What is Iyengar Yoga?
Iyengar Yoga is a form of yoga based on traditional Hatha yoga postures with an emphasis on precision and alignment. Props are used to assist with the correct alignment during postures.

THE BENEFITS

THE STUDIO
Based in the heart of Marrickville, MYC is run in a spacious studio up a short flight of stairs on Marrickville Road.
Easily accessible, the train station is just a 10 minute walk, buses frequent Marrickville Road and street parking is easy enough to find.The large open windows facing Marrickville Road let in plenty of natural light and a cool breeze. Small, open shelving is available to store belongings during class and there are 2 change rooms if you plan to change at the studio.


THE TEACHERS
The teachers are friendly and very supportive, always eager to improve students practice. Full classes often have 2 teachers to ensure everyone can have corrections and assistance.

  1. Hubby and I do yoga at home. I’ve not done this style. We are old so we are careful to do things correctly. Yoga is great exercise.

    Have a fabulous day. 🙂

  2. This sounds like a great place to try this type of yoga. I love the quote they use outside. Yoga does wonders for me but I have not tried Iyengar .

  3. That looks wonderful! I get two free yoga classes a week with my gym membership but don’t get out of best soon enough (night owl here) I need to start going! I like the idea of this one being very guided, it’s easy to get into poses that go to far and hurt you.
