Iyengar Yoga classes at Christ Church Blackfriars Road

Iyengar Yoga is based on the correct alignment of the body.
It helps to build stamina and flexibility.

When the body is correctly aligned then there is balance in
both the mind and the body.

Classes are open to beginners and it is an extremely
beneficial practice to those suffering with back, neck,
shoulder problems etc and also for many other medical
conditions.
