ASANA (the Postures)

According to the yogic tradition and guidelines of Mr. Iyengar, yoga asana classes focus on correct body alignment, sequencing of postures and timing, allowing the student to learn and practice harmoniously.

Props (belts, blocks, blankets, etc.) are used when needed to facilitate learning and to help the body into the correct positions. Through the practice of asana, students develop strength, stamina, stability, concentration, and inner calmness.

PRANAYAMA (Breath Awareness)

Instruction in Pranayama (prana is “life force”; yama is “discipline” or “control”) is provided in intermediate classes.

This teaches the student control of the breath through the practice of deliberate rhythms of inhalation, exhalation and retention. Through the practice of pranayama, the student further develops the skill of withdrawing the senses and calming the mind.

PHILOSOPHY

In every class, the instructors weave in the philosophy and spiritual wisdoms of the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali as well as contemporary teachings. This enriches the students experience and gives greater insight to the power of the path of Yoga.
