Our Iyengar Yoga School
Within Infuse Health is an Iyengar Yoga School. It follows, a traditional style of yoga, named after BKS Iyengar, who wanted yoga to be accessible to everyone, regardless of their age or ability. His aim was to share the purpose of yoga; to unite the body, mind and spirit for health and wellbeing.
In this system, the emphasis is on detail, precision and alignment of each asana (pose) and pranayama (breath control) to create body awareness and movement with ease. Each asana can be modified with props, like blankets, blocks and belts to accommodate your fitness or ability level. Poses are practised to allow you to relax, balance and breathe in each one. They are grouped in specific sequences to achieve the optimal benefit of strength, flexibility, balance and self study.
With regular practice, Iyengar Yoga gives you confidence in your body’s functionality. It also teaches you to stop, breathe, and listen to your body, practise being in the moment and reflect. These practises can help increase your clarity, calmness, stress resistance, sleep quality and longevity.
Our Iyengar Yoga School offers highly skilled teaching and class options to cover a range of abilities, ages and expertise. All classes are capped to allow our Certified Iyengar Yoga teachers to give you one-on-one attention whenever necessary to develop your practice. With more than 50 years of combined experience being students of Iyengar Yoga, they can relate to what arises throughout your practice.
