Darrin has been a teacher and director of the Kensington School of Yoga for 20 years. He lives in West Croydon and felt this would be a good area to begin a simple studio offering Iyengar classes in this diverse community.
Catherine Liddy has been practicing yoga for over 25 years and has been teaching yoga for 15 years. She is currently at Coast Yoga Centre in Glenelg.
Leonie Wierenga has been practicing Iyengar yoga since 2001 and has been teaching since 2017. She completed her Iyengar certification under the guidance of Darrin McNally and continues to study with him. “The study of Iyengar yoga continues to inspire me every day and it has given me a practise that I have been able to sustain through different stages and events in my life."
What is Iyengar Yoga?
BKS Iyengar was a great yoga practitioner and teacher born in Belur India in 1918. He maintained a strong practice right until his death in August 2014.
The Iyengar approach to yoga is firmly based in the traditional teachings of Patanjali and his Yoga sutras, an ancient text written some 2500 years ago.
Mr Iyengar took a disciplined and deeply researched approach to this noble subject. Some of the defining characteristics of Iyengar Yoga are an emphasis on precision and alignment, planned sequencing, timings in the practice and the use of props. This approach has made it possible for people of all ages and physical ability to experience the benefits of a yoga practice.
Light on Yoga was first published in 1966 and remains a modern classic on the subject.
