Now is a great time to start – we have yoga classes to suit everybody!
IYENGAR YOGA is a complete system of yoga – we do everything, beginning with alignment in the standing poses, through a variety of sequences, seated postures, twists, inversions, backbends to long holds in supported (comfortable) restorative asanas, relaxation and pranayama (breath work). We have a very thorough teacher training system which enables us to give individual support to students, adapting poses so that everyone can do them, even the very stiff or infirm! Students progress at their own pace so that everyone is challenged but nobody runs ahead of what their body can cope with. more
