Challenge yourself, relax more deeply. Carefully structured varied 75 or 90 minute classes will help you to learn how to improve your posture or deepen your yoga practice. Suitable for beginners and experienced practitioners. Restorative class every 4th week.
Classes will include standing, sitting, twisting, back bending and inverted poses. Classic postures (asanas) are used in a dynamic, precise way to achieve balance of both mind and body. Relaxation and Pranayama (breathing practices) will be included in every class.
Classes follow the Iyengar sequence with a 4 weekly programme, each week exploring a set of postures (asanas) and breathing (pranayamas) in a variety of ways. Your understanding develops as you learn how to improve your mobility and flexibility, whilst gaining mental and physical stability and steadiness.

The Iyengar method of yoga is named after Yogacharya Sri BKS Iyengar.
You will learn to 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 incorporating breathing techniques. Props, such as blocks and belts, may be used to enable you to work correctly and achieve their potential in terms of strength and flexibility.
The postures are very precise and you will be guided through them by experienced teachers who are trained to make appropriate adjustments for different physiques and for people with specific problems.
The classes can be hard work, as the poses involve intense stretching; however, you will leave the class feeling lighter and calmer. The immediate benefits of Yoga are greater flexibility and strength, and better physical health.
As you continue with your practice, psychological and spiritual benefits begin to appear.
