Yoga Workshops

Yoga workshops are a chance to work more deeply on your practice. They are usually longer than regular classes so you have time to explore postures in more detail and focus on specific teaching points.

Please note that our yoga workshops are generally unsuitable if you’re menstruating. If you have an injury or medical condition, please consult the office or the yoga workshop teacher before booking.

In addition to workshops held at Maida Vale you can find information about Iyengar events across the South East here >
