Iyengar Yoga Harpenden

Iyengar Yoga was developed from Hatha Yoga, placing importance on precision in terms of alignment, sequencing, and timing. A step-by-step approach is encouraged to develop the mind, body, and spirit as you gradually progress from simple poses to more advanced ones. Iyengar is also known for staying in poses for a longer duration, meaning beginners will already be encouraged to develop a stronger willpower right from the start!

 

Who can take Iyengar Yoga Classes?

Iyengar is the most widely practiced type of yoga not just in the UK but all over the world. It is highly accessible to everyone, welcoming anyone from first-timers to more advanced or athletic students. Iyengar does acknowledge that as human beings we have different capabilities and physical limitations, which is why props are introduced for ease.

 

What to expect in Iyengar Yoga Harpenden classes

There are no specific sets of sequences to follow - the asanas practiced in a class today might not be the same ones tomorrow. This keeps the workouts fresh and trains you to become more aware of what’s happening. If you join Iyengar Yoga Harpenden classes aimed for beginners you’ll be starting with standing poses. More advanced asanas that involve sitting and reclining will gradually be introduced as you grow in your practice. Stick with your classes and soon enough you’ll see the wonderful difference it makes in your daily life!

These classes are for all yoga students. You will be taught step by step how to conduct a safe practise, in the calm and quiet space of The Garden Hideaway. There will be a maximum of 12 students in the classes and therefore the places are limited. Students will get plenty of time for learning, building strength and stamina with relaxation and adjustments. There will be a friendly learning atmosphere, where all questions will be welcomed. Students need to learn the postures in their own time, developing understanding and self awareness. This process will be individual and gradual with some people moving faster and others taking a little longer. There is no formula to learning and sometimes those who take longer understand how to do the work better.

Liz is a devoted Iyengar practitioner and as a result her classes are influenced by this form of yoga which focuses on structural alignment of the physical body through the development of asanas (positions) with the use of props such as belts, ropes, blocks, bricks, bolsters and chairs. Iyengar Yoga classes are highly verbal and precise, with misalignments and errors actively corrected. By the practice of a system of asanas, it aims to unite the body, mind and spirit for health and well-being. The discipline is considered to be a powerful tool to relieve the stresses of modern-day life, in turn helping to promote total physical and spiritual well-being. As such it is the ideal practice for beginners, older practitioners and those intimidated by yoga. Props also allow elderly, injured, tired or ill students to enjoy the benefits of many asanas via fully "supported" methods requiring less muscular effort.

I have been teaching Iyengar yoga (a type of Hatha yoga) for over 20 years. It is known for its safe and methodical approach. It therefore is accessible for people of all ages and conditions. I specialise in teaching one to one yoga face to face or online. Group classes don’t suit everybody, for a variety of reasons. Private Yoga sessions are designed for a students specific needs. I also teach Saturday workshops in Horsham, West Sussex.
