What you will learn

Iyengar Yoga named after its creator B.K.S. Iyengar is often associated with the idea of alignment. In class we study each asana (posture) methodically and learn correct alignment sometimes using props such as belts, blocks, bricks, chairs and more, when appropriate, to guide the student toward the final posture.

Learning Outcomes

By the end of this course, you will be able to:

  • demonstrate some basic yoga postures
  • demonstrate some knowledge of correct alignment and use of props
  • use your breath effectively in order to relax and calm the mind

Class format and activities

This will be a weekly class held at our newly refurbished North Kensington Centre. Over the 5 weeks course you will: - study basic yoga postures (Asanas) to improve flexibility balance and stamina, - learn correct alignment for a safe practice and how to use yoga props, - study simple breath exercise (Pranayama) to help relax and calm the mind, - learn basic principles of yoga philosophy with a 5 minutes presentation at the beginning of each class.

Entry requirements

There are no entry requirements for this course and all levels/abilities are welcome to join

What you need to know before you enrol

The class is progressive and student centred. It will be designed round your needs rather than expecting you to fit yourself to its agenda and demands

What you need

Please wear comfortable clothing. Mats and blocks are provided but I encourage you to bring your own equipment whenever possible. If you own a yoga belt, do bring it. Avoid eating just before your class. Leave a gap of at least 2 hours between a snack and your class. Please do not drink during the class. Please let me know before the class if you have any injuries or physical conditions that might affect your practice. If unsure send me an email.
