Who is YI for?
The YI is for anyone with a minimum of two to three years of regular yoga practise in Iyengar yoga or other yoga disciplines, wishing to expand their knowledge and immerse themselves in a structured and progressive learning course. A regular practice in Sirsasana & Sarvangasana is also advised (Headstand & Shoulderstand free standing or with wall support is ok). The YI course is not suitable for absolute beginners.
Why study Yoga?
Practising yoga creates opportunities for us to learn about ourselves, it supports us in our daily lives and in a class, workshop or intensive environment, bringing together people from all walks of life. Studying Iyengar yoga develops and deepens your experience of yoga practise; transforming knowledge into understanding. Yoga Jivana’s courses can lead yoga students towards becoming self-reliant yogis & yoginis (yoga practitioners). Our courses and workshops are 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.
