Iyengar Yoga Home Practice Sheets

These yoga routines are designed to be simple, effective and easy to use. You may need some equipment, but most can be substituted with things you have at home. Beginners can try any of the first seven sequences. The Level 1 and Level 2 sequences are for more experienced students.

Staying in the poses is part of the process, to observe the way the body adjusts, learn how to release pain and tension, and allow the body and mind to relax. So it’s helpful to have a timer for these sequences. If you use your phone put it in flight mode.

If you have any questions or comments, please use the box below.

With best wishes, Hannah.

Children are natural yogis!

Taylor (7) said, ‘ Look, Granny – I can do yoga,’ and threw himself down on the tiled kitchen floor in Yoganidrasana – just like that.

I was intrigued! So (on a carpet this time), we went through the pictures in a couple of children’s yoga books – ‘Watch Me Do Yoga‘ by Bobby Clennell and  ‘Yoga For Children‘ by Swati and Rajiv Chanchani.

Taylor – you’re a natural – even your mother was amazed!
