Yoga session for men only

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

Session times 11-1pm

Cost of yoga session: £15 members, £20 non-members

Yoga workshops with Eyal Shifroni

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.
