About Bobby Clennell

Bobby Clennell has been teaching Iyengar Yoga for over thirty 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.show more

Customer reviews

Bobby Clennell is a genius! This book has the best illustrations of poses (each of which has many variations depending on your flexibility and, most importantly, where you are in your cycle). The instructions in the book are written so well that women without yoga experience could benefit. The first few chapters have helped restore my faith in the female body and its ability to heal - what a gift! Each pose is kicked off with a benefit section, which often includes instructions for various menstrual disorders (endometriosis, uterine fibroids) and their associated symptoms. The final chapters cover sequences for different times of the month and gorgeous sequences to relieve the many and varied symptoms of P.M.S. I have recommended this book to many women. I absolutely love it!show more
