The foundational yoga poses are introduced with an emphasis on restoring good posture by improving mobility, strength, stability and alignment of the muscles and joints.

Beginner

The recommended class for most students, including yoga practioners new to Iyengar yoga. In the beginner class, 25 yoga postures are introduced which provide the foundation for a well-rounded yoga practice. Through these foundational postures, students learn how to practice yoga in the Iyengar method correctly and safely and develop the strength, stamina, flexibility and body awareness required to proceed to the next level. Students learn to be familiar with the props used for various postures. Each subsequent level builds on the previous one by adding more postures and deepening the yoga experience.
