The Sacred Thread of Yoga

Agnes Mineur



As a young girl of 12 years old, and inspired by her mother, Agnes first started yoga. And when she was 14, Dona Holleman came in her life. She studied privately with Dona for a few years, before moving to New Zealand where she got a job as an occupational therapist in the day department of a psychological hospital. Whilst there, and still only 19, she first started teaching yoga. In 1970 she went to London with Dona and there met Mr. Iyengar for the first time. Her Guru then said "Come to India and I’ll teach you". So from January until June of 1971, Guruji taught her in his home, with only 4 or 5 other people present. These were highly treasured near-private classes which she has ever since looked on as a great gift. After this, Agnes studied with Gurui regularly for 1 month in London, and then 1 month in Gstaad where he also taught Yehudi Menuhin. In 1975 she was back in India ... and attended the grand opening of the Ramamani Iyengar Memorial Yoga Institute. Her marriage to Leo produced two beautiful daughters, and led to her specialisation in yoga for pregnancy, massage for babies, and yoga for the mother and child. Agnes was present at the teachers training course held in Pune in 2000. She is currently the moderator of the Dutch examination committee. Agnes is one  of BKS Iyengar's most senior and proficient students who teacher from the heart with love and passion.
