General information

Iyengar Yoga classes are suitable for all ages and levels of fitness – you do not have to be flexible to practise yoga. You must however inform me of any injuries or medical conditions prior to starting a class. Please do not have a large meal before a class nor drink immediately before (or during!) a class.

A class will involve a variety of different postures – standing, sitting, inverted and relaxing. Iyengar Yoga is a strong exercise but emphasis is placed on precision and safety.

Simple props are used such as blocks and belts to help one achieve certain postures. The class is performed with bare feet and clothing that does not impede movement is recommended. The Charlbury Yoga Studio is fully equipped so you do not need to bring a mat or any props with you. Changing facilities are limited so it is best to come dressed prepared for the class.
