Iyengar Yoga Glasgow
Yoga is like a candle which, once lit, can never be extinguished …
Iyengar Yoga Glasgow offers a variety of classes throughout the city and the West of Scotland to suit every ability. Whether you’re completely new to yoga, are an experienced student, or have a basic practice and feel ready to take it forward, we have a fully qualified teacher and a class that will meet your requirements.
An iYoga Glasgow class takes an holistic approach to yoga, using a combination of precise physical postures (asanas) and breathing (pranayama) to balance body and mind. It’s a challenging, but not competitive, practice which emphasises the alignment of the body, while still taking into account each practitioner’s individual needs. Yoga is beneficial for people of all ages, regardless of their physical condition. It increases flexibility, builds stamina and strength, and cultivates calmness and stability of the mind.
It is a practice which both relaxes and energises, providing an unshakeable foundation for physical and mental wellbeing.
Choosing your class through iYoga Glasgow means you will be in safe hands. All our teachers are certificated by Iyengar Yoga (UK) and regularly attend Professional Development Days to ensure their teaching remains at the highest standard and that their practice is being constantly updated and refreshed. They will have been trained over several years and have a comprehensive knowledge of the history and philosophy of yoga, and of anatomy and first aid.
Iyengar Yoga has been developed by B.K.S. Iyengar, still practising up until his death at the age of 95 in Pune, India; where he founded the Ramamani Iyengar Memorial Institute. He has been listed by Time Magazine as one of the most influential 100 people in the world. Yoga is an ancient, and therefore tried and tested, system of personal development and Mr Iyengar’s system is based on the 1,700 year old teachings of the guru Patanjali.
