This art can be practiced by young or old, weak or strong, firm or infirm, irrespective of gender and under any climatic conditions.

However, the practice must be done according to the requirements of the individual, the circumstances, and temperament.” – B.K.S. Iyengar

Class Descriptions

We encourage students to attend classes on a regular/weekly basis. A prolonged study at every level leads towards a steadfast progress in the art and science of yoga.

Level I (1hr 15 mins)
Beginners, as well as those who have done yoga but are unfamiliar with the Iyengar style or have lapsed in their practice. The classes cover basic standing and sitting asanas, and preparatory for Inversions, such as Salamba Sarvangasana (shoulder stand).

Level II (1hr 15 mins)
Once you become more or less proficient in the basic classes and are able to come up into Salamba Sarvangasana (shoulderstand) on your own, you may be allowed to join the Level II classes.

General (1hr 30 mins)
A MIXED LEVEL class open to LEVEL I and LEVEL II students. Students with less than 3 months of regular practice are recommended to attend LEVEL 1 and/or INTRODUCTORY SERIES.

Gentle (1hr 30 mins)
This slower-paced class is taught with more modifications and props to accommodate students (not limited to seniors) who require a softer, well-supported and restore practice. Restorative asanas and sequences soothe the nerves and enable emotional stability in long run.

 

Introductory (1hr 30 mins)
An Introductory Series (8 sessions) is the ideal place to start your yoga practice. Learn the fundamentals of Iyengar yoga in a systematic manner, and build up your strength and understanding while learning how to use your body. This course is a good basis for beginners.

 

Group Practice (45 mins)
This group practice will be opened to regular practitioners who attend at least two classes a week. Practice sequences to be given during class. Students may attend this class online or in the classroom. Permission to participate in this practice is at the discretion of the teacher. 

We offer different class levels and packages.
