Introduction to Iyengar Yoga
Our Introduction to Iyengar Yoga Course is great value for money and a brilliant starting point if you are new to the Iyengar method. Students will be introduced to the concept of Iyengar yoga, alignment, precision in posture, extension, stability and internal observation. Standing poses are introduced as well as seated and the preparations for future inversions. This class is also ideal for those with previous yoga experience who are new to the Iyengar method, or who are in search of a “refresher” course.
General class level
These classes are suitable for all new students or those with less than two years’ experience of Iyengar yoga. Basic yoga postures (asanas) are taught to develop strength, stamina and flexibility, and are suitable for any age group. You don’t have to complete an Introduction to Iyengar Yoga Course first, though we do recommend it. Teachers can recommend if other levels would be more suitable.
For students who’ve been coming to Iyengar yoga classes regularly for at least two years. Work is more intensive than the General classes and you’ll be introduced to a wider variety of asanas, and basic pranayama.
Intermediate / Advanced
For students with at least four years’ training in Iyengar yoga, who can maintain a stable Sirsasana (headstand) and Sarvangasana (shoulder stand) for at least five minutes and who have established an independent practice. Work will be more demanding and asanas are studied in more detail. Please ask at the studio for further information.
Slower Paced Yoga
This class is suitable for those who are keen to practice yoga but want a slower paced class that suits their needs.
Older students find Iyengar yoga helps them maintain flexibility and stamina.
This class also offers those with minor physical ailments, pain and age related challenges, the opportunity to continue with their yoga practice.
