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.
