Quiet, Cool, and Calm
3 Wednesdays : July 1st, 15th, and 29th
7:30 – 8:30 pm
$45 for the series, $20 single class
This one-hour restorative class will use supported asanas to release the physical and mental tension from the day while building a deeper awareness of the body and breath. Using support can allow for a quieter way of working that relies on the movement of the breath. These asanas will help cool the body and brain bringing a peacefulness that will promote a good night’s sleep. Open to all levels. Blankets, blocks, a belt and a bolster will all be useful, but students are encouraged to utilize common household items as substitutes.
Special Focus Series : Shoulders
2 Fridays : July 10th, 24th
10:00 – 11:30 am
$45 for the series
Whether you’ve been struggling with tight shoulders for years or are attempting to find ways to counteract the inevitable increase in your computer time of late, this series will present simple movements that, done daily, will bring greater freedom to the shoulders. We’ll also examine how the positioning of the upper back is directly related to shoulder mobility and how to strengthen the upper back for shoulder health. Open to students of all levels with some Iyengar Yoga experience.
The Art of Progression
Friday, July 31st
4:00 – 6:00 pm
Yoga is a process of moving gradually toward a higher state; in asana, we use the body as the means for transformation. This transformation (parinama) depends on a step-by-step progression (krama) that supports the development of the body and concentration and steadiness of the mind. This two-hour class allows time to explore in greater depth the many dimensions of an advanced asana and how these challenging poses can be practiced with purpose. The asana sequence will reveal hidden links that will allow students to work toward an unfamiliar pose with greater confidence and ease.
