Cle Souren is the Founder/Director of the B. K. S. Iyengar Yoga Institute Amsterdam, one of the largest Iyengar institutes in the world. He shares his over 30 years of yoga practice in Iyengar tradition to about 400 students who come to his studio regurlarly.
In 1984, Cle and Nanda Peek established the BKS Iyengar Yoga Institute and Center of Amsterdam IYCA. Three years later the IYCA started to offer 3-year certified B. K. S. Iyengar Yoga Teacher Training Program. More than 260 students from different countries graduated so far from the program in which currently 75 students from 15 different countries are enrolled. Cle believes meditation is not a separate entity as it can not be thought in a singular form. He agrees with Guruji's teaching that asana practice is an active but almost meditative stillness.
