Michelle is a certified and licenced Iyengar Yoga Teacher (qualifiying in 2007) and Iyengar Yoga practitioner, trained and nurtured by local senior teachers and members of The Iyengar family since finding Yoga in 1998.
Iyengar Yoga is named so after Yogacharya Sri B.K.S. Iyengar of Pune, who developed a style of yoga which is attentive to correct alignment of the body. This form of practice is safe whilst improving your flexibilty and strength. Iyengar set the standard for his teachers and students and his textbooks on yoga are now classics.
Mr Iyengar wrote the first ever published books on yoga, an essential reference.
Light on Yoga
Iyengar Yoga goes beyond other styles of Yoga. It is immersed in the philosophy of The Yoga Sutras and this is the reason there is such an underpinning reference to the alignment of the asana’s (poses), therefore giving marvelous health benefits. Karl Jung explains my experience of the gift of B K S Iyengar’s teachings.
“One looks back with appreciation to the brilliant teachers, but with gratitude to those who touched our human feelings. The curriculum is so much necessary raw material, but warmth is the vital element for the growing plant and for the soul of the child.” Karl Jung
In class Michelle endeavours to continue to give students illuminations and help them see how amazing their bodies are.
