Iyengar Yoga for Beginners
Yoga is a practice that brings union, physically, mentally and spiritually, creating a quiet and restored sense of wellbeing.
This practice is based on precision of alignment and sequencing. You will learn the postures suitable for the beginner student, with new postures introduced each week, and then consolidated. Basic yoga philosophy is also included within the classes.
Yoga’s combined application of body awareness with alignment, loosens tight muscles, decreasing pain and discomfort.
Yoga strengthens joints and the core bringing lightness and mobility. Balanced movement and breathing patterns help improve circulation.

Regular weekly attendance to your class is recommended. You can attend Beginners classes for as long as you wish before moving up to Level 1 classes. This may be as short as eight weeks or as long as three months or more. Level 1 classes are the next on-going class level.
“I like the pace of instruction – explanation is very clear. Also, useful when given extra information about not doing certain positions or changing these if have certain injuries eg. lower back pain.”
