About Yoga Weekend & 5-Day Courses

The Yoga Weekend Classes and 5-Day Yoga Courses immerse the participant into the essence of Yoga, teaching both its philosophical as well as practical aspects.

Sharat Arora, Indian Yoga Master, designed the Course program using a scientific approach and a subtlety of awareness that is often overlooked in other forms of Yoga. During his 42 years of experience and research in the field, he developed – and still continues to develop – a unique approach to teaching the foundations of Yoga practice in a way that is accessible to all people regardless of age or fitness.

Iyengar Yoga Courses at the HIYC

At the Himalayan Iyengar Yoga Centre we practise and teach a unique evolution of Iyengar Yoga as discovered and developed by our Master Teacher Sharat Arora. Because of the differences of this style of Yoga with other types of Hatha and Classical Iyengar Yoga, all students coming to the HIYC for the first time must start with a 3 or 5-Day Introductory Course i.e. 5-Day Yoga Course or Yoga Weekend Course. This applies to everyone, regardless of his or her previous Yoga experience and ability.
