Introduction to Iyengar Yoga

Dana Hanizeski

Iyengar Yoga is a style of yoga that will meet you where you are. It emphasizes proper body alignment, and use of yoga props. Depending on how they are used, props can make poses more accessible, or they can add a greater challenge.

Iyengar Yoga teaches us how to identify and work from the foundation of a yoga posture. In a beginning class, we do this by learning standing poses. This would make the foundation our feet and legs, and we will address that in depth through triangle pose, side angle pose, and warrior 2. You will also learn to sense your foundation underneath you when you are seated and lying down to rest in relaxation. Enjoy!

Mulabhanda: Checking The Downward Pull

Bhavani Maki

We are born aquatic and have to work our whole lives to find our legs, and to work with gravity to embody the experience of ascension. Standing postures actively develop strength and suppleness of the legs, as well as stability in consciousness. Abhyasa, or practice, literally means to “check the downward pull”. An integration of Patanjali Yoga Sutra, functional anatomy and asana offer pragmatic development of Yoga as the art and science of self-actualization through embodiment.

Build Inversions Safely

Desiree Rumbaugh

Unless you have had gymnastics training, you will probably notice that Inversions are very challenging and sometimes seemingly impossible poses. Beginning to practice inversions as an adult is an extraordinary achievement and one we believe is worth your time. It is, however, very important to have the proper conditioning to make your journey safe and productive. Here is a simple routine designed to prepare you physically and mentally for this feat. If you have tight shoulders, take more time during the week to do the shoulder stretching that is demonstrated in this video. Also, practice the preparations for inversions without going fully upside down often so you become more accustomed to the blood pressure changes that occur when you are upside down.

Shifting Paradigms

Dana Smith

It is said that change is the only constant. For some, cultivating the confidence to embrace the unknown is a scary thought. If we want to change the things that we experience we must change the way we see them. Inversions are the perfect way to shift paradigms and see the world from a new perspective. In support of riding the wave of change, we will explore Sirsasana, headstand. In this energetic class, you'll learn the key actions to work towards your full expression of the pose.
