One of the oldest systems of personal development,
yoga balances body, mind and spirit; it supports learning to live in
harmony with the self and environment.
Enhancing vitality, flexibility, strength, and concentration, yoga can be made suitable
for all body types and fitness levels.
The world’s most widely practised method
of yoga is that taught by yogacharya Sri
B.K.S. Iyengar of Pune, India. Through
his thorough study, understanding and mastery of yoga, he won worldwide
respect, making yoga relevant to people everywhere, no matter what their
physical or mental abilities.
BKS Iyengar’s textbooks, in
particular, “Light On Yoga”,
have become classics for all yoga practitioners. He set a high standard for
teachers and students. All teachers have to undergo extensive and rigorous
training to achieve the Iyengar certification.
Students learn through a programme of asanas (postures).
Pranayama (breath control) is gradually introduced when a firm base
in practice is established.
The approach focuses
on the practice of asanas (postures)
with extension and alignment. Progression will be made from basic postures
to increasingly refined ways of working, and more complex poses.
The class is made very accessible to all, whatever
your mobility* and constraints, learning in a small group, you will be
given clear demonstrations, instructions, individual guidance and
adjustment, to enable personal progress.

of both mind and body.
