iyoga exclusively promotes Iyengar Yoga as taught by BKS Iyengar.
Julie has been taught by Guruji himself and has learned on numerous occasions from his daughter Geeta and son Prashant too.
Yoga is a practical subject where through physical exercise we bring a greater awareness of body, mind and breath. It was developed by ancient yogis using inner resources to live in harmony with themselves and the environment, this still holds true today.
Iyengar yoga follows a safe, systematic approach to poses giving consideration to techniques and timing which is both absorbing and challenging. We also focus on holding poses with correct alignment to re-train muscles and improve posture. Developed and taught in all five continents by one of the most influential teachers in the world, B.K. 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 (exercises for breath and energy control), gradually being introduced.
Most people experience a sense of well-being as the body and mind communicate through intelligent exercise.
Classes are ongoing during (and outside of) school term time. You can join at any time but for admin purposes classes are sold as 8 week-blocks. Should you miss a class then you can make that up elsewhere within the block.
It is recommended to attend regularly for the most benefit.
Beginners: Suitable for beginners and continuing students who wish to consolidate at this level.
