After a first successful men only session in April we have decided to run a regular class for men only. Jonathan Millett has recently joined the teaching team at IYISL and will be teaching these sessions.
We asked him some questions about why he thinks these classes are needed.
Iyengar Yoga students the world over start their yoga class by singing the Invocation to Lord Patanjali. This explains why its important.

We are extremely pleased to welcome back US teachers Mary Obendorfer and Eddy Marks who taught a very well received weekend workshop for us last year. This is a perfect opportunity to attend a workshop with two teachers who have a world wide reputation as transformational Iyengar yoga teachers.
Mary and Eddy are certified at the Advanced level with a wealth of experience and the ability to convey BKS Iyengar’s illuminated teachings with clarity, insight and positive energy. They teach throughout the US and worldwide to share what they feel they were privileged to learnt directly from the Iyengar family.
They studied with the Iyengar family in India for decades and say that Guruji's original and transformative approach to yoga inspires them to guide students with clarity and precision working from the skin to the soul.
This weekend Asana and Pranayama workshop is for all yoga students who are keen to deepen their Asana and Pranayama practice and understanding. They will be covering Iyengar foundational principles to help change your practice and understanding, keeping the hip region healthy and the progression of Bhramari Pranayama.
It is possible to book each day separately but we will try to give preference to those attending the whole weekend.
Friday 26 Apr 2-5pm
Saturday 27 Apr 10am-4.30pm
