Drop-in Classes

The Level 1 class is suitable for those new to yoga or the Iyengar method. There is no need to book, just turn up.

Beginners/regulars level class is suitable for new students and for regular students. Students are expected to practise, or build up to, sarvangasana (shoulderstand).

The intermediate level class is for students who have been attending regularly for at least 2 years and can achieve a stable sirsasana (headstand).

Gentle beginners is a shorter, more basic class for those who may find the Level 1 class too much of a step when first attending and is a way to bridge the gap and build up to a Level 1 class.

Saturday Morning Workshop Series  10.00 – 1.00pm

Effort and Ease: April 28, May 19, June 9

Sometimes yoga can seem a very relaxing activity but at other times we are asked to make a great deal of effort in an attempt to attain or maintain a pose. Then there are times we are asked to relax while maintaining a demanding pose. What are we to make of such contradictory requests? Is yoga about relaxation or about effort? In this series of workshops we will look at the nature of effort in yoga and what ease means.

These workshops are suitable for those who have been attending Iyengar yoga classes for at least 2 years.
