Iyengar yoga is the result of a life’s work
by Yogacharya BKS Iyengar.
Iyengar Yoga is based on the in-depth
practise of asana, the postures, and of
pranayama or 'breath control'.
What are the benefits?
Increased general well being.
Improvement in sleep and digestive problems.
Strengthened immune system.
An excellent antidote to the stresses and strains of modern city life, work and home pressures.
A typical class
Postures vary from vigorous to recuperative.
Postures specifically sequenced to ensure students benefit from the practice.
Students taught standing postures, sitting postures, twisting postures, back-extending postures, inverted postures and restful postures.
Initially the emphasis is on standing postures to build the strength and mobility needed for the other postures.

A little about myself
“I attended my first ever yoga class in 1973, while a student. I have practised consistently ever since, more intensively since I began teacher training in 1987.
I have travelled to India four times and studied with the Iyengars for a month each time. I have also studied with other senior teachers from France, Australia and the USA.
I am interested in the therapeutic aspects of yoga and, for instance, have used yoga to help runners improve their fitness and flexibility. As a trained counsellor and psychotherapist I believe wholly in the benefits that yoga can bring us, building our physical and mental wellbeing.”
