Your Iyengar Yoga Retreat Instructor

Genny Kapuler has studied yoga since 1976 and has been teaching since 1980. She has studied three times in India with the Iyengar family. Her primary teacher was Mary Dunn. Before the birth of her child and before she began teaching yoga, Genny performed as a modern dancer; for many years, she had her own company. She is also trained as an Alexander Technique teacher and is a practitioner of Body-Mind Centering. In addition to her yoga training, Genny has studied anatomy extensively.

She applies this knowledge to her understanding and teaching of yoga, directing her students toward a deeper awareness in asana and pranayama through precision of alignment. Genny also uses the poetics of language to guide her students, and to create “a mind-state in the room that is gentle and focused.” Through Iyengar Yoga, she says, students attain ever more precise alignment of the skeletal-muscular, organ, and nervous systems. Working towards harmony of body, mind, and spirit, they are able to move out into the world with more grace. www.gennykapuler.com

Some details and things to know for this Iyengar Yoga Retreat.

What kind of food is served and how much?

Nutritious, wholesome and delicious meals are served at Blue Osa. During this retreat, we serve three meals daily, with a snack provided in the afternoon. Our vegetarian-oriented meals are served family style, and usually, we serve meat or fish at the evening meal. Although we typically provide a buffet style presentation, the meals provided are not all you can eat and are proportioned accordingly. Since we are not a full-service restaurant, we do not offer individual choices from a menu. If you do have any dietary allergies, please let our kitchen know and we will do our best to accommodate you. Blue Osa is devoted to serving the freshest food possible that is delivered daily to our kitchen. This is true “farm to table dining”. Please read more about Blue Osa Cuisine here.

While the Blue Osa staff can make some adjustments in the menu to accommodate some requests, we are unable to accommodate individual orders and Blue Osa does not provide Kosher Meals. Please read a sample weekly menu here.
