About Us:

This centre exists to promote overall wellbeing through the study of Iyengar Yoga. The studio, establshed in 1993, provides a quiet, welcoming, well-equipped space.

The Iyengar System of Yoga

The regular practice of Iyengar yoga leads to optimal physical and mental health. It is named for B.K.S. Iyengar, of Pune, India, who developed, refined and shared this methodology.

It uses a precise, systematic approach whereby students learn a series of yoga postures in a well- planned order, and synchronize these postures with their breathing. These yoga postures help to exercise, strengthen, balance and cleanse every system of the body: musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, immune, digestive, nervous and respiratory. Students concentrate intently, drawing their attention inward. This concentration quiets and integrates their minds and bodies.

Iyengar yoga is versatile. It can be adapted to suit all ages and levels of fitness. Many students use it to maintain and enhance their existing health. Others seek it to help them manage and improve chronic or acute conditions, especially in therapeutic classes and workshops.

Marilyn Prange
Four study trips to RIMYI, India

Marilyn Prange, a certified yoga teacher in the lyengar System of Hatha Yoga has been practicing yoga since 1976 and teaching it since 1983. Marilyn knew that she wanted to teach yoga from her first class and completed three years of instructor training in Toronto, where she earned her certificate.

Marilyn's life experiences have taken her to India to work with her guru B. K. S. Iyengar, Geetaji, & Prashantji. She was fortunate to be able to travel to India to study four times and is extremely grateful for the exceptional opportunity and gift. In 1992, 1997, 2000 and 2005 Marilyn travelled to Pune, India to the Ramamani Iyengar Memorial Yoga Institute to study with B.K.S. Iyengar, Geeta Iyengar, and Prashant Iyengar. In June, 1998, Marilyn was awarded a National Iyengar Yoga Teaching Certificate: Junior Intermediate Level 1. In 2001 Marilyn was awarded a National Iyengar Yoga Teaching Certificate: Junior Intermediate Level 2.

She works closely with her students, pushing to broaden their limits and gain the maximum benefits of practicing yoga. Marilyn finds that her yoga practice and study has increased her inner strength and helps to alleviate her chronic back pain.

Individual Attention

Classes are small -- rarely larger than 10 students.
The instructor is able to check that each person is aligned in the yoga pose correctly to avoid injury and optimize the benefits.

Superb Equipment

The studio has a wooden floor, important for helping yoga students to become grounded. There are an array of yoga props such as blocks, bolsters, and belts. These props assist and support in a multitude of ways.

Wardrobe
Clothing needs to be flexible to allow bending and stretching, and snug enough to let the instructor observe whether the body is aligned properly in the poses. Feet are bare.
