Safety is paramount in Iyengar yoga

At the start of every class please mention any medical conditions or injuries that may affect your ability to participate in the class. Your teacher wants to ensure that you are able to take part in the class without any risk of injury. Where necessary, some students may be given variations or alternative poses to practise.

Your teacher will demonstrate the shape of the postures before you try the pose for yourself. This visual learning is an important element of the Iyengar yoga teaching method. So take time to observe, and feel free to move from your mat to move closer and get a clearer view of the demonstration.

At the end of each course session there is time to ask the teacher any questions you may have about Iyengar yoga and what you have learned in class. Work at your own pace and if you need to release a pose, do so.
