Lilian Biggs founded the BDIYI and was hugely influential in establishing Iyengar Yoga across our district.
She was born on the 20th September 1925, champion cyclist, expert ballroom dancer, great grand-mother and yoga teacher extraordinaire. She became an Iyengar teacher in 1974 and obtained her senior certificate in 1981. She had been to Pune to attend Mr Iyengar’s and Geeta’s classes 18 times. Lilian introduced thousands of people to yoga, she has also trained over 50 teachers, and has trained others to become trainers of teachers. She served her time as a moderator and an assessor and for many years has been running residential weekends in Yorkshire. She has taught abroad as well as at many national and regional events. Lilian has also contributed hundreds and hundreds of unpaid hours over the year to building the Iyengar Yoga Association.
