Gulnaaz lives in Pune, India – teaching all levels at the Ramamani Iyengar Memorial Yoga Institute for over 20 years. In 1998 Gulnaaz was granted a teaching position by Guruji (B.K.S. Iyengar) to teach beginner classes at the Institute in Pune (RIMYI). Her practice of more than 20 years & teaching general and medical classes at the Institute has been under the ever watchful eye of the Iyengar family and particularly guided by Dr Geeta Iyengar. Since that time she has become one of the senior teachers who teaches beginner’s, Intermediate, advanced, as well as assisting in the medical classes.
