s Senior Iyengar Yoga teachers, Simon Marocco and John Leebold.
Pash commenced teaching Iyengar Yoga in 2007 at St Kilda Yoga School, along with corporate classes for ANZ Banking Group. Now she works closely with the joyful yoga community at Yogaha, in Ripponlea.
Her goal is to continue to help teach, and share the wonderful art of Iyengar yoga. As an epileptic, Pash has been fortunate enough to experience the benefits of a sustained practice and feel the improvement to her health. She understands first hand, the importance of altering your practice to suit your individual health or body.
Pash regularly visits the RIMYI Institute in Pune, India, to study with the Iyengar family and attend global classes facilitated by Dr Geetaji and Sri Prashant Iyengar, and Guruji’s grand-daughter, Abhijata Iyengar. Over 100 students from all over the globe travel to Pune each month to attend classes with the Iyengar family. The time spent in Pune is most inspiring and treasured learning.
Pash is dedicated to her ongoing professional development and commitment to her personal practice. Apart from her visits to Pune, she continues to further develop her knowledge by travelling around Australia to participate in yoga work-shops, intensives and conventions, lead by some of the world’s most revered Iyengar Yoga teachers. Pash has also studied Applied Anatomy and Physiology of Yoga with Simon Borg Olivier (MSc BAppSc Physiotherapy) and Bianca Machliss (BSc BAppSc Physiotherapy)
Pash’s love of yoga continues to grow and her ‘yoga passion’ is to encourage personal commitment in students, to help develop a deep, sustainable yoga practice….and good health.
