Here are some questions we’re often asked about yoga at The Yoga Nook, if there is something you’d like to ask that you can’t find below please email email@example.com or call us on 02 9550 9155
At The Yoga Nook we teach Iyengar Yoga, named after BKS Iyengar, a profound teacher who died in 2015 at the age of 95. Iyengar Yoga develops intelligence, clarity, vitality and space within the body. Props are sometimes used to bring more clarity to the asanas and make them more accessible. Working clearly with our bodies increases the clarity of our minds. As our powers of perception grow we see that what we do and how we do it creates the consequences we live with, both in our bodies and our lives. In this way we can learn to have healthier bodies and lead happier lives. All our teachers are fully qualified Iyengar teachers and have been teaching and studying for many years.
T-shirts and stretchy shorts or tights are ideal – clothes in which you can move and allow the teacher to see your arms and legs.
Yes, you can do a casual class for $23 and decide then whether you want to enrol for the rest of the term – an option that works out cheaper for you. You can also continue to attend as a casual student, although we encourage you to enrol.
We have a maximum class size of 14. Most often the class is 10-12 people. This ensures everyone gets individual attention.

A. Everyone progresses at their own pace. When your teacher thinks you are ready they will talk to you about going to Level 2. In Level 2 students are expected to be starting their own practice and attending at least 2 classes. Level 2 students are expected to be able to do a headstand against the wall and shoulderstand. A good way to prepare for Level 2 is to take up the opportunity to do intensives and retreats.
A. Please re-enrol for the next term at the end of each term. This lets us know how many spaces we have for new students.

No. You’re welcome to bring your own mat but we have all the gear.
