Yoga Workshops

Yoga workshops are a chance to work more deeply on your practice. They are usually longer than regular classes so you have time to explore postures in more detail and focus on specific teaching points.

Please note that our yoga workshops are generally unsuitable if you’re menstruating. If you have an injury or medical condition, please consult the office or the yoga workshop teacher before booking.

In addition to workshops held at Maida Vale you can find information about Iyengar events across the South East here >

Workshops with Gabriella Giubilaro

We’re excited to announce that Gabriella Giubilaro is coming back to teach at Maida Vale this year. Gabriella has been practising Iyengar Yoga for over 30 years. After taking her first yoga class in 1973 with Dona Holleman in Florence she stayed on studying and assisting her for 16 years.

She visits Pune every year and studied directly with BKS Iyengar from 1983. She is a founder of the Iyengar Yoga Centre in Florence and co-founder of Association Light on Yoga in Italy. She also has a PhD in physics which is often reflected in her teaching.

She is known for her dynamic teaching, good humour, attention to individual needs and clarity of presentation. She believes in communicating the essence of the yoga postures through simple but meaningful explanations that help the students discover the intelligence of their own bodies.
