about yoga

Julie Anderson Iyengar YogaYoga is a practical subject where through physical exercise we bring awareness of body, mind and breath. It was developed by ancient yogis using inner resources to live in harmony with themselves and the environment. 

Today Iyengar yoga follows a safe, systematic approach to poses giving consideration to techniques and timing which is both absorbing and challenging and certainly not boring. Developed and taught in all five continents by one of the most influential teachers in the world, B.K.S. Iyengar, it enables a beginner to progress surely and safely from basic postures to the most advanced as they gain flexibility, strength and sensitivity of the mind, body and spirit.

In class students are given individual attention and may be encouraged to use props to help them do the poses mindfully and correctly, with relaxation and pranayma (breath and energy control) gradually being introduced.

Most people experience a sense of well-being as the body and mind relax and become energised.....sometimes exhilaration.
