with Nicola Tiburzi
The Iyengar method works on the principle of meditation in action. Practitioners concentrate closely on the movements in the yoga postures (asanas), bringing the body into balance by increasing mobility, stability, strength and alignment. At the same time, this intense concentration draws the attention inward, quieting and integrating mind and body.
Restorative Practice – Practice passive supportive poses and pranayama (breathing). sequence repeats weekly allowing individuals to learn how postures apply uniquely to them, which props they need, ultimately teaching students to be self sufficient in their practice. Regular attendance required, no drop in’s
Beginner – Both passive and dynamic in practice, the teacher works with each student assisting in the assimilation of the basics needed to safely achieving foundational poses, sometimes using props, i.e blankets or blocks. Each class builds on the next, enhancing learning experiences. Beginner “Iyengar” Hatha yoga classes are suitable for new students, but also students from a different yoga traditions.
All levels – classes are suitable for those who have taken a minimum of 6 months of Beginner Iyengar yoga and beginning to work with basic inversions.
