What is Iyengar Yoga

Iyengar Yoga is a popular style of yoga that emphasizes precise alignment and the use of props to support and enhance the yoga postures. The health-promoting alignment of the body is brought into harmony with the mind.

Through the safe use of props (such as blankets, cushions, belts etc.), this yoga method is accessible to everybody independent of body type and age, health conditions or injury.

Iyengar Yoga teachers undergo rigorous standards of accreditation in their extensive teacher training and need to be licensed to use the Iyengar Certification Mark.

As a long-term and consistent Iyengar-orientated Newcastle yoga studio, we exclusively teach the Iyengar yoga method and nurture this authentic and world-renowned tradition.

What our students say

I have practised Iyengar yoga at various studios over the years, recently I moved to Newcastle and commenced classes with David. David is a wonderful teacher - he is incredibly knowledgeable with the Iyengar practice, he is incredibly kind, welcoming and funny. I highly recommend Hamilton Iyengar yoga.

Melissa

I have been doing yoga here with David for 20 years. This school is down-to-earth, with excellent instruction to help each person at every level. You won't be lying in relaxation the whole time but you will feel fantastic when you leave.

Jennifer

I am in my sixties and feel that my yoga practice is of huge benefit to me physically and emotionally; regardless of age or ability you are always made welcome at Hamilton Yoga.

Margie

Dave is an excellent yoga teacher. He is full of energy and an inspiration to his students. The space is open, inviting and clean. Wonderful teachers and a class to suit every level. Thanks so much, always feel so positive after a class.

The Wall is Our Friend in Iyengar Yoga

The Wall is Our Friend in Iyengar Yoga

August 2023

The wall is probably one of the most versatile props that can be used in yoga based on our individual needs. It provides gentle support, is great for restorative work, or can provide that extra challenge. Making use of this in the practice of yoga can prove to be an invaluable asset to facilitate self-correction and learning.
