Yoga is first and foremost a spiritual path. However, people often come to it for a variety of practical reasons: insomnia, aching backs, stiff legs, anxiety. In the process of curing these issues they experience the transformative power of yoga which brings a sense of profound well-being.

Yoga works every fibre of the body; the joints, organs, glands, circulation, skin and nerves. It promotes strength, suppleness and vitality.

As well as a sense of internal harmony and well-being, it reduces stress and increases energy levels and powers of concentration.

Yoga can be adapted for all ages and levels of fitness and health to obtain maximum benefit from the asanas according to their needs.


B.K.S. Iyengar was named by Time magazine as “one of the 100 most influential people in the world,” and is widely regarded as the foremost living yoga teacher. His approach develops self-awareness through precision in alignment and movement and attention to the subtle relationship between body, breath, mind, and spirit.

Iyengar’s thorough study, understanding and mastery of yoga are unrivalled in modern times. Having taught in five continents, he has won worldwide respect and recognition for his achievements and has made Yoga accessible and relevant to people everywhere, no matter what their physical or mental ability.

He continues to set the standard for his teachers and students while his textbooks on yoga have become classics. He is based at and runs the Ramamani Iyengar Memorial Yoga Institute in Pune, India, where his daughter Smt. Geeta and son Sri Prashant Iyengar are also directors. There are over 2000 qualified Iyengar yoga teachers in the world in over 40 countries with over 180 Iyengar yoga associations worldwide.

Anni, age 23, student

I was diagnosed with a herniated disc in August 2014 when I fell on my lower back whilst rushing down the stairs. The orthopedic surgeon I saw told me that this was an extremely serious injury, that I most likely needed a surgery and that I wouldn't be able to undertake any further sports activities, such as skiing or dance. I was prescribed pain killers, Vitamin B. Eventually I was not able to move and had to lie in bed for 2 weeks and all of this just before my MA degree started in London.

Lorraine McConnon was recommended for 121 remedial yoga classes and I felt I had to try every option as the prognosis was so negative. I could barely move; my leg and my lower right hip were hurting a lot. Lorraine gave me a lot of homework and I began to do the exercises every single day, after the 4th session the pain disappeared almost completely. I also realized that although my pain had disappeared I still was very sensitive and had to maintain doing the yoga exercise on a regular basis. The lesson I have learned, thanks to Lorraine, is that through the disciplinary connection with one's body and a good yoga plan, one can remove such serious injury.
