Event Details

Birjoo Mehta came to the United States as B.K.S. Iyengar’s choice to lead the 2013 Iyengar Yoga Teachers’ Convention in San Diego. He was so well received that IYACSR invited him to return in 2015, and now he has agreed to return for another 4-day workshop during Labor Day weekend 2017.
Birjoo has lead national Iyengar Yoga conventions in the United States, United Kingdom, Spain, Germany, France and South Africa, and he has conducted workshops in Israel, Ireland, Hong Kong, Canada and the United States.
Birjoo, who comes to us from Mumbai, India, began learning yoga directly under B.K.S. Iyengar in 1974 and has traveled extensively with him during tours to Europe, United States, Australia and China.
