09 Sep New Iyengar Yoga Studio
Our iconic heritage church has been refurbished to offer a yoga class that might see you literally hanging from the walls.
Known for its use of props and acute focus on technique, Iyengar yoga is quite different from our regular Gwinganna yoga classes of Hatha, Yin, Vinyasa and Restorative.
You will see yoga mats set up with bolsters, blankets, blocks, special chairs and ropes hanging from the wall. Whilst you might be familiar with some of these props, their use in yoga actually originates from the Iyengar style which works to help students feel safe, supported and therefore more able to relax during yoga.
Iyengar Yoga offers a steady step by step approach to postures and breathing. It is excellent for rehabilitation and anyone with limitations in their movement.
Try it for yourself at our popular three night Yoga Retreat Sunday 8 - Wednesday 11 December 2019
