Iyengar Yoga allows you to work at your own level to improve your flexibility, strength and general health. It is not competitive, and postures can be adapted with props to assist extension and increase mobility. To reduce the risk of injury, never force or strain yourself during poses. Menstruating women should not do inverted poses, strong backbends or reverse standing poses. Pregnant women should ask for specific advice. Those with special health considerations should consult their medical practitioner before performing any exercise.
If you are receiving treatment from a medical practitioner, have recently had surgery or a serious accident or illness, or are on medication, please check with the teacher whether this class is suitable for your condition. It is inappropriate for students suffering from certain medical conditions, or new students who are pregnant, to attend a yoga class held by a teacher holding only the Introductory teaching certificate of the IYA (UK).
The teacher cannot be held responsible for any injury incurred during the class, or any problem arising as a result of a medical condition.
We believe that everyone should have access to yoga classes, regardless of their wealth. For that reason we offer concessionary prices to those that really need them. It’s possible to come to classes at Yogawest for just £7 a class if you buy a 12-class pass.
We offer guidelines for concessions and trust that they are accessed by people who need them. They are available for full-time students supported by a student loan, those unemployed on benefits and wholly supported by state benefits. Concessions are not always valid for all classes, and you will find the latest information here:
Currently concessions are valid for all our timetabled classes. Concessions are not valid for courses as we require minimum numbers booked on to ensure they can run.
