General Questions or do you have Questions about IYENGAR YOGA?



 I'm new to yoga. Which class is recommended for me?

INTRODUCTORY YOGA COURSE is recommended for those who are new to yoga or new to IYENGAR Yoga. This is a 10-weeks program which lays a strong foundation physically and mentally to continue your yoga practice.  If this schedule is not convenient, you may start at Level I or General classes.

 How often should I attend classes?

As many classes as possible.  At least twice a week.  Apart from classes,  it is necessary to practise at home on a regular basis in order to progress.

 Do I need to bring my own yoga mat and props?

No, yoga mats and all props are provided. But you're welcome to use your own yoga mat.

  What should I wear?

Your yoga attire should allow you to move freely.  Don't wear anything which is too tight or too loose.  It is important that the teacher and you should see your knees and feet.   Most people wear shorts or leggings and tee shirt.

 I have back pain, knee pain, injury or other health problems.
Can I get any help from yoga?

Many students are practising yoga to take care of their joint pains like knee or back or shoulderache. Before the class begins,  please inform your teacher of any  physical injuries or health problems.  If your condition is serious,  our specialised remedial class will be more appropriate.  Please consult with our teachers  for more information.

 I'm pregnant. Can I still practice yoga?

Yes.  But if you've never done yoga before,  you should wait until  the 14 th week of pregnancy and attend a prenatal class.  You may join at any time up to the 28th week of pregnancy.  Only students with iyengar yoga experience may continue after the 28 th week
