Iyengar yoga is named after B.K.S. Iyengar. Mr Iyengar, or “Guruji” to his followers, spread his knowledge and passion for yoga around the world until his death in August 2014. Iyengar yoga emphasizes precision and alignment to integrate the body, mind and breath. Whether you’re new to yoga or looking to deepen your practice, Iyengar yoga has much for you to explore. Iyengar developed the use of props such as bricks, straps, blankets and bolsters, to help students attain poses or ‘asanas’ safely.
Jayne has practised yoga since she was a teen. She loves the balance it brings to her life, complementing her active lifestyle and the sports she practices. Yoga encourages a full range of motion, better balance and alignment, helping prevent injury. Wherever she goes she takes classes and finds great local instructors. Since discovering Iyengar yoga 20 years ago, she has studied in India with the Iyengar family twice, and has taken workshops with many well-known Iyengar teachers from all over the world. Her aim is to distill the best of her experience into her teaching to bring energy and balance to her classes.
