Further Study

Once students have been attending classes for a while, it is normal to want to learn more about the subject of Yoga. It is a deep subject. Mr Iyengar says that Yoga “is an art, a science and a philosophy.”

At the centre, as well as graded classes, we offer the following programs to deepen your study.

Self Practice Time
Power of Practice
Iyengar Yoga in Depth
Teacher Training

 

 

Self Practice Time

During Self Practice Time students of the centre are invited to come along and do their own personal practice of Iyengar Yoga amongst fellow students. Students of all levels are welcome as each student will work on their own practice in silence. We will provide some practice sheets if you are not sure where to start.

During the Self Practice time-slot, students can come for all or part of the allotted time. You decide how long you want to practice during the Self Practice Time slot. 

Self Practice Time is for the practice of Iyengar Yoga. Self Practice Time is not for the practice of other modalities.

Schedule:

Thursday 7:15am - 9:45am

Sundays 7:30am - 9:30am

 

Cost: $50

Prerequisites: Students attending must have a current class package with The Iyengar Yoga Centre of Hong Kong.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Power of Practice

The "Power of Practice" sessions are led by a teacher who set the sequence and timings of the pose. The teacher guides the group through the sequence without giving instruction. The emphasis is on practicing the poses in a quiet environment without instruction.
 

The “Power of Practice” gives students an experience practicing asana at home. The practice sessions are suitable for Level I/II students and above.
 

The “Power of Practice” is conducted every four months and is normally run for a five-day period, Monday to Friday from 7am - 8am.


Upcoming Dates For Power Of Practice

Iyengar Yoga in Depth

When you start to feel the multi-faceted benefits from the practice of Yoga, you may feel an urge to learn more about this ancient practice. You want to make it a more important part of your life. If you feel a spark has been ignited from your encounter with Yoga and you want to immerse yourself in the study — then you should enrol in Iyengar Yoga in Depth.

Iyengar Yoga in Depth is for you if:

  • you find yourself drawn to Yoga and particularly Iyengar Yoga.
  • you are inspired by the teachings of BKS Iyengar.
  • you are the type of student that comes to class regularly and prioritises coming to class over social engagements.
  • you are ready to make a commitment to learning more. This commitment includes starting a home practice (or improving your home practice if you already have one).
  • you have ceased “shopping around” (trying different activities here and there) and have found that Iyengar Yoga is a useful tool in your life.

The deeper practice of Yoga comes about when you have a self practice of Yoga. A self practice multiplies the benefits that one is already receiving from coming to classes. A large component of Iyengar Yoga in Depth is to support students to develop a self practice of Yoga. When you enrol in Iyengar Yoga in depth you undertake a relationship with the self practice of Yoga.

Iyengar Yoga in Depth consists of:

  • 10 Discussion Meetings
  • 10 Asana Intensive Meetings
  • 10 Timed Practices Meetings
  • 10 Exploring Asana Meetings
  • 3 Power of Practice Meetings

You are required to attend 8 classes (Level I/II, Level II or Level III) in one time slot per term (one term is three months). At the beginning of each term, you elect which time slot to attend. It can be with any teacher.

You will receive:

  • a suggested monthly practice sequence for you to practice at home.
  • a package of 8 x 90 minute classes (every three months) used to attend your elected class (Level I/II, Level II or Level III)
  • enrolment in 3 “Power of Practices”
  • 3 x Self Practice Time tokens per term


Duration: September 2017 to September 2018

Pre-requisite: This program is open to students who have attended a minimum of 40 classes with The Iyengar Yoga Centre of Hong Kong and are continuing regular students of the centre.
