About the Course

The 5-Day Yoga Courses and Weekend 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.

These Iyengar Yoga Courses equip the practitioner with a complete Iyengar Yoga Practice with standing poses, twists, forward bends, back bends, inversions and relaxations. Students learn everything that is needed to maintain a regular self-practice independently.

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.

Returning/Continuing Students Course: After successfully completing the full 5-Day Introductory Yoga Course, students who wish to continue their Yoga training at the HIYC start the classes for the continuing students. In the Returning Students’ Yoga Classes you will be guided into a greater and subtler understanding of the postures as well as learning new Yoga Asanas. Students can sign up for the full 5 days or treat these classes like drop-ins.

The Yoga Classes at the HIYC take 2.5 to 3.5 hours daily

The Yoga Weekend and 5-Day Yoga Course provide an introduction to Iyengar Yoga. For serious Yoga Practitioners and people with Therapeutic needs we highly recommend following a minimum of 2 consecutive 5-Day Courses to learn the most essential poses of our practice and experience the essence of Yoga. After 3 x 5-Day Courses we consider that a student is fully prepared to continue to Self-Practice as well as qualifying for one of our 160H Intensive Yoga Courses and the Yoga Teacher Training Course. For this reason we offer discount on each successive course booked up to 4 weeks.

Classes may be recorded by audio, video and photography for the purpose of archiving the teachings. Recordings will be made available via membership site to students for their own study at home.
