The health benefits of yoga

The health benefits of regular yoga practise on the mind and body have been recognised for centuries. If you attend our Glasgow Southside Iyengar Yoga classes you will work the whole human system, not just some parts of your body as you may do in other forms of exercise, or other types of yoga. In our yoga classes we work to strength and lengthen all of your muscles, tendons and ligaments to keep the joints and the muscle healthy - i.e. strong and elastic. Iyengar Yoga also helps purify, detoxify and rejuvenate the internal organs as well as the respiratory, digestive, glandular and nervous systems. In short, in our Glasgow Iyengar Yoga classes you will help keep your body young, strong and supple, purify and detoxify your internal organs and calm your nervous system and your mind. This is achieved through the physical yoga postures, (yoga asanas) yogic breathing (pranayama) and meditation.

Iyengar Yoga

Iyengar yoga is one of the most respected and well known types of yoga in the world. There are almost 1000 Iyengar Yoga teachers in the U.K. alone. The Iyengar system has spread from Pune, India, around the world. Iyengar Yoga teachers have to complete at least 2 years of rigorous training, as well as having practiced Iyengar Yoga regularly for at least 5 years with a qualified Iyengar Yoga teacher and pass tightly regulated exams before they can teach members of the public. They also have to participate in regular Professional Development training, run by the I.Y. (U.K.) to keep their teaching practice up to date with new techniques and to continue their learning as an Iyengar Yoga teacher.
