Iyengar Yoga is suitable and beneficial for everyone. It is a non-competitive yet progressive practice which improves health in general. It is precise, with an emphasis on correct, safe practice.
In all classes the aim is to awaken the bodymind and get the energy flowing. Students follow a programme of postures which extend and align the body, with more difficult postures gradually being introduced. Students progress in their practice of postures safely at their own pace, to suit their body, often with the use of yoga equipment ‘props’ to achieve this aim.
Teaching Yoga since 2001, I love seeing people of all ages and abilities transform. I teach an alignment based practice guided by the breath and embodied awareness. Classes are reasonably active but do not exhaust. They warm and awaken the body whilst calming and refreshing the mind. Iyengar teachers are trained to correct students and, if permitted, may make hands-on adjustments where needed.
