Unley Yoga

Iyengar is the style of yoga taught at Unley Yoga.

It is a dynamic, physical & rejuvenating practice.
Suitable for everyone regardless of fitness, flexibility or age.

Caroline Murphy is a Certified Iyengar Yoga Teacher

Consistent, regular practice of Iyengar Yoga will improve your physical health and sense of well being, it will help you feel calm, less stressed and help you cope with the ups and downs of your everyday life.

Iyengar Yoga is distinguished from other forms of yoga by careful attention to precision of alignment, the use of props (straps, blocks, bolsters) and specific sequencing and timing of asanas (poses) and pranayamas (breath work). Students are able to practice at their own level with no risk of injury.

Iyengar Yoga is an art, philosophy and science, and has well proven therapeutic value in relieving health problems.

When the body is awakened the mind too becomes steady and clear

— B.K.S Iyengar —
