Yoga

Yoga is one of the oldest systems of personal development in the world. This system of balancing the body, mind and spirit was formulated by ancient yogis, who understood man’s essential nature and realised a way to utilise all of man’s inner resources to live in harmony with himself and the environment.

Iyengar yoga

Iyengar Yoga is a stimulating form of exercise whereby postures, or asanas, stimulate the whole body, toning muscles, improving posture, increasing circulation, invigorating the nerves and organs and restoring strength and stamina bringing vitality to the body.
Learning about the alignment of postures, asanas, brings concentration and clarity to the mind whilst exercising the physical body. Iyengar Yoga will keep you healthy and active in both the emotional and physical sense.

Iyengar yoga teachers

All Iyengar yoga teachers are trained to rigorously high standards. After training regularly with a qualified teacher for a minimum of three consecutive years, candidates undertake a two year teacher training programme followed by the Introductory Level 2 assessment. Once qualified, teachers must continue training regularly and complete professional development training each year in order to maintain their membership of the Association. In this way the care and precision that characterises Iyengar yoga is maintained.

These high teaching standards are part of the reason Iyengar Yoga is the most widely performed method of yoga worldwide.  The Certification Mark is the guarantee of this quality.
