Founders’ vision

Make people lead a better life by simply adopting yoga in an easy and effective way. Just by doing a few asanas everyday, one can lead a better life. Yoga is essential, rather than optional. Thousands of years ago, yoga was invented by our sages & seers who possessed tremendous mental and physical capabilities. Yoga was given to us all to harness the same energy.

“Yoga does not just change the way we see things; it transforms the person who sees.”

Iyengar Yoga has made the adaptability of yoga according to the modern day mental and physical conditions. Hence, the relevance of yoga is as much as it used to be earlier. The use of yoga props to build the asanas correctly, study of asanas through alignment, its scientific importance is a key aspect.

“Yoga teaches us to cure what need not be endured and endure what cannot be cured.”

About the Course

We follow a simple process, students watch with a keen eye when the teacher demonstrates with full explanation and detailing. Afterwards students will repeat(do) the same, with full understanding, while the teacher will give personal modification to each student.

Programme is conducted over three months. The fundamental knowledge of hatha yoga teaches students to develop a scientific and correct daily yoga self-practise. Students learn the healing nature of Iyengar Yoga by use of props like belt, chair, blocks etc to practise with the right approach. The course is rigorous and relaxing, where the teacher will modify the asanas according to the students’ needs and adaptability.
The basic foundation of #Watch’n’Do is therapeutic based. As the teachers are masters at therapeutic yoga and have tens of years of experience in healing hundreds of cases so far.

Students develop a wholesome understanding of asanas and pranayama. This prepares them for a serious self practice at home. Learn to clear confusions, doubts and fear in attempting an asana by learning each asanas step-by-step in a systematic manner, theoretically and practically, both. Stress is given to maturity in understanding the correct alignment of the asana and the resulting healing that takes place. Students learn this form in the most classical way possible, engaging the body and mind to the fullest. New ideas are taught in every class. No two classes are ever the same. Teacher evolves the methodology everyday.

Students’ can make use of the facility for self-practicing or purchase a few basic props for home. They develop a keen eye to make use of household items, like a regular home chair for example, for yoga practice. Teachers will give tips to overcome lethargy in doing self-practice at home. Students will begin to look-forward to their daily yoga routine by following these simple and easy to do, yet effective style of Iyengar Yoga.

All the classes will be recorded on zoom and the recording will be shared after each class.
