IYENGAR YOGA CLASSES IN HAMPSHIRE WITH RACHEL LOVEGROVE
“Change is not something that we should fear. Rather, it is something that we should welcome. For without change, nothing in this world would ever grow or blossom, and no one in this world would ever move forward to become the person they’re meant to be.” BKS Iyengar
From November 2018 Rachel relocated back to her childhood home in Hampshire, UK after 12 years teaching and living in Portugal. She teaches private (individual, couples and group) home tuition and group classes, in the Southampton and Winchester areas as well as workshops and weekend retreats.

Not only for the young & flexible!
You do not have to be a particular age or level of flexibility to come to class. Being young and flexible is NOT a pre-requisite! Iyengar Yoga will slowly and safely improve your flexibility (which is important for joint mobility as well as heart and blood circulation) and change your posture for the better. It will also build strength, health and vitality where you need it most.
If on the other hand you are too flexible, the alignment-based yoga will help you to avoid injury and hyper-mobility so you can attain a stronger and more balanced body.
Men are as welcome as women. Many of Rachel’s clients are professional athletes or men who practice a lot of sports. Yoga is non-competitive. Everyone is an individual in Rachel’s classes and you work according to your own capabilities. Yoga works not only on the physical body, but also on the mind and on personal development. In fact, health and wellness are considered a positive by-product of this ancient practice by many serious yogis, the main purpose of which being to still the mind.
“I’ve been to 50 physios around the world to fix my back pain, nothing worked. Within 3 sessions with Rachel, the pain disappeared. Yoga has had a profound effect on my life.”
