Iyengar Yoga Beginner l 6 week course


This class is taught by:

Romina Sesto

Romina has been practicing Yoga since the early 90's. Initially drawn to Yoga for the stress release it offered to a hectic corporate lifestyle. What seemingly became a hobby soon became a way of life.

In early 2007 she was fortunate enough to undertake a 6-month Intensive Yoga Teacher Training program in India under the guidance of Bharath Shetty who was heavily influenced by the Iyengar method. Later that year she became more involved in the teachings of Iyengar Yoga and the effects it has on injuries, misalignments and posture.  It was at this stage that she was able to appreciate the beneficial nature Iyengar Yoga has when practiced regularly, not just physically, but mentally and spiritually.

On returning to Australia she was offered a position as Studio Manager at Yoga To Go in Sydney and commenced Teacher Training within the Iyengar method under the guidance of Simon Marrocco. Romina continues her professional development both locally and internationally with the Iyengar Family and Senior Iyengar Yoga teachers.  She regularly studies at the Ramamani Iyengar Memorial Yoga Institute in Pune, India and is an Intermediate Junior Level 1 certified Iyengar Yoga Teacher.

Romina is the Director of Yoga To Go Studio.   She enjoys teaching a wide cross section of the community ranging from Teenagers to adults and local community groups.  Romina believes that everyone should have the opportunity to experience Yoga no matter what age, colour or religious background or ability. "There is nothing more rewarding than seeing the smiles on people’s faces when they have finished a class".

She enjoys sharing yoga with people of all ages and abilities, and works to foster a sense of discovery and confidence with students as they develop greater strength, flexibility, and awareness in their practice.

Nikki Little

Nikki first started practicing yoga in 2000 as a way of building strength after an injury but soon found that it became a way to help her find the balance in managing a demanding corporate life.

 

She started practising with the teachers at Yoga to Go in 2003 and continued to develop a curiosity and passion for the philosophy that supports the physical practise. Nikki commenced her teacher training with Alan Goode in 2007 and is now an Introductory Level II certified Iyengar Yoga Teacher.

 

She has continued to develop her interest and understanding through ongoing professional development with Senior Iyengar Yoga Teachers. She enjoys the opportunity to assist students in developing their own practise and understanding how the practise of Yoga can have a positive impact on other areas of your life.

The course begins with the basic foundation postures (asana), over the 6 weeks; new poses are introduced while understanding of existing ones are deepened. The primary focus is on imparting a solid grounding and correct alignment in the postures. Ideal for those with no previous experience with yoga, or who have had an extended break from practice.
