Series Classes

The Beginner series is for those folks who are new to yoga practice or returning after an absence.  The classes will introduce standing poses, forward bends, twists and Sarvangasana (Shoulder Stand).

The Level I series is for the yoga practioners with a minimum of 6 months Iyengar Yoga experience.  The class will refine the poses from the beginner series and continue into Sirsasana (head stand) and back bending postures.

There are many advantages of participating in a series of classes.  Each class builds on the previous class.  The greatest benefit comes from attending each class.

A strong abdomen helps to support the low back and improve digestion.  This class will include several types of poses to strengthen the entire mid-torso.

Dec 13 Forward Extensions- Paschima Pratana Sthiti

Forward extensions encourage opening in the hip joints, hamstrings and low back. They also create calmness to the nervous system.  This class will concentrate on extensions using the wall ropes and backless chairs.

Restorative yoga is transformative for the organic system and nervous system of the body.  The poses are held for several minutes while by being supported by bolsters, blankets, chairs and wall ropes.
