SKYS TURNS 30
SATURDAY 30th NOVEMBER 2019
30th Birthday Celebration of St. Kilda Iyengar Yoga School 30-11-2019
(In Gratitude of 30 years that our school St Kilda Iyengar Yoga School commonly known as SKYS has been open in St. Kilda)
Many, many students started their yoga journey here. Many fine outstanding teachers were birthed here form the teacher training program offered by its founder Simon Marrocco. In fact, many of the teachers went off on their own path to open their own schools.
With gratitude, we would like to dedicate our celebration to our beloved teacher/guru BKS IYENGAR who has now passed on 5 years ago at the age of 95, as well as our Beloved Geetaji, his daughter who has also passed away.
We hope you can join us on SATURDAY 30-11-2019 to celebrate with us

What is Iyengar Yoga?
The Iyengar approach to yoga is firmly based on the traditional eight limbs of yoga expounded by Patanjali in his classic treatise, The Yoga Sutras, written over 2,500 years ago. It is a disciplined and deeply researched system developed over 80 years by Yogacharya BKS Iyengar.
Iyengar Yoga concentrates on postural alignment and body awareness. This is not just for the alignment of one body part with another, but also for the proper functioning of the human being. If the body is aligned with precision then the breath is aligned with the same precision. If the breath is balanced then the mind, emotions and senses become balanced.
What is unique about Iyengar Yoga is that it is characterized in the practice of asana and pranayama with the innovative approach emphasising precision and alignment, planned sequencing, timing and the use of props.
This approach has allowed people of varying ages, levels of health and fitness to enjoy the benefits which a sustained practice can bring – the ability to face the physical, mental and emotional challenges and lead contemporary life with strength, vitality, mobility, thoughtfulness and equanimity.
