Queanbeyan Yoga Room is a fully equipped yoga studio located at 59 Cooma Street in Queanbeyan. The studio is dedicated to the teaching and practice of Iyengar Yoga in the local Queanbeyan community. Chris, the principal teacher, at Queanbeyan Yoga Room, holds an Introductory Level 2 Certificate with the BKS Iyengar Association of Australia, and completed his Preliminary Teacher Training with Alan Goode, Yoga Mandir.
The practise of Iyengar Yoga, as taught at QYR, is characterised by precision and alignment, planned sequencing, timing and the use of props. Practice builds strength, stamina, balance and flexibility, which brings a sense of freedom and wellbeing. The use of props makes Yoga accessible to people of all ages by facilitating alignment and support in practice. With practice, awareness is developed and the mind is trained to focus on the present moment. This allows practitioners to experience quiet and stillness.
Iyengar Yoga is dynamic, physical and rejuvenating. It is suited to all ages and fitness levels. Expect improvements in flexibility, strength and balance. Increase your energy levels, mental focus and confidence. Reduce stress levels. Improve overall health.
Iyengar Yoga is renowned for the extensive training its teachers receive. Teachers are held to rigorous standards of accreditation.
"Asana is a position where the practitioner works, co-ordinates and balances the organs of action, senses of perception, the muscles, ligaments, the tendons, the fibres, the sinews of the body as well as mind, ego, intellect and consciousness in unison, interweaving the gross physical body, the subtle mental body and the causal spritual body."
