Katrin

Germany

"I tried to install a regular home practice but found it difficult to get back into it, all on my own at home. That changed when I discovered Yoga Selection. It really helped and motivated me - so much that I accepted the 100 days yoga every day challenge… with the help of your classes."

Ruby

USA

"I have really enjoyed your presentation of classes and Instagram sequences… Thanks for your generous contribution to learning Iyengar Yoga. You are a wonderful resource for my teaching and practice."

Sam

Australia

"Thank you so much for all the work and energy you put into Yoga Selection. I am a devoted Iyengar practitioner and teacher here in WA and it is an invaluable resource. Your teaching is clear, concise and very detailed. The sequences are wonderful. My favourite one so far has been the sequence to lift your mood."

Pierre

France

"Rod has been my yoga teacher for several years and I have thoroughly enjoyed each and every class. Rod is an amazing teacher, and his knowledge of the discipline is second to none… The online classes are very user friendly and cover all topics of yoga. Depending on the time available, I can either pick a short course on a specific pose, or follow a full class very similar to that of a studio."

Geraldine

USA

"Thank you Rod. Your offerings are very inspiring. I love the presentation. I have been hoping to find something like this for a long time… you are quite neutral as a teacher, it's about the yoga experience and not you."

Janet

Canada

"I want to thank you for all of your hard work, devotion and time you have taken to ensure Iyengar Yoga continues spreading throughout the world! Your work, information and pleasant presentations are truly great! Namaste."

Kate

USA

"Hi Rod, I found you searching Iyengar classes near me (alas, none within driving distance), and then saw your beginner's sequence for back pain. I practiced with it several times, and my body loved it so much I taught it to my yoga class. I just signed up for your 14-day trial, and took my first class. Thank you SO much for yogaselection.com. What a fabulous resource! I look forward to exploring all you have created here, and sharing it as I'm able in gratitude."

Dana

USA

"Thanks, Rod, for providing us with such a great resource for Iyengar Yoga!"
