This class is suitable for beginners and those wishing to study the basic asanas (poses). In Iyengar yoga, we begin by learning the correct alignment in the basic poses and build on these as we introduce more challenges to the practice. During the 11 week term, we will learn standing and seated asanas, twists, forward bends, balancing and inversions. Props (bricks, chairs, blankets etc.) are used to assist us to understand the basic actions required in each posture which will allow us to develop our practice.
All of our teachers have completed a minimum of 5 years’ training and continue to train with senior teachers.
