* Mixed Level classes. Beginners are welcome!
Pregnant women are welcome to attend regular classes if they have attended Iyengar classes regularly. If you are pregnant and new to Iyengar yoga, a beginning class is recommended. Modifications will be made as needed.
For beginning students. You will be introduced to the fundamentals of Iyengar yoga, with emphasis being given to standing poses, basic seated poses and twists. Students will be introduced to Sarvangasana (shoulder balance) and restorative poses.
For students who have completed at least six months of beginning Iyengar classes and have a good understanding of the material presented in Level I. We will explore more subtle aspects of the poses introduced in previous levels and begin new inversions such as Sirsasana (head balance).
For students who have been taking Level II Iyengar yoga classes for some time and would like a deeper study of the asanas. Students should have a regular practice of Sirsasana, Sarvangasana, Adho Mukha Vrksasana and Urdhva Dhanurasana or know any adaptations that they may need for these asanas.
Students who want to increase their flexibility and strength but have physical limitations due to an injury or illness or other special challenges will benefit from this class. Students will be guided through a practice using various supports at a pace that is safe and effective to meet each student's needs and abilities. Each class will incorporate active as well as restorative asanas to help reduce stress and increase mobility and balance.
The curtains will be drawn to provide a safe space for women of all faiths and backgrounds to study and practice yoga together.
