Yoga instructor Brigette


Both are drawn to Iyengar yoga in which the focus is initially on the physical and practical aspects of yoga. With Iyengar’s precision, detail and alignment in the asanas injury is prevented. You learn to understand and get to know your body better feeling the strength and flexibility unfold as you continue to practice. 
The physical practice of Yoga leads to quietening the mind and stabilising emotions.  Yoga helps to keep your work/life balance in check.
