Classes & Costs

Description of Classes

Level I: This class teaches the preliminaries of Iyengar Yoga. Basic standing poses are taught, simple sitting and twisting poses as well as an introduction to inversions. The poses and actions that are taught in a Level I class prepare the body for the more challenging poses that are taught in Level II classes. The Level I class is suitable if you are new to Iyengar Yoga. 

Prerequisite: there is no prerequisite for attending Level I class. Another option if you are new to Iyengar Yoga, is to attend an eight lesson “Introductory Iyengar Yoga Course”.

Level I/II: The Level I/II class is suitable for students who have some previous Yoga experience or who have attended some Level I classes. The preliminary poses of Iyengar Yoga are taught as well as some of the poses from Level II. Level I/II is a good class to attend if you are progressing from Level I to Level II.

Level I/II in 60: This is a 60 minutes condensed Level I/II class and is suitable for experienced Level I students.

Level II: This general Iyengar Yoga class builds upon the Level I training. A wider range of poses is introduced. The Level II class teaches poses that will help the yoga practitioner develop a good grounding in Yoga practice. A range of poses are covered in this class over a cycle of 4-5 weeks including standing poses, forward extensions, elementary backward extensions and inversions such as Salamba Sirsasana (Headstand) and Salamba Sarvangasana (Shoulder Stand). 

Prerequisite: before attending Level II classes, students should be experienced in practicing the poses taught in Level I classes.

LeveI II/III in 60: This is a 60 minutes condensed Level II/III class and is suitable for experienced Level II students and above.

Level III: After a solid understanding of the Level II poses is acquired, and students have committed to regular practice, they move on to Level III. Here, students are working at an Intermediate level and require progressively greater knowledge of the poses and the capacity to maintain them. At this level students are encouraged to maintain a regular home practice. 

Prerequisite: before attending Level III classes, students should be experienced in practicing the poses taught in Level II classes.

Led Practice: Level III: Experienced Iyengar Yoga students and teachers are invited to attend this led practice which we run once-a-month. The sequence is led by the teacher. 

Prerequisite: open to students who regularly attend Level III classes.

Level IV:  This class is for experienced Iyengar Yoga students and teachers of Iyengar Yoga. Students should have an established home practice. Permission is required before attending Level IV classes. 

Prerequisite: permission is required before attending Level IV classes.

Pranayama: This class explores the body's subtle energy, called "prana", through various breathing practices and techniques. Pranayama practice develops a smooth relaxed breath, improves heart function and reduces stress. Pranayama is offered as a specialty class from time to time and is also taught in the curriculum of Level II and Level III classes.

Led Practice: Pranayama: This is a Pranayama led practice. The practice will be conducted over a period of 60 minutes. At the beginning of the practice a brief explanation of the Pranayama methods chosen for that day will be given. Then, those types of Pranayama will be practiced. Pranayama explores the body's subtle energy, called "prana", through various breathing practices and techniques. 

Prerequisite: as this is a led practice a not a class we recommend that students have some prior experience with Pranayama before attending the led practice. 

Cost: $120

Restorative Yoga: Constant stress has a negative effect on the human body. In this class, restorative Yoga poses are taught to induce relaxation and strengthen the immune state. In addition, restorative Yoga poses can regulate body functions and calm the mind. As well as a regular 90-minute class, we also offer a two-hour Restorative Yoga class once a month.

There are no prerequisites for attending this class.

Self Practice Time: Once-a-month we run a self practice session. During this time students of the centre are invited to come along and do their own, personal practice amongst fellow students. Students of all levels are welcome as each student will work on their own practice. We will provide some practice sheets if you are not sure where to start.

The Self Practice Time is a 2-hour time slot. Come for part of that time or all of that time. 

Prerequisite: students attending must have a current package with the Iyengar Yoga Centre of Hong Kong. 

Cost: $50 

Specific Needs: The Specific Needs class is an opportunity for students with injuries, ailments or special conditions to practice Iyengar Yoga with a personalised yoga sequence under the supervision of a teacher. It is suitable for students who have a condition that precludes them from attending the regular classes. This class is suitable for students who are pregnant.

Props will be used to assist the student and help them practice safely. Over time, the senior teacher will change the sequence according to the progress of the student. 

A personalised sequence can be created for a range of muscoloskeletal problems such as shoulder pain, frozen shoulder, knee pain or back issues. Students with other health challenges, including hypertension, diabetes, some neurological issues (multiple sclerosis, chronic fatigue syndrome) can also practice in this environment. 

As each student's needs are unique, please call the centre to discuss your needs. 

Yoga for Children: In a child-friendly and informal environment, children between 7-12 years of age can learn and appreciate yoga the Iyengar way. The classes are playful, challenging, sportive (but not competitive) and relaxing! One-hour class prices apply. 

Prerequisite: for 7-12 years old. 

Yoga for a Healthy Back: The emphasis in this class is on strengthening the back and increasing flexibility. The class focuses on the shoulders, neck and the back. Everyone is welcome.

Yoga For Pregnancy: Students who are pregnant are invited to attend the "Specific Needs" class. A program will be tailored for a pregnant student with poses to benefit the woman during her pregnancy. Poses are taught that strengthen the body appropriately without straining or over exerting the student. Relaxation techniques that are important to a comfortable pregnancy are also taught. Registration is essential for this class. Please contact us.

Prerequisites: women should have completed the first trimester of pregnancy before attending. First time students should contact the centre before attending.

Yoga for Teenagers: This is a class for teenagers (13-19 years old). Yoga can help bring stability and a clear mind to young adults who are typically coping with unique challenges and stresses. One-hour class prices apply. 

Prerequisite: for 13-19 years old. 

Private & Semi-Private Consultations
 

Private Consultations: Private consultations are available if a student is working with an injury, a medical condition or needs specific help with a particular area of their practice. In the private consultation some specific advice can be given to the student. Mostly, students are encouraged to do their primary study in a class environment. In the Iyengar method the practice can be tailored for the different needs of students within the class environment.

From time to time, students enquire about starting their Yoga practice by taking private classes. Rather than starting the practice of Yoga with private lessons, we recommend that new students take an Introductory Iyengar Yoga Course.

Semi-Private Classes: Semi-private classes are available for small groups of students (from 2 - 5 students). If you are interested in arranging a semi-private class, please contact us.
