Did you teach or attend classes in the 70s, 80s, 90s, 2000s, 2010s?

Do you have any old newsletters or photos or did you write an article yourself? Don’t forget the 2020s and lockdown.  

Do you have any photos or stories from your first trip to Pune, or your first convention, or any personal memories of Mr Iyengar or any inspirational teacher?
