Iyengar Yoga Studies
April 21st, 1:00-3:00pm
June 9th, 1:00-3:00pm
$80 for the two sessions
This ongoing program is for serious students with an interest in developing a better understanding of Iyengar Yoga. Bring greater depth and breadth to your yoga practice by studying all eight limbs of yoga—not just asana. Meeting eight times per year, we’ll discuss key concepts from the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, sequencing and practice of asana, and anatomy and physiology as it applies to yoga practice. Topics and readings will be assigned beforehand to help enrich our discussions.
Iyengar Yoga Studies is offered each quarter throughout the year. Students may join at the beginning of any quarter. For greater continuity and to enhance the learning process and community development, students are encouraged to participate on an ongoing basis.
Restorative Yoga Class
April 27th 6:30-8:30pm
May 25th 6:30-8:30pm
June 29th 6:30-8:30pm
This class meets the last Friday of every month.
Increasingly, our daily lives ask us to be more active, to multi-task, and to seek continual improvement. To find a more peaceful state, we can choose to slow down, quiet our thoughts, and find contentment in the way things are. In this series we will explore restorative poses that allow the body, mind and heart to rest in a state of quiet and peace. Poses will be held for several minutes with the support of props and with little to no muscular effort.
$60 for all 3 classes.
