Level 1-2

The recommended class for most students, including yoga practitioners new to Iyengar yoga, those continuing in Level 1 as well as level 2 students. In this combined 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.  View class times on our SCHEDULE page.

Pranayama (not currently offered)

“Pranayama” is one of eight aspects or “limbs” of classical yoga, and is an important part of Iyengar Yoga. The term translates as “breath control.” It involves specific forms of inhalation, retention and exhalation of the breath to help focus and calm the mind and nervous system. Each class will include a basic practice of key yoga poses to prepare the body and mind for learning and practicing several forms of breath work.
Students must have first completed an introductory series of classes.

Restorative

Balance and restore your body and mind through supported poses. This class is suitable for students working with limitations and injuries, seniors, pregnancy or those wanting a more relaxing, gentler class.  All levels welcome including new students.

Ropes & Chairs (not currently being offered)

Using the ropes and chairs as props allow the yoga practitioner to change their relationship to gravity allowing for more freedom of movement in the joints, traction to the spine and allows the muscles to develop in different ways.  When hanging in the ropes the muscular effort is less allowing lengthening of the spine.  One can also use the ropes and chairs to strengthen muscles as if the practitioner is “lifting weights”, when in fact they are lifting and using their own body weight to develop strength.  Using the ropes and chairs allows for a playful and exploratory approach to yoga which helps the mind to be open to new experiences.  This class is for all levels, from beginner to advanced.

Gentle (suitable for seniors)

A gentler yoga class at a slower pace to develop greater flexibility, balance, strength, and much more ease in their bodies. Practiced correctly, yoga can help ease the discomfort of arthritis and the general aches and pains of aging.  New students are always welcome.  View class times on our SCHEDULE page.
