Yoga Costs

Hi Teflon, no problems in helping. Further along the south coast a yoga class of any level costs £6 for one hour, £8 for one and a half. This is the same for all levels. This is at what I imagine is without question the best quality yoga in UK. As yoga is unregulated in UK I guess costs vary nationally. To stay cheerful I keep reminding myself that my back problems are behind me now but they stick like a bad smell despite that thought. Linzi.

Yoga Salisbury

Hi Teflon, I asked a yoga supply shop owner as I passed him on the pavement and he suggested looking in world of yoga for a list of teachers. I managed to catch my workaholic teacher between classes and he said that was a good hint. I couldn't find it on the net though!
I tried Yell.com the UK's local search engine - search for UK businesses and came up with three ads for Salisbury: Fiona and two Iyengar teachers. BKS Iyengar was a Guru with whom Wanda Scaravelli trained. The Iyengar system of yoga is the type you need. I suggest phoning and not mentioning any injury or physical problem to see if they make the probing questions a good teacher would make about a new pupil's health. I hope sincerely that you get the benefit you can from yoga. Regards,Linzi.

Salisbury Yoga

Hi Teflon, try Yell.com the UK's local search engine - search for UK businesses for yoga in Salisbury. I found three listed: Fiona and two Iyengar teachers. The much missed guru, BKS Iyengar, taught Wanda Scaravelli, and their yoga is the type for you. I'd suggest phoning these schools without mentioning any physical problems to see if they make the probing questions about your possible injuries etc. which a good and safe teacher will make. I hope sincerely that you gain benefit from any classes you attend. Regards, Linzi.

Yoga in the UK

Hi -
The main governing body for yoga in the UK is The British Wheel of Yoga. They have a good web page where you can search for British Wheel qualified teachers in your area. This is a well respected qualification and meets nationally recognised standards.
BWY - Find a Teacher

The other main association is Iyengar Yoga uk - similarly - check out their web page. Iyengar Yoga Association of the United Kingdom

Prices do vary - some classes are subsidised by local authorities etc, others not. I would expect to pay around £5-6 per class, but you may get a lower rate for buying a block of classes, or a term subscription. (I charge £5 for One and a half hours, for 9 classes, then students get their 10th session for free - a bit like a coffee shop!)

I hope that helps!
