There's no need to be super flexible or strong at this stage - our yoga classes are designed to guide you through a range of postures with correction and good understanding. Our students find that with greater strength and flexibility the whole body functions more efficiently, alleviating general aches and pains.
Our classes also focus on Yoga breathing exercises called pranayama. These help to reduce stress and tension, and to relax your central nervous system, enabling you to cope better with life's challenges by developing new energy.
For those of you who are keen athletes, yoga is a good balancing tool. It not only elongates shortened and fatiqued muscles, it is also an excellent way to gain mental focus and to prevent or recover from injury.
Following 4 operations on my left knee after a serious injury playing football, it was found that my left leg was now shorter than my right leg. As a result, normal walking movement twisted my hips and resulted in constant lower back pain. I had to wear an insert in my left shoe with a 9mm platform to rectify the situation.
Within 6 months of taking up Iyengar Yoga my insert platform was reduced to 3mm. With a continual improvement, it is likely that at some point in the future I will not have to wear an insert at all.
