Toward Yoga Ubaya Padangusthasana

Over 25 Years of Yoga Experience

Hi! My name is Sarah Toward and I am a fully qualified Iyengar yoga instructor. I have been practising yoga for over 25 years.

I gained my first qualification to teach Iyengar yoga in 2005, and continue to gain further qualifications, constantly striving to be the very best teacher I can be.

I have always loved being active: running, karate, circuit training, tennis, surfing, etc. Initially I thought yoga would be a bit too whimsical and ‘girly’ for me. Find out more about me >

Why Iyengar yoga?

Yoga Master B.K.S. Iyengar has systematised over 200 asana and 14 types of Pranayama, from the simple to the almost inconceivably difficult. These have been structured and categorised so as to allow a beginner to progress surely and safely from basic postures to the most advanced as they gain flexibility, strength and sensitivity in mind, body and spirit.

Iyengar focuses on precise body alignment - Iyengar teachers have rigorous training over many years to ensure they are skilled at adjusting students in an anatomically correct way so that the student suffers no injury or pain.

Another unique aspect of Iyengar Yoga is that BKS Iyengar developed the use of equipment/props which help you attain the correct position in the postures. Props are objects like blocks, chairs, blankets and belts.

Our weekly Iyengar yoga classes in Hertfordshire are for everyone - we also run an Intermediate class for our more advanced yoga students, plus a range of one-to-one sessions. Discover the benefits of Iyengar yoga today, by booking on one of our classes >
