Savasana & Pranayama (S&P)
L1B or 3 months of Gentle Yoga is a prerequisite. The S&P classes follow a predetermined syllabus. The first few classes focus only on Savasana with correct alignment and understanding the breath. Preparatory breathing techniques for Pranayama like Ujjayi 1, 2 and 3 in different restorative asanas are introduced gradually.

It is a slow but very effective process of getting the body and breath ready for higher forms of Pranayama without any side effects. These classes are open for all age groups.

Advice and Cautions for S&P classes
• Wear comfortable unrestrictive clothing and bare feet to practise. Shorts and a T-shirt are best. It’s best if your knees and ankles can be seen.
• Allow four hours after a main meal or one hour after a light snack before class.
• If you are menstruating certain asanas are not suitable so please consult the teacher at the beginning of the class.
• Some of our classes are not suitable for pregnant women or for people with certain medical conditions. If you think that this might apply to you it is essential that you contact us for advice on yoga classes that would best suit your needs.
• If your medical condition changes you must inform us in advance of class.

Guide to understanding “do we need Props in Yoga practice”?
Props are not mandatory and students can do independent asanas without any props. But the benefits of props cannot be ignored. Everybody is different and props guide everyone to get the maximum benefits of the poses. Having your own yoga kit of Authentic Iyengar Yoga Props that are designed by Guruji BKS Iyengar in shape and size is recommended strongly and they certainly help accelerate and refine one’s practise.

Bricks – Bricks are recommended for novice practitioner who struggle to sit straight for short period of time. It is helpful to buy a brick with the right dimension and right material. Wooden brick is recommended to the foam ones.
Belts – Belts are helpful for senior citizens and students with injury to stay longer in a restorative pose and gain maximum benefits of the pose. Belt is a must have even in advanced level classes due to its various uses.
Chair- A yoga chair has the right dimension that helps to put any type of body in the correct asana without injury. It’s a great help for people to get into some difficult poses in a safe and easy manner.
Blankets – The blankets used for practise have a certain thickness and texture which help in yoga practise. The material of the blankets plays a vital role so the student doesn’t slip on sink in his asanas.
