About Us

The Yoga Selection Story

Yoga Selection was created in 2016 with a mission to become the most comprehensive Iyengar Yoga training resource available online.

It began as a boutique membership site for Iyengar practitioners, and is now accessed by members in more than 50 countries worldwide, catering to all levels and abilities.
Yoga Selection strives to be welcoming and generous. That’s why we provide abundant free resources, personalised member support and authentic teaching to help you get results.

By creating structured and rigorous online classes to suit all bodies and abilities, more and more people get to experience the therapeutic benefits of Iyengar Yoga.

Whether you are an absolute beginner or an advanced practitioner, Yoga Selection has so much to offer. With a dedicated beginners’ section, courses, in-depth tutorials, weekly intermediate and advanced classes and our growing sequence library, the possibilities for exploring and expanding your practice are endless.

What is Iyengar Yoga?

Iyengar Yoga is a popular style of yoga based on the teachings of contemporary Indian yoga master B.K.S. Iyengar. The method emphasises precision and alignment. Teachers of this style understand the practical and therapeutic effects of the various yoga poses. This knowledge is used to create tailored and coherent sequences that impart specific physical and mental benefits.

The training and certification process is renowned for its rigour. This ensures that all certified teachers have a high standard of technical understanding and teaching experience. This detailed and structured system for learning yoga can be easily adapted to suit the needs of individuals of all ages and body types.

Stay motivated. Get support when you need it.

Staying motivated to practice yoga regularly can be challenging. That’s why our learning system helps you track your progress, sends you email reminders and assists you in taking the next step.

“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. ”

Ruby (USA)

“ 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.”

Sam (Australia)

“ 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 yoga studio. ”

Pierre (France)

“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.”

Geraldine (USA)

“ 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. ”

Janet (Canada)

“ 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. ”

Kate (USA)

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

Dana (USA)

“ 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 yogaselection. It really helped and motivated me - so much that I accepted the 100 days yoga every day challenge, since September 6th, with the help of your classes.”

Katrin (Germany)
