Iyengar practice on Phillip Island, Vic with Fiona Rawson

on March 17, 2013

Fiona teaches in a lovely, bright, yoga space, which is equipped with ropes and props for 10-12 students.

Whilst visiting Phillip Island (PI) I was most fortunate to be able to attend two Iyengar classes with Fiona Rawson.

I was introduced to Fiona (an Iyengar teacher) at an Iyengar workshop in Melbourne. I told Fiona I would be visiting PI, she then gave me her contact details and class times. She had asked me where I was staying on PI – at that time I did not have my accommodation details with me… When I arrived at PI, I contacted Fiona and told her where I was staying – co-incidentally, I was staying in the street where Fiona lived 🙂 It was all “meant to be”. We arranged that Fiona would pick me up and take me to her Thursday evening class.

Fiona teaches in a lovely, bright, yoga space, which is equipped with ropes and props for 10-12 students. Fiona often has fully booked classes, however as I was on PI over a long weekend some of the regular students were away, therefore I could use one of the spare spaces. Yeahh!

On Thursday, 7 March, we practised standing/balancing asana, eg Vrkasana, Ardha Chandrasana, and on Monday 11 March we practised twists – standing, seated, inverted.

Fiona suggested an adjustment technique, ie to first place a hand on the floating ribs, followed by placing the hand in the mid chest/breast area and turn the chest, ie floating ribs stay put. This technique worked very well for me.

I very much enjoyed time spent in Fiona’s class – she has a gentle, caring, warm manner.

Big hugs and many thanks to Fiona for enhancing my visit to PI.


PS If you are visiting PI and would like to attend a class with Fiona, telephone 03 5956 8786
