Yoga session for men

Increasing numbers of men are drawn to yoga to increase their flexibility and to reduce stress levels. The male body has a tendency to become stiffer as well as stronger and needs a different approach. Iyengar yoga has much to offer helping men understand how to work with their bodies and offering a wide range of props to help.

This session is for men only and will be taught by an Iyengar yoga  teacher, Nick Train, who teaches directly from his own experience. Nick has been teaching men-only classes since he qualified as an Iyengar yoga teacher. Join us to learn how men can benefit from yoga.

Session times 11am- 1.30pm

Cost £20 members, £25 non-members

Her teaching is not to be missed - she integrates clear and incisive teaching of yoga asana with the deeper elements of yoga philosophy. She is both gentle and energising as a teacher.

Yoga workshops with Eyal Shifroni

to Jul 1

Yoga workshops with Eyal Shifroni

Eyal Shifroni is a senior level Iyengar teacher who has been teaching since 1985. He is based in Israel and teaches workshops across the world.

Eyal first published 'A Chair for Yoga'  and  he has since published three volumes of 'Props for Yoga'.

In a recent blog published on his website he wrote.

'Alignment and ‘Iyengar Yoga’ are quite synonyms. Alignment is probably the most characterizing hallmark of Iyengar Yoga. The principle of Alignment is closely related to principles like: balance, symmetry, precision and harmony – all are fundamental principles in yoga practice.'

We are very pleased to have the opportunity to study the inter-relation of these two strong themes of Iyengar yoga with Eyal - alignment and props.

He will be running two sessions at IYISL. 

Spaces remaining - Friday 29 Jun 2018 -  half day workshop aimed at general level and confident beginner students.

Weekend workshop now full - Saturday 30 Jun - Sunday 1 Jul 2018  - two day workshop aimed at intermediate level students.
