Why choose Iyengar yoga?

There are many forms of yoga: hatha, ashtanga, bikram, anusara, jivamukti, power yoga, vinyasa… How do you choose? Iyengar yoga:

  • Can be practised safely by everyone, irrespective of age, physical condition and state of health
  • Is a totally ‘holistic’ approach to wellbeing, working on the body, mind and emotions through the practice of physical postures
  • Is taught by accredited Iyengar teachers who have undergone a rigorous training programme, with practical and written exams in anatomy, first aid, yoga philosophy and teaching theory, and then who undertake continuous advanced training.
  • Is proven through scientific studies to be effective in helping alleviate certain medical and physical conditions.

The core principles of Iyengar yoga are precision, attention to detail, and a focus on body alignment. Aids such as blocks, belts and bolsters are frequently used to enable students to perform asanas correctly and safely, minimising the risk of injury or strain.

We teach yoga at all levels from yoga beginners to advanced, including children’s yoga classes.
