Foundation class Wednesdays 6-7.30pm
This level is designed for all of you who are a bit rusty or new to Iyengar Yoga. It will take you through how to do the Yoga postures (Asana) right from the very beginning and teach you how to use the equipment (different props) to improve your performance. This is very special for Iyengar Yoga. You do not need to be flexible or young to start.
Foundation classes are a wonderful way to re-start or begin your Yoga journey – the basics of each Asana (posture) are taught slowly and in depth to give you the confidence you need to move up the levels if you wish.
No pre enrollment is necessary, just turn up on the day.
60 + class Thursdays 11.15-12.15 noon
Welcome back to the 60+ class, the class who caters for you of any age, who simply feel too stiff or challenged to attend other classes. This class is only one hour long and yet includes all the learning regarding foundation that you need, while using props to help moving your body into various Asana (poses).
This is a combined class for students who have done Yoga before but are new at IYC, as well as for regular students. Attention will be given to your alignment and individual modifications needed in the postures, using a variety of props. This is essential in the beginning of learning.
Shoulder stand, Salamba Sarvangasana, will be introduced.
For students who are practising on a regular basis headstand, Sirsasana, might be included in this class. All the Asana from the new Level 1 syllabus will be presented.
This class is for regular practitioners of Iyengar Yoga. There will be more depth given to the basic Asana and some more challenging postures will be taught. We will introduce you to Asana from the new Level 2 syllabus. Regular attendance is recommended. Please ask your teacher if this level is suitable for you.
This class is for more experienced students, trainees and teachers with a regular Iyengar Yoga practice and class attendance. Here we will continue to go deeper into the Asana from the new Levels 2 and 3 syllabi and occasianally from Level 4.
Sirsasana and Salamba Sarvangasana with variations are taught in each class.
