New ‘4 module’ course starting April 2019 – 5th to 9th April

About the Course

Iyengar Yoga is firmly rooted in the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali (an Indian sage who is believed to have lived around 200 bc). He wrote down the Yoga Sutras which had previously been passed on from Guru to teacher for thousands of years. These Yoga Sutras hold the teaching for finding a right way of living, leading towards peace and enlightenment. They are as relevant today as ever and during this course we will study the meanings of the Yoga Sutras and how we apply them to our lives.

This International course, run over two years, will guide you through the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali to bring understanding and meaning to this work. It is designed for teachers and students who are ready to explore these texts, with the aim of bringing philosophy into the yoga practice for all round development, as was originally intended. The course will also help in preparation for the philosophical aspects required in the Iyengar Yoga teaching system at all levels of assessment.

Each module will consist of philosophy lectures with Gitte Bechsgaard together with asana and pranayama practice with Sheila Haswell. For more detailed information about the content of the modules please follow this link.
