Iyengar

Named for, and developed by B.K.S. Iyengar, this is a highly detailed style with focus on posture and precise alignment. The style makes strong use of props to help students access poses without compromising their alignment and encourages personal modification to reduce the risk of injury or strain. This is a progressive style, and therefore important that you find the right level for you. If ever in doubt, try out a Level 1 class and make your way from there.

Level 1 – A great place to start your Iyengar Yoga journey. Level 1 is perfect for beginners and those wanting to get back to basics. This level will focus on fundamental principles of posture and sequence. Please attend 6 months of Level 1 before moving on to other levels.
Level 2 – Suitable for those with 6 months+ attendance of Level 1 Iyengar. Classes will typically cover a wide range of postures including forward folds, back bends, twists, inversions and restorative poses.

Level 3 – These classes are challenging and typically include more advanced postures. Level 3 classes are suitable for experienced practitioners only.
