College Hill Yoga is an Iyengar Yoga program. Aaron Fleming, a certified Iyengar Yoga instructor, is the program director.

Classes are offered in “sessions”, similar to a school semester. Students register for one or two classes a week. Classes are on-going, you do not need to wait until the beginning of the next session to sign up. New students may join the classes at any time and receive a pro-rated fee. Any missed classes may be made up, during the current session, by attending another one. Drop-ins are always welcomed.

The current session runs through June 4. The next session is June 9-July 30, 2015 (8 weeks). Check out the next session schedule here.

Iyengar Yoga is a form of Hatha Yoga created by the late B.K.S. Iyengar. This method of yoga helps develop greater self-awareness by encouraging students to practice with precision and integrate the subtleties of body, breath, and mind into their postures. Iyengar Yoga is rigorous and offers transformational results. Students of all ages, body types, and abilities can readily adapt to Iyengar Yoga. The use of props allows Iyengar Yoga to be accessible to all people at all stages of life and experience.
