Why join a Yoga Immersion Course

Practising Yoga creates an opportunity for us to learn about ourself.  The practice will give us tools to support ourselves in our daily life.  Studying Iyengar yoga develops and deepens your experience of yoga practise; transforming knowledge into understanding.

A Yoga Immersion course can lead yoga students towards becoming self-reliant yogis & yoginis (yoga practitioners). This course is designed as a perfect way to honour the desire to experience the art & science of yoga more deeply, regardless of where the path may lead. We invite you to join us in an exploration of this profoundly transformative art & science that is YOGA.

This intensive will be a progressive learning experience. It is a structured course that will guide in furthering the understanding of yoga asanas and the fundamentals of yogic philosophy. The emphasis is on ‘how to do’ and ‘how to practise’ Iyengar Yoga:

Practise – Abhyasa & Vairaghya     Method – Yogasana    Philosophy – Darshana

Day One:  6pm - 8pm - Orientation/Overview & Restorative Practice
