This level is a necessary requirement for students who have no previous experience in the Iyengar method of yoga. Basic poses are taught with emphasis on developing balance, strength and flexibility. Students will be taught relaxation skills that can be used on and off the mat.
This level allows students to enlarge their repertoire of poses, and continue to delve into the other limbs of yoga including pranayama and dhyana (breath control and meditation). Shoulderstand is a regular part of the practice at this level.
At this level, more challenging poses are introduced to students who are capable of deeper, more refined work. Headstand is part of this deepening work. A regular home practice is expected.
Suitable for all levels, this class is taught by and for members of the LGBTQ community.
