Our introductory course is designed for people who are true beginners to yoga. We don’t expect you to have any particular level of fitness or flexibility. We start at the beginning to give you the best opportunity to understand and get ‘hooked on yoga’. The course is also ideal for easing yourself back into yoga if you have had a break or are new to the Iyengar Yoga method.
The course will introduce you to standing poses, twists and gentle back and forward bends, with a focus on the foundation of each pose and how this generates energy throughout the body. Each class finishes with relaxation.
The five weeks are aimed at giving you a taste of yoga and inspiring you to develop a regular yoga practice. Most students at our yoga studio in Melbourne feel the difference within the first couple of classes, commenting that they feel taller or more buoyant, their mind is clearer, or simply that they sleep well after every class.
Our courses often book out, with our Carlton North yoga studio attracting students from neighbouring Melbourne northern suburbs such as Fairfield, Northcote, Preston, Princes Hill, Fitzroy, Collingwood.

Vivienne is the founder and director of the Luna Yoga studio. She was introduced to yoga in 1990 on a small island in Thailand. After a week of early morning classes, she intuitively knew that yoga would become a large part of her life. On returning home, she discovered the Iyengar Yoga method. It offered her a complete yoga practice with vast challenges.
Rachel’s love of yoga started in Christchurch, New Zealand and followed her to London and then Melbourne. As a research scientist, she was attracted to the “science” of Iyengar Yoga. Initially, the yoga asanas (poses) didn’t come naturally, but when she started teacher training in 2004 she utilised the techniques that Mr Iyengar has given us (props, sequencing and timings) to experiment with her body.
Nicole’s childhood was filled with yoga and ballet. In her early adult life, she was a professional costume maker and dancer before settling into the fashion industry. Her love for yoga was ignited in 1990 when she found Iyengar Yoga, which she deeply values for its clarity and direction and the way it continues to open new doors for learning.
Andrea had been practising yoga for many years when she discovered Iyengar Yoga in 2010. She was immediately inspired by its approach to learning which emphasises alignment and experimentation. The Iyengar method gave her the tools to develop her yoga practice in preparation for an intense two-year teacher training program with senior Iyengar Yoga teacher Vivienne O’Brien.
