Yoga increases strength, flexibility, stamina, and focus. Through careful consideration of sequencing, correct alignment, and the use of props when needed, the Iyengar method makes the practice of yoga accessible to students of all ages and abilities.
Non-Iyengar students are welcome to join classes at any time. As all yoga methods are taught in a distinctive way it may be difficult to accurately assess an appropriate level and might require a bit of trial and error, so feel feel free to come and try!
Iyengar Yoga is taught in over 70 countries worldwide. All teachers are trained to rigorously high standards. After training regularly with a qualified Iyengar teacher for a minimum of three consecutive years, candidates undertake a three year teacher training program followed by the Introductory assessment. All teachers must continue training regularly and complete professional development training each year in order to maintain their certificate, and must train further and continue assessment procedures to move beyond the Introductory teaching level. In this way, the care and precision that characterizes Iyengar yoga is maintained.
These high teaching standards are part of the reason Iyengar Yoga is the most widely performed method of Yoga worldwide. Our Certification Mark is the guarantee of this quality.
