Learn yoga with us
At Yoga Mandir, we believe yoga is about developing a practice based on strong foundations. Our highly trained teachers deliver detailed instruction with the clarity and compassion that can only come from those who practice. Experience has value.
To become an Iyengar yoga teacher requires that you have developed as a student of yoga for a minimum of 3 years and then undergo a rigorous training for a further three years before sitting an assessment by an independent panel of assessors at the national level. Beyond this, teachers sit higher levels of certification by working alongside senior teachers in a mentoring relationship. This lineage-based system of learning ensures that teachers are systematic, accountable, and authentic.
Yoga Mandir’s system of learning provides a pathway that guides students with different levels of experience in their individual development. The use of props and modifications helps students to work to their own capacity and deal with injuries or other limitations. We see yoga as a lifelong practice.

Our hour-long Asana classes are delivered at 3 levels
Asana 1. Body & breath. Hour-long classes with a focus on body & breath to bring a steadiness within.
Asana 2. Body, breath & focus. These sessions require a greater focus to deliver precision in the practice.
Asana 3. Body, breath & mind. With application & precision comes integration of body, breath & mind
Our ongoing Foundations classes have a focus on standing poses, seated twists and basic forward bends along with the principles underpinning yoga. Get moving, free the body and remove those aches and pains. It’s a practice of connecting body, breath and mind.
Join the Developing classes where we expand the range of asana detail and string them into longer sequences to develop greater concentration and attention.
Now that you have a practice you’ve established the skills and judgement to adjust your own practice to meet life’s changing demands.
This level of classes is for ongoing students who practice Iyengar Yoga regularly. Taken by our senior teacher Alan Goode these sessions are not recommended for casual attendance and the practice is focused. Please check with the office before attending.
5. Slow paced
This level of classes uses simple sequences with a focus on integrating mind, body and breath.
