Where do I start?

Once you have signed up for your free trial you might be wondering “where do I start?”

If you are an absolute beginner, or if you need to brush up on some basics, then head to the Beginners Section. Here you will find a series of structured courses that take you step-by-step through the fundamental basics of yoga. Complete them all and you will be starting off on your yoga journey with a solid foundation. You might want to repeat them, maybe even more than once. When you feel ready you can then head over to the Classes section to explore some other options for intermediate and eventually, advanced practitioners.

For intermediate to advanced practitioners, it may be worth considering looking at the beginners section if you have practiced a significantly different style of yoga in the past. Learning the basic principles according to the Iyengar style, will help you get more out of the other classes and courses on the site. Once you feel ready, go to the “Classes” section to explore your range of options. There are structured courses exploring particular poses or sequences in depth. Try the pose library if there is a particular asana you want to refine. Catch your regular weekly class to progress with your ongoing yoga journey – getting new insights and approaches week by week.

There are so many options to explore in your very own online yoga studio. Start your free 14 day trial and get ready to do some yoga!

What level am I?

Beginner

Start at this level if you are new to yoga, new to Iyengar yoga, or wanting to focus on the essential foundations of Iyengar yoga. Start with the Beginners Courses on the Beginners Section page.

Intermediate

Start at the intermediate level if you have completed the Yoga Selection Beginners Courses, or have at least three months prior yoga experience elsewhere. Try the intermediate level classes on the Weekly Classes page.

Advanced

If you are experienced with Iyengar yoga and looking to be challenged, the advanced level classes will be best for you. Ideally you will have experience with inversions and backbends.
