General Iyengar Yoga

For people with some Iyengar yoga experience or those who have completed a Beginners Course. It is designed to develop and extend asana practice. Students continue to consolidate the basics, and are introduced to a wider range of poses. Classes will include backbends, shoulderstand and start to build a foundation for headstand. Basic pranayama and yoga philosophy will also be introduced. The class is challenging but taught in a safe and methodical way.

What is Iyengar Yoga:

Iyengar Yoga is a methodical and deeply researched system, emphasising precision and alignment, planned sequencing and progression, timing and the use of props. This approach to yoga has allowed people of varying ages, levels of health and fitness to enjoy the benefits of a sustained yoga practice. During the class, students are encouraged to focus on postural alignment, not only for the alignment of one body part with another, but also as a means of restoring balance and harmony to the breath, mind, emotions and senses. Consistent practice builds physical and mental strength and flexibility, deepens conscious awareness and enables one to navigate the modern world with greater stability, clarity and inner peace.

Classes are run as course modules. Please contact Emma for pricing, dates and booking.
