Level 1 yoga class

Monday 30 March
6:00 pm - 7:15 pm

This class is suitable for beginners (it’s best to complete the Beginners Course first but not compulsory) and those who are new to Iyengar yoga.

This class teaches a wide syllabus of poses including standing poses, seated poses, twists, forward bends, backbends and restorative asanas. In Iyengar yoga, we all study all of the poses as it is important to maintain and explore the full range of movement within the body. We incorporate long holds, flowing sequences, use of equipment and in depth study of actions involved in asana practice. This is a class (not a group practice) and you will be taught how to work safely and given individual instruction to help you to learn and improve.

There are many styles of yoga available now – fast or slow, hot, arial, flowing, supported etc. These are mostly a Western invention about marketing yoga, offering people yoga ‘to suit them’, to make it more appealing. Iyengar yoga is a classical form of yoga and we teach the entire subject, not just the bits we like best – because we all need to do it all. Often, we need most to do the bit we like least! Luckily, it is very enjoyable and the rewards are many!

If you would like to find out what yoga is really about, this is a very good place to start.
