Iyengar Foundation Series

Tuesdays: March 5 – 26 at Westgate with Samantha from 1:30 – 2:45pm
Build a solid foundation in your yoga practice while gaining strength, increasing flexibility and improving posture with Iyengar yoga. In this series you will gain a solid foundation to refine and deepen your personal practice, or finally achieve that pose you have been working on for years.
Iyengar yoga is a powerful and gentle discipline of yoga created by world renowned yoga instructor B.K.S. that focuses on classic poses with a deep awareness of correct alignment and precise action in the body. Iyengar yoga uses props, safe sequencing and longer holds of asana (postures) to allow you time to adjust your body to the perfect alignment and “penetrate beyond the physical body to the inner koshas (layers) of the mind, energy and spirit, gaining vitality, clarity and calm through the practice” IYNAUS.
The concepts learned here will benefit your other classes and daily life, helping you to modify poses, know what is safe and provide pain and stress relief. This series is open to all levels, beginners and advanced practitioners.
In this series we will use lots of props that assist the advanced practitioner to move deeper into their poses, the beginner to find alignment and help to keep your body safe and the practice accessible to us even when we are injured. We will move through standing poses, backbends, forward bends and inversions in this four week series.
