The Iyengar Yoga Center of Marseille, as an non-profit organization , Association DIPIKA , was established in 1996 by Stéphane Lalo, with the permission and encouragements of B.K.S. Iyengar and is approved by the Ramamani Iyengar Memorial Yoga Institute in PUNE to represent and spread his teachings. It is also a center trainer of teachers.
The classes last from 1:30 to 2 hours depending on the level. This schoolof Yoga, according to the method of B.K.S. Iyengar is a rigorous yoga, based on postural alignment and sense of direction and sequencing of the asanas. We sometimes do use props, thereby allowing some students with difficulties to approach and to have a better understanding of the asanas as also to be able to offer applications and therapeuthic adaptations allowing everyone to practice according to their possibilities and physical capacities.
Classes are divided by levels , beginners , intermediate and advanced . Specific courses for special cases , pregnancy , seniors are also taught separately.
