Review about Antaranga Yoga Center
Looking for a more challenging type of yoga? A genre where every movement, every single pose is performed and maintained with perfection in mind? Look no further: Antaranga Yoga Center is the master of Iyengar yoga in Budapest. This branch of yoga was created in 1918 in India. Actually, it is not too different from the Hatha yoga, the most well-known type… One main distinction is that the focus here is on precision and perfect alignment in each posture. Now, since this is a slightly particular kind of yoga, the expertise of instructors also have to be top-notch. Which, might we add: they absolutely are at this place! You will not find a whole lot of yoga classes (actually, you will find only a couple per day). However, those classes are taught with 100% dedication, patience and knowledge of how to perform impeccable asanas.
The yoga studio in Budapest where the focus is on knowledge
The proficiency of the teachers are honestly mind-blowing, they know exactly how to help you reach your goals of yoga-perfection! Firmly but gently, they will guide you through the right breathing, which is also a very important part of Iyengar yoga. What is more, there are levels of one to four in it, a great idea from this yoga studio in Budapest. This way, you can really practice and get better with people who are at the same level as you, without feeling left behind. (Or, if you are a yoga smarty-pants, feeling weighed down by all the newbies)!
Now, let’s take a look at the studio – gym – itself. Forget the typical yoga décor, the incense and all those other classic yoga studio accessories. Here, you will find a fully functioning gym that is well-equipped. You’ll find every single small thing you might need to start and nurture a successful Iyengar yoga career. Easy as that. Don’t expect too much fanciness or a mystical atmosphere. The magic here lies in the vast knowledge of teachers and the masterful way they transmit that science onto the students who will become even more obsessed with yoga than they were before.
Unfortunately, the location of the gym is quite outside of the city, in the 16th district, so you might have to travel a little. Still, on the bright side, there is usually no huge crowd at the classes. You can change into your yoga clothes in a comfy and calm manner. No crowd in the locker rooms, either. And, there is no problem with an old school environment as long as the quality of education is perfect, right?
