What to expect in an Iyengar Yoga class
Our instructors are trained and experienced to know how to modify the poses if you have challenges with your knees, shoulders, back, etc. Please contact or speak to the instructor before class if you have concerns.
Your class may focus on a different area of the body each week or a different category of postures but the principles remain the same. The class will not be the same every week. In the level I and Level I-2 classes, standing poses are introduced and emphasized to build a foundation.
In an Iyengar yoga class, classical yoga postures are taught with an emphasis on alignment so that strength and flexibility develop concurrently. This has tremendous benefit in our daily life. When we can stand and sit well, pain free, we are better able to enjoy life.
Yoga for Seniors and Healthy Aging
Even as the body ages, yoga can be practiced to maintain as long as possible, one’s strength and stability to function better in daily life. It is never too late to start. In our Yoga for Seniors and Level 1 and Level 1-2 classes all are welcome. Our instructors know how to modify the poses if you require more support. In an Iyengar yoga class, you will often see students doing the same pose, but with different supports as required.
Yoga helps cure what need not be endured and endure what cannot be cured.”
Yoga for Adults
Starting yoga as an adult is one of the best practices to maintain one’s health. Regular practice can prevent future problems as practice improves the functioning of all the systems of the body. When you feel better, you can better handle the stresses of life.
