New to yoga

Iyengar Yoga is for everyone.

It doesn’t matter if you are young or old, beginner or advanced student, flexible or stiff, overweight or underweight.

You can join our classes anytime. At Iyengar Yoga Zug you will learn the basic yoga poses in a secure and active way.


It’s best to do a trial-month, which costs 100 francs. You can visit four classes of your choice.

Alternatively, you can also buy a single trial class for 30 francs.


Six important rules for your first (and all the following) yoga classes.

1 – Eating and Drinking

It’s best to avoid eating heavy food for about 2 hours before class. There is no need to drink during class.

2 – Injuries

Talk to the teacher before class about injuries, physical problems or medical conditions or when you’re pregnant. With knowledge of your physical needs the teacher can modify, or suggest more effective poses for your situation.

3 – Clothing

Wear clothing that is comfortable but not overly wide. It’s best to wear shorts or leggings so that the teacher can see your knees. We practice yoga barefoot: shoes and socks are not necessary.

4 – Hygiene

You will practice close to other people, so be considerate: don’t wear a lot of perfume, wear clean clothes and shower or wash your feet before the class.

5 – Equipment

The studio is well equipped with mats and other materials, but of course you’re welcome to bring your own mat.

6 – Positive attitude
