IYENGAR YOGA CLASSES

If you want to take yoga classes, you will quickly discover that the offer is plethoric. Indeed, in France, there is no official national “diploma” as there is for the teaching of dance, or judo, for example. The profession is not regulated, so anyone can call themselves a yoga teacher, as it has become popular again, via American influence and fitness clubs, borrowing more or less certain yoga techniques and under various new names.

“Our Iyengar Yoga classes last from 1h30 to 2h depending on the level. Yoga, traditional or also called Hatha-Yoga, according to the teachings of B.K.S. Iyengar is a rigorous method, based on the development of one’s sensitivity and perceptions of postural alignment, sense of direction and the energetic flow of the asana. It sometimes uses supports, to allow beginners to approach and have a better understanding of asanas, as well as to propose therapeutic applications and adaptations and also to allow everyone to practice according to their possibilities and limitations. The courses are divided into different levels, beginners, intermediate and advanced. Specific courses for special cases are also taught separately.

The Iyengar Yoga Center of Marseille, as a non-profit association, was created in 1996 by Stéphane Lalo, with the permission and encouragement of B.K.S. Iyengar and is accredited by Ramamani Iyengar Yoga Institute Memorial PUNE to represent and disseminate his teaching. It is also a teacher training centre since 2007 (see chapter on training).
