Build Strength and Flexiblity

Yoga develops strength, flexibility and stamina. The sequencing of the poses build strength and ease of movement, increase general vitality, and improve circulation, coordination and balance. Imbalances in the physical posture are corrected over time as the correct alignment is learnt.

Boost Energy and Increase Vitality

Energy levels are increased through the practice of yoga. The poses work both externally on the physical body and energetically on the internal body. The physical poses rejuvenate and energise the body and the mind.

Reduce Stress and Increase Relaxation

Yoga is a powerful tool to help manage the stress and tensions of modern day life. Good sequencing of the poses balances the sympathetic nervous system creating a feeling of calm. Yoga is mindfulness in action, full attention is demanded during a class through which the mind is fully absorbed in the present moment.

Wisdom and Self Appreciation

Yoga provides tools and practices for discriminating what is really core to our being and what are the more superficial and transitory aspects of our lives. Through skillful practice we can increase our comfort in life and gain a larger perspective, putting our day-to-day trials and tribulations into the perspective.

Inner Peace and Serenity

Yoga promotes a deep sense of inner peace and calm. The deep relaxation allows the internal landscape of our minds to declutter and create space. This process promotes a deep sense of well being.

Welcome

A warm welcome to my website, I teach Iyengar Yoga in Burley in  Wharfedale, Menston, Horsforth and the surrounding areas of Leeds and Bradford. I’m an experienced teacher and you will find my classes friendly and supportive. I look forward to welcoming you soon.

Iyengar Yoga is based on the teachings of the yoga master B.K.S. Iyengar, author of many books including the classic yoga treatise Light on Yoga.

Iyengar Yoga, one of the world’s most widely-practiced forms, emphasizes correct alignment of all parts of the body within each yoga pose. This precision builds strength and stamina, balance and flexibility, and a new sense of well being. Achieving meditation in action, students learn to exist fully and vibrantly in the present moment.
