The building is an aesthetically designed unique structure - built on stilts – surrounded by a landscaped water body. For the construction of this center the architect has adopted the Egyptian principle of the golden proportion.
Fully equipped with every prop and accessory used in the philosophy and teaching of the “Iyengar Yoga”, this institute promises to teach you every technique, posture and nuance that embodies this unique, research based practice of yoga sutras.
The wooden floored, air-conditioned yoga hall with glass exteriors allows ample natural light within the class-room making the landscaped outside greenery a part of the interiors – thus creating a serene zen-like ambience within the yoga studio. The individual changing rooms for men and women have facilities for shower, closets to hang clothes and lockers for valuables. The centre boasts a library covering various yoga topics with a secluded sit-down reading space. A small self-sufficient cafeteria complements the library.
The Heritage store in the basement offers many yoga related items for sale like props, cds, videos, t-shirts and tights made from organic material – this completes a full circle where every minute detail for student comfort has been attended to – setting up a new benchmark for a state-of-the-art yoga centre!
