Iyengar yoga is a form of hatha yoga that is easy for every kind of body to access. Whether you’re new to yoga, still in the early stages, or looking to learn more advanced poses, these classes will inspire you.
We’ll work on poses that demand precision and alignment, whether standing, seated, prone or supine. And you will find options to suit your level within the poses.
Iyengar yoga works to integrate the body, mind and breath. We often use props – bricks, straps, blankets and bolsters – devised by B.K.S. Iyengar to help students attain poses or ‘asanas’ safely. The SSI Wellness Centre is well-equipped with props. Please bring your own mat.
When you practise or attend a class within your own home, you can often find alternatives to props. Especially important during the winter months when ‘flu is more common, we will work on supporting the immune system with special sequences and pranayama (yogic breath).
Suggested equipment at home:
Mat, strap, 2-3 blankets, 2 bricks (pile of books), chair (dining style chair).
Basic props or furniture can be adapted in most cases.
Please see Zoom FAQ for information to assist you to get the most out of your online yoga class.
