Iyengar Yoga Accessible yoga:

Learn how to make shapes with your body to form standing and seated poses. Develop stability and flexibility. Immediately experience more freedom in your body and eventually in your mind. The poses we work on help us focus, concentrate and quieten down busy minds. Theres plenty of help, hands on adjustment and direction so we can learn safely.

The beginners class is open to all including complete beginners and “bad backs”.

 

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

Hi, I'm Mary. My practice is comprised of a mixture of Hatha, Vinyasa, Astanga as well as meditation and Pranayama (breathing exercises).
I believe that although Yoga is a serious practice, it can be a lot of fun too! 
Alongside being a 200 Hour Yoga Alliance member, I have also completed a level 3 and 4 nutrition AFN as 'wellness' encompasses our diet too. MY City Yoga is set up with you in mind, the goal of my classes is for everyone to come away feeling good. I want yoga to be accessible to not just the already 'bendy', 'strong', 'young', but to any shape, size and income. 
I'll see you on the mat. 

                                     

This class is open to all whether you are completely new or looking to progress! A mainly Hatha based class with some incorporation of Vinyasa and Astanga. Classes usually will be a combination of some strength training and stretches ending with a relaxing cool down. My class will also have breathing techniques and some hands on adjustments. Variations will be suggested to that those who want a bit more challenge can take those and those would wish to ease in a little more can take other suggestions.

ABI ALLEN
GLUTE SQUAD

GLUTE SQUAD:
Glute-focused lower body class, incorporating compound movements and banded glute isolation exercises to target those all important glute muscles. Aesthetics is often a big incentive for people to train their glutes but there is also much more to glute training than a peachy looking bum! The glutes are the largest muscle group in the body and they should be our powerhouse, helping us to run faster, jump higher and generally perform better. Strong glutes = improved performance and decreased risk of pain and injury!
 About Abi: I have been a personal trainer for 4 years and have had a long and diverse relationship with health and fitness: I danced ballet, tap and modern for 13 years, before becoming a keen runner and completing a number of events including the London Marathon. After the marathon, I developed a love for resistance training, which spurred my decision to become a Personal Trainer. I have taught a number of popular glute-focused classes over the past 4 years, and have developed a passion and knowledge for glute training, which led me to the decision to set up my own class.

My goal is always to deliver you a challenging workout, in a friendly and encouraging atmosphere, with an emphasis on correct form and technique. I want my clients to leave their sessions with their mood elevated and feeling stronger in mind and body!
