Bobby Clennell's Guide to Pune

Pune Guide by Bobby ClennellStudy at RIMYI, our Mother Institute in Pune, India, is central to our continuing education as teachers and practitioners.

It contains information about travel documents required, travel to India and travel from Mumbai to Pune, Institute protocols, accommodations in Pune, shopping and restaurants , vital services and other tips.

As Bobby writes: "In order for this guide to reflect the growth and continuing development of the city of Pune, it will be updated annually and reissued each spring. Please send your comments or offerings, or anything you think should be included to If you notice that a phone number listed in this guide doesn't work or becomes redundant, let me know. If you can clarify any of this information -- if you can complete an address or notice that an address has changed -- please notify me. All contributions that are of benefit to students and teachers of Iyengar Yoga who are on their way to Pune will be included.

"I am grateful to the teachers and students who submitted material for this project. Heartfelt thanks also to any future contributors who help to keep this resource alive and relevant. Bon Voyage! May this guide help oil your yoga wheels and speed you on your way to a meaningful and safe stay in Pune. Namaste, Bobby Clennell."
