Iyengar Yoga Beginners Course:
In the beginners course we’ll be learning new things! How to make shapes with our bodies and form standing and seated poses. As we work we’ll learn about balance and stability – encouraging a new kind of awareness, intelligence and freedom. The poses we work on focus our concentration and quieten down our minds. There will be plenty of help, hands on adjustment and direction so we can learn safely, and begin this wonderful self-study.
About me: I believe yoga positively transforms body, mind and soul! I’m passionate about the Iyengar method being accessible to all regardless of age, ability or state of health. I attended my first Iyengar class ten years ago and was amazed at how much I learnt and how great I felt – the door was open on a new kind of self-awareness and self-study! Since then I’ve been fascinated by the depth of the subject and never ending learning, the study of consciousness, the study of breath, the chance to gain and improve my health and the journey in. I’m grateful to have studied with senior teachers Rajiv and Swati Chanchani amongst many others that visit us at Manchester & District Institute of Iyengar Yoga, and share their knowledge and years of study with the Iyengar family in Pune, India.
“Words cannot convey the value of yoga, it has to be experienced” BKS Iyengar
