Classes are taught by Advanced, Senior, Intermediate and Introductory teachers. All the teachers at the Institute are qualified, current members of the IYA(UK).
“I believe yoga has transformed my life in the most positive way. BKS Iyengar was the yoga genius whose method enabled yoga to be accessible to all – myself included. It is my hope to introduce students to yoga, so that they can study at the level which suits and benefits them.”
Elaine Spraggett found Iyengar Yoga, and Jayne Orton, in 1996. Having previously done other forms of yoga, this was a revelation, and she has studied with Jayne ever since. Elaine qualified as an Iyengar teacher in 2002 and has since gone on and taken further training and qualified as an Intermediate Junior level 1 teacher in March 2017. Elaine is fascinated by Iyengar yoga where the learning never ends and the groins continue to open! The more she studies, the more there is to know – and the depth of yoga is gradually revealed.
It’s been a privilege to be taught be some of the foremost Iyengar yoga teachers in the world, and to enjoy two trips to Pune, attending classes taught by the Iyengar family.
