The Reasons Everyone Should Try Iyengar Yoga.Yoga gift card

At our yoga studio we teach Iyengar yoga which is a style of Hatha yoga. The advantages of Iyengar include:

  • All yoga classes, including Beginner classes, are taught in carefully planned levels, which means you learn step by step
  • Iyengar Instructors give clear instruction that details how to get into the poses
  • Because of the clear instruction, you do the poses correctly rather than just rushing through them. Knowing how to do the poses properly gives you independence to practice correctly at home
  • Props are used at all levels, so you can easily get into the postures no matter what level of flexibility you have
  • Postures are taught in steps so they are easier to do and learn, and therefore get benefits from. Most other types of studios don't break postures into appropriate steps and stages
  • The teachers take the time to assist, and know how important it is to do so
  • Iyengar teachers are trained for a minimum 400 hours, over three years. Many teachers in other yoga styles have just a fraction this training. Having less training means less knowledge to pass on, and can't offer you as much help or instruction
  • Over time, you are trained in how to do inverted postures like shoulder stand. A significant proportion of yoga benefits come from inversions. Most other studios, do not do inversions, or don't do them correctly
  • There is a much smaller chance of injury with the Iyengar method, because of the way we teach our poses, we build our practise from the ground up. We are able to do this using the graded levels at which you are introduced to postures and the detailed instruction that from teachers
  • Hot yoga excludes a large number of people with conditions such as pregnancy, menstruation, and menopause (hot flushes etc) because the over-heated room is unsuitable or even unhealthy for these conditions.  The Iyengar method is inclusive and has a systematic process to help all students do yoga no matter their conditions. 

What others say St Kilda Yoga School, and Iyengar yoga

"I have been going to sky's yoga now for a little over 3 years. There's always a lovely warn atmosphere and the teachers are always very friendly. Their experience and insight have helped me improve my practice over time. I always feel amazing, energised and bright after I come out of every class. The benefits of the practice to my mental and physical health are incredible."

Jen Simons
"I have been going to SKYS since 2009 after a series of chiropractor sessions for my twisted pelvis. 
I particularly chose Iyengar yoga because of its focus on proper alignment.
And I thought doing an active exercise such as yoga would be much better than passive treatment such as chiro adjustments.
I found the teachers are very knowledgeable and very passionate about yoga.
I could feel the difference in my body if I miss a class. I cannot imagine myself not doing yoga."
 
Daniel Setiawan
"I have been practising IYENGAR Yoga with SKYS for over four years.  As a mature person, and a latecomer to yoga, I have found the practice invaluable to me on all physical, mental and philosophical levels.  It is suited to all ages and its success is due to the mindful guidance and the integrity of the institution's trained teachers.
