- Intensive week: Students attend morning and evening (7.00-8.15am & 5.45-7.00pm) for 5 consecutive days. There will be no Introductory Intensive in Term 4. Our next Introductory Intensive will be held in January 2020.
Yoga is a self study, a Reflective practice. Learning Yoga is the journey of learning to practice. The key methods of practice within Iyengar Yoga, include technique, timings, sequence and repetition. During the Introductory Course, these methods are introduced within the asanas (physical postures). Students begin to explore the interplay of body, mind and breath.
Regular attendance will increase body awareness, flexibility, strength and concentration. Students develop the skills and knowledge to commence a practice of yoga.
In the beginning the emphasis is on the techniques of asana so that students learn how to perform asanas safely and correctly. Over time students deepen their understanding of why as well as how to practice yoga so that it can be sustained over a lifetime regardless of illness, injury, and major life events.
After completion of this entry level program students enrol in the Foundation level of the Practitioner programs. For more information about Iyengar Yoga, please see our FAQs.
