My name is Halima Daunt, I have been practicing yoga for 24 years. I have graduated from two teacher training courses previously Sivananda Vedanta in Kerala, India 15 years ago before discovering Iyengar yoga which I have solely practised ever since and more recently trained in as an Iyengar yoga teacher.
Yoga is for anyone and everyone who is interested. It means many different things to us all at different times. Yoga has seen me through so many joys and challenges, and I am ever hopeful that as a teacher I can share my love of the balance it brings as I carry on learning more and more about this vast wonderful subject.
West View yoga studio in Inglesbatch, near Bath, has been designed with Iyengar yoga in mind to provide flexible support and props for all needs and varied levels of ability. It is a warm, under floor heated, peaceful, beautiful space. Inglesbatch is situated in an unspoilt rural location with panoramic views, free parking and only 15 mins from the centre of Bath, 35 mins from Bristol.
Iyengar yoga is the most precise, in-depth and demanding training in the yoga world and has a tough pass rate. It is the only examining body to assess examinees independently after a minimum two year process. All teachers are trained to rigorously high standards. Once qualified, teachers must continue training regularly and complete professional development training each year in order to maintain their membership of the association. In this way the care clarity and precision that characterises Iyengar yoga is maintained.
“ Many of you may worry that you are unable to meet the challenges that lie ahead. I want to assure you that you can. I am a man who started from nowhere; I was heavily disadvantaged in many ways. After much time and effort, I began to reach somewhere. I literally emerged from darkness to light, from mortal sickness to health, from crude ignorance to immersion in the ocean of knowledge by one means alone, namely by zealous persistence in the art and science of yoga practice (sadhana). What held good for me will hold good for you too.” B.K.S. IYENGAR

Info & Timetable
You can now book a 55 minute time slot on the website. There are multiple time slots to chose from. I have tried to make available as many times slots as I can and to price it as low as I can £15 per household not per head, amongst all this uncertainty.
There will be instructions sent to you after you book on how to set up your mat so I can see you in full and prepare for a virtual class. If you could please reply to this and confirm who will be attending.
Ideally you will need some basic props: Yoga mat, 2 bricks, one belt, 4 blocks, 2 blankets and a bolster. Kids only need a mat where possible. This isn't obligatory and in these strange times doing yoga in any way we can is better than not doing it, with or without props!
I have a few remaining prop bundles for those of you who are local enough to pick up, on a first come first serve basis. I am happy to loan these out for the foreseeable future. I would ask you to leave a small £10 deposit to be refunded on return and trust you will look after them and keep them clean.
To book a class please go to Classes on the menu bar, select the Online Household classes icon and this will then take you to the timetable where you can chose your preferred time and pay for your slot.
Please see the instructional video below. Wishing you all good health and happiness
