My Journey to yoga
I discovered yoga 11 years ago and my journey began!! From a very stiff student with a chronic back problem to a teacher today with no back problem.
In the words of BKS Iyengar “Yoga is like a light, which once lit will never dim. The more you practice, the brighter the flame” These words I truly identify with.
What My Classes are like
Iyengar yoga has been described as meditation in action. Practicing the yoga postures with awareness has an integrating effect and works to harmonise mind and body.
Iyengar yoga technique emphasises precision and alignment. Yoga Postures are held for longer than in some other methods, allowing tight muscles to lengthen and relax, and helping to focus awareness. Yoga Props such as blankets, blocks, bricks, bolsters and belts may be used to improve precision, alignment and awareness in performing the yoga postures or to help students with difficulties or limitations to safely progress in the asana.
My Study and Credentials
I have recently completed my introductory level 2 Iyengar teaching certificate and plan to continue to further progress through the teaching syllabus.
