Henryk began practicing Iyengar Yoga in 1984 and has taught since 1993. He holds a Senior Intermediate Level three certificate, making him the most senior teacher in Poland.
Henryk began his study of Iyengar Yoga after leaving flying school, in 1984, and beginning his university study, where he earned a Masters in Pedagogy.
The teachings of Sri B.K.S. Iyengar instantly stuck a chord with Henryk and he became a dedicated and enthusiastic student making numerous trips to Pune. He has the blessing of Guruji to conduct Therapy classes, Teacher Training Programs, Continuing Education Courses and Assess teachers as part of the Certification Program.
Over 20 years of teaching, Henryk has taught thousands of students, including many who have gone on to become Certified teachers themselves.
In 2008 he completed a three-year course with Stephanie Quirk in the Therapeutic Application of Iyengar Yoga at the Iyengar Yoga Institute in Cologne, and has assisted the Iyengar’s in the Medical Class at RIMYI since 1997. Henryk has been co-operating with Rita Keller, of Germany, for many years, and hosts many esteemed Iyengar Yoga Teachers for workshops in Poland, including Stephanie Quirk and Manouso Manos.
Almost three decades of practice have shown Henryk the power, complexity, completeness and fullness of the Iyengar Yoga method. His dedication to the Iyengar family and his respect of their teaching means he strives to pass on the teachings with purity and authenticity. Henryk continues to teach and train teachers in Poland and through out Europe. He is very excited to be given the opportunity to also teach in Australia with Tamar.
