About Iyengar Yoga for Beginners (Summer)

A yoga practice based on classical Hatha Yoga, as developed by BKS Iyengar, with emphasis on precision and alignment in postures.

What will you learn on this course?

Iyengar Yoga places emphasis on precision and alignment. Basic standing, seated, and back bending postures (asanas) will be taught, as well as some recuperative poses. Inverted postures are introduced as and when the student is ready. Props (foam blocks, bricks and belts) are provided and used to make postures more accessible to students.

The course is hard working physical yoga practice and usually includes a short period of relaxation at the end of the class. Generally, students progress at their own rate with support from the tutor.

With regular practice, the benefits of Iyengar Yoga to body and mind are many, including increased suppleness, strength and stamina, as well as improved concentration and general well-being.
