Iyengar Yoga North County has a free yoga class each month on the first Saturday of each month. This introductory yoga class is free for students new to the Center. It provides an opportunity to see the studio and meet the staff. If you are experienced and have not done Iyengar yoga before, it gives you a chance to experience the depth and precision of the teaching method. Beginners are welcome to join as well.
Iyengar yoga focuses on the body’s alignment in the pose so you receive very detailed instructions about how to do the yoga asana (pose) correctly. Whether you are a beginner or are looking for advanced teachers, you will find that Iyengar yoga can meet your needs.
Iyengar yoga teachers participate in 1,000 hour training programs to receive certification at the Intro level. Many travel to India to study with the Iyengar family in Pune, in addition to attending on-going training and workshops with senior Iyengar teachers here in the States.
BKS Iyengar wrote the book, Light on Yoga, back in the late 60’s and it has become the yoga ‘bible’ for practitioners all over the world. At almost 95, he still practices and teaches yoga every day. Carolyn Belko, the Center’s director, has studied with Mr. Iyengar numerous times and received her Senior level certification from him.
