“I really enjoy Jo’s classes. I hadn’t tried yoga before and wasn’t sure what to expect but it energises me, it relaxes me and keeps my joints flexible”

Named after B.K.S. Iyengar, one of the key figures credited with bringing yoga to the West, the Iyengar method is known for it’s focus on correct alignment, progression and safety. In a typical beginners class simple poses or ‘asanas’ are taught, and as students progress teachers dive deeper into the detail of the poses as well as other traditional aspects of yoga including breathing, pranayama, and yoga philosophy.

BKS Iyengar (14th December 1918 – 20th August 2014) was a visionary Indian teacher who recognised the benefits of yoga and determined to make it widely accessible. His international bestseller ‘Light On Yoga’, published in 1966, is still considered an essential guide to yoga postures today. BKS Iyengar’s legacy is Iyengar yoga, an internationally standardised method of teaching popular with students everywhere. Characterised by precision, teachers of Iyengar yoga practice and study for a minimum of six years before they can instruct students. This high level of training has made Iyengar yoga one of the most trusted and widely practised forms of yoga in the world.

In the words of B.K.S. Iyengar in his bestseller Light on Life:

 

‘Yoga can be practised by anyone, whatever one’s state of mind or health. It is through practice that the scattered mind is brought to a focal point (knee, chest, etc.). This is a training regimen that moves us toward direct perception. Humour helps people move from fragmentation to wholeness too. It lightens the mind and makes it easier to guide and focus. A stable mind is like the hub of a wheel. The world may spin around you, but the mind is steady.
