iYoga Glasgow is a community of Iyengar teachers and practitioners whose purpose is to share and promote the teachings of B.K.S. Iyengar.
We are a member institute of Iyengar Yoga (UK) and a not-for-profit organisation.

Beginners

We believe that yoga is for everyone, regardless of age, ability and background.
Our teachers are able to recommend ways of working to suit your individual abilities.

If you have never been to a yoga class before; no problem – below is some information to help you know what to expect.

Whether you are bendy of stiff, your teacher will help you to work in asana (yoga postures) within your capabilities.
Equipment such as foam blocks and belts are used to help students learn control, develop flexibility and gain strength.

If possible, it is best to start with a short introductory course where you will be taught the basics before joining a beginner’s class.
Please go to the [Classes] Page for details.

Health.
Yoga can help with many minor, everyday aches and pains, but if you are aware of any medical condition which might affect you ability to practice, please consult your doctor before you start classes.
When you attend a class for the first time, please arrive early enough to have a confidential talk about any health issues with your teacher before the class begins.

If you are pregnant it is important to note that starting Iyengar Yoga is not recommended.
If you become pregnant, it is important to tell your teacher straight away.

What to wear
No special clothing is required, but what you wear should allow freedom of movement; particularly in the hips and shoulders.
T shirts and leggings or shorts are ideal.
Yoga is usually practiced in bare feet.

When to eat
It always feels best to practice on an empty stomach.
For your comfort, allow a gap of 3 to 4 hours after a full meal or 2 hours after a light one.
Please leave food and drink outside the practice space.

Any other questions? Please get in touch.

We look forward to seeing you soon.
