"Yoga is not a workout, it's a work-"in""
The Iyengar tradition of Hatha Yoga follows the teachings of B.K.S. Iyengar. Its cornerstone is correct alignment of all parts of the body, within each pose, to create space for a balanced flow of energy throughout the entire being, on the mat and in daily life. Creative use of yoga props, such as blocks, straps, blankets and chairs, is commonly incorporated to practice with proper alignment, regardless of a student's experience or physical condition.

Hatha is often described as the physical branch of yoga. All types and styles of physical yoga (postures) are technically Hatha. Hatha yoga incorporates classical physical postures practiced with breath awareness and mindfulness. This practice brings about many physical and mental benefits.

Restorative yoga is a quiet practice that is passive in nature using gravity and the support of props for relaxation, rejuvenation, and recovery from stress. Poses are held with support for longer lengths of time, which facilitates mind-full relaxation. Iyengar Restorative yoga classes help quiet and calm the nervous system, restore energy, and revitalize the immune system. One must be able to perform inversions - please no beginners.
This class is geared towards students with spinal asymmetry, e.g. scoliosis. The class will focus on the individual's ongoing exploration of their spinal patterns and useful asana (posture) modifications. They will address chronic pain issues and focus on structural awareness to help balance the spine and bring harmony to the mind/body complex.
There are two requirements for any student, first the student should have the ability to get up and down from the floor by yourself, and be able to move your own props.
Please consider Private classes if you cannot meet these requirements.
