Sri B.K.S Iyengar
Yoga Essentiel, located in the N.D.G borough of Montreal, invites students of all ages and levels of physical ability, offering multi-level classes of alignment based yoga inspired by the Iyengar method. The classes are organized in 8 -week terms in order to provide a structured and stable learning environment. The classes are presented thematically on a weekly basis, and explore a range of postures (asana) and introduce breathing techniques (pranayama); a thorough practice that allows us a deeper insight into our body. The fundamental postures are taught with attention to alignment and postural adjustment, and are catered to each individual's needs and physical abilities. The goal is for the student to obtain a solid base of both practice and understanding of yoga. The classes are suitable for all except people with serious medical conditions who may otherwise consider beginning with private yoga therapy sessions.

In order to ensure the highest level of safety for both the students and teacher, in accordance with the guidelines of public health organizations, governments and local authorities, we will be applying the following precautions:
A maximum of 10 students is accepted per class. Floor markings for placement of your mat will ensure a 2 meter distance between the students.
It is required that all students wear a mask when entering the school until arrival at their mats, and while socializing before and after classes. Masks are not required during yoga practice, where talking is kept to a minimum. However, it is encouraged to wear a mask if it does not cause a bother.
Students are required to bring their own yoga mats and straps. It is strongly encouraged that you bring other props that you own. Blocks and chairs will be disinfected after each use. The use of blankets and bolsters is permitted if you bring a towel or pillowcase to cover them. Props will be available for purchase.
Hand sanitizer will be provided upon arrival.
