What is Iyengar Yoga?
The Iyengar method of yoga is named after the yoga teacher Yogacharya Sri B.K.S. Iyengar. The teaching helps you focus on correct alignment of the body in poses ensuring you’re working safely, with maximum benefit to your flexibility, strength and wellbeing.
Classes generally start with simple poses and gradually move towards more advanced poses, ending with a period of relaxation and sometimes incorporating breathing techniques.
Props, such as blocks and belts, are sometimes used in class to allow those with less strength or
flexibility to work correctly and achieve their full potential.
I trained as an Iyengar Yoga Teacher in 2005 and went on to take further training and assessments so I am qualified to teach at Junior Intermediate Level 3. My classes are friendly and I am passionate about the benefits yoga can bring to general health and wellbeing.
Classes are for beginners, more experienced students and yoga teachers. I also instruct students with special needs and teach children.
I have taught classes in schools, for statutory agencies and charitable organisations.
Individual classes can be arranged in the comfort of your own home or workplace.
All teachers of Iyengar yoga are trained to very high standards and fully insured;
this is part of the reason that Iyengar yoga is one of the most widely-performed methods of yoga worldwide.
An Introductory teacher has completed at least three years of regular Iyengar yoga classes followed by at least two years teacher training, and successfully passed a rigorous assessment.
Intermediate and Senior teachers have been practising and training for many more years and have passed a series of further assessments.
