About the course

Healing

The Iyengar style is an ideal practice for those who have physical health issues or old injuries. The focus on alignment in the body allows each individual to work within their own limits safely while still building strength and flexibility in their body. The intensive course was designed properly so you will receive a personal attention in class, assistance in using props, and you can work at your own pace to develop practice that is tailored to your needs. Alpesh, the main teacher has many years of experience using yoga to both healing himself and helping others.

Beginners

Alpesh teaches Hatha yoga in the tradition of Iyengar which focuses on aligning the body to allow good breaths and energies to flow optimally throughout the body.

Instructors

Alpesh Patwari
Alpesh vanquished epilepsy and other ailments emanating from it with the help of yoga. At a tender age of 12 Alpesh was fighting with this medical condition and after depending on other medicines he couldn’t find any recovery. Instead, he was surrounded by several other problems like memory loss, depression and trembling. Finally, Alpesh took up yoga as his last resort to come out of this vicious circle of ailments and live a healthy and normal life. Alpesh has been practicing yoga for more than 22 years now and is a trained and certified yoga teacher.
