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 for the teaching of dance, or judo, for example. The profession is not regulated, so that anyone can self-proclaim yoga teacher, by purely commercial motivation, because it is again popular, through the American influence and fitness clubs and perspiration sessions, borrowing more or less some yoga techniques.
Our Iyengar Yoga classes last from 1h30 to 2h depending on the level. Yoga, according to the teachings of B.K.S. Iyengar is a rigorous method, based on the development of its sensitivity and perceptions of the postural alignment, directional direction and energy 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. Courses are divided according to 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 center.
