This class is designed for those who wish to begin or sustain an Iyengar Yoga practice at a slower pace than our Level 1 classes. Ideal for seniors, those who need extra time getting into and out of poses and those who tend to fatigue more quickly, this class focuses on the foundations of Iyengar Yoga – proper alignment, balance, increased mobility, stamina and strength. Each one hour and fifteen minute session includes a seated meditation, detailed instruction in asana and a period of deep relaxation. Props will be used to facilitate balance, promote flexibility and increase confidence. Sequences of poses will foster a greater sense of mental clarity and well-being.
Although this is not a therapeutics class, it may be appropriate for those recovering from illness or injury who are looking to restart their practices. Please discuss your condition with the teacher to determine whether it is appropriate.
