Yoga session for men only

After our first successful men only session in April this year we have decided to run a regular monthly class for men.

Men commonly find that they struggle with tightness particularly in the hips, hamstrings, and shoulders and can therefore sometimes find a yoga class a bit intimidating. 

The class will be taught by Jonathon Millet who has recently joined the IYISL teaching team and aims to find a balance of strengthening, stretching and relaxing the body in these sessions in a friendly, non-competitive, supportive environment.

You can read more about Jonathon's views on the men only yoga sessions in his blog post on this site.

Class times 11-1pm

Cost of yoga class: £9 members, £12 non-members

Sunday yoga session

This is the third of a series of sessions to help you develop  your yoga practice. Each session will take a deeper look  at a particular type of pose to develop your understanding and help you improve. 

This session will be taught by Lara Speroni - an experienced, clear and thoughtful Intermediate level teacher - and will focus on how to prepare for and practice the classic yoga pose Padmasana or Lotus pose. Preparing for Padmasana helps you develop flexibility in your hips and improves a whole range of other poses.

A yoga day with Zubin Zarthoshtimanesh

Zubin Zarthoshtimanesh is based in Mumbai India and is one of our most respected senior Iyengar Yoga teachers.

Zubin started learning yoga with BKS Iyengar as a child and has dedicated his life to teaching. He travels across the world teaching and sharing his passion for Iyengar Yoga.

Zubin has a special link with the Iyengar Yoga Institute South London. 

'I was there at the inauguration of this institute with Guruji  (on Guruji's birthday 14th December 1995) , as I was travelling with him at the time, so I of course know every aspect of this place... in fact Guruji had mentioned in his welcome speech that this centre reminds him of his own centre in Pune. I feel I have come a full circle now... to come and teach at this centre'

Zubin would like to run a yoga day at IYISL open to all Iyengar yoga students who want to come.

We invite you to join us.

We are extremely pleased to be able to offer a workshop with US teachers Mary Obendorfer and Eddy Marks. This is a great chance to attend a workshop with two teachers who have a  world wide reputation as transformational Iyengar 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 and insight.  

 

They co-direct the BKS Iyengar Yoga Center of San Diego which was established in 1979 and teach throughout the US and worldwide to share what they were privileged to learnt directly from the Iyengar family. 

 

For decades they studied with the Iyengars in India, living there for a year in 2003 and 7 months in 2009. They 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 Asana and Pranayama workshop is for all yoga students who are keen to deepen their Asana and Pranayama practice and understanding.

They will be running two sessions at IYISL.
