Experienced Yoga Students

Yoga is described as an ‘ocean of lore.’

Deepen your understanding of yoga and never stop learning. Integrate mind, body and breath and learn to adapt your practice to the inevitable obstacles that arise. Those obstacles become our greatest teachers in fact. Skills can continue to evolve over years and decades.

Students from other methods are most welcome to come in and explore this multi-faceted, complex and rich method. Iyengar Yoga is a practice for life!

Led practice provides a pathway to move from being a student attending classes and receiving instructions, to developing one’s own practice. This is what lies at the heart of becoming a  yoga practitioner.

 LP is led by volunteering students and teacher trainees, who call the names of poses as they also do them. It is essential that you are attending classes and learning the poses that are practiced in this series. LP is not a class. There is no instruction. 

LP is only for students in Levels 2 or above at present.

Led Practice is free for students attending level 2 or 3 classes regularly 2 times or more per week. If you attend regularly one class per week the cost is $90

Bookings are absolutely essential and can only be made by emailing reception
