Pranayama classes with KATIE RUTHERFORD,

Sundays 10.30 am – 1 pm, 16th December 2018.

January 13th, February 17th and March 17th 2019.

Pranayama is the fourth limb of yoga and regular practice brings tremendous benefits to the mind and body. These classes are suitable for those who have been practicing asana for at least 18 months and are genuinely interested in deepening their pranayama practice.

We are so delighted that Katie has agreed to teach these classes – she has studied for many years with Rajiv and Swati Chanchani in Yog-Ganga in Dehradun and with Firooza Ali Rajvi at her retreats in Fife, as well as with Guruji, Geeta and Prashant in Pune. She has learnt from the very best!

We are delighted to welcome Nathalie back to Yoga Now after her popular workshop here last March. Nathalie is a Senior 2 Iyengar Yoga teacher with many years’ experience. She teaches regular classes in Hove and Bristol, and she has kindly agreed to offer a workshop open to less experienced students again – at least 18 months’ experience (you should be confident in Sarvangasana / Shoulder stand and at least learning Sirsasana / Headstand). This is an ideal opportunity to progress your practice. Nathalie visits the RIMYI in Pune regularly and her classes are encouraging and enlightening!

Led Practice sessions with Al Reid (and others)

Sundays 10 -11am, Jan 20th, Feb 24th, Mar 24th 2019.

Do you find it hard to practice at home? We want to help!
Yoga gets better the more you do it; it’s a practice and should be done regularly. We all know this but it can be hard to get in to the habit. So come along to these practice sessions to help you get started.
We provide the equipment, the space, the practice sequence and the company! One of our experienced teachers will guide you through the sequence, calling out the poses and doing them with you, so you can see what to do. We do not teach you however – you need to do the practice yourself. You get to experience each pose in near silence, being in the pose, undisturbed but not on your own. You get to keep the sequence so you can keep practicing it at home.

These sessions have been popular with those attending and we hope that in the not too distant future, we will be able to add Open Practice Sessions, where you come to do your own practice (whatever you choose) in the studio, like at RIMYI in Pune.

Pay at the studio, £5 per session.

National Iyengar Yoga Day – 100 poses for 100 years

Saturday 19th January, 10 – 1pm, free.

Lauriston Hall, 28 Lauriston St, Edinburgh EH3 9DJ

Come and help us celebrate the Centenary of the birth of Shri BKS Iyengar!
Events are happening all over the UK on this day, to celebrate 100 years since our Guruji’s birth. His book, Light on Yoga, 1966, was the first book on yoga of it’s kind and all modern yoga owes a debt to his dedication and brilliance.

We will do 100 poses in honour of the 100 years – alternative poses will be given for the more challenging poses, along with plenty of rests! Come and join us and bring your friends! Bring a mat if you have one.
