Introductory Classes are designed to introduce the Iyengar method of yoga to students new to yoga or new to the Iyengar method. These classes emphasize standing postures. They include beginning seated and forward bending postures followed by passive supported postures.
The practices of yoga, like any subject, should be learned systematically. Training the physical body, senses of perception, the mind, and consciousness are approached in a practical manner that begins with the standing postures. Beginners should start with these as they bring elasticity to the body and build stamina and physical steadiness. These constitute the most basic training in the earliest stages of learning yoga. In addition, as the student progresses, other types of postures including forward bending, twists, seated and inverted are introduced.
These classes are also suitable for those who previously attended an introductory series at the Center and wish to begin again.
Please wear shorts or foot-less tights and a t-shirt to class, along with bare feet. Have an empty stomach.
See the dates and times listed below for sessions beginning soon. We accept students up until the second week of an introductory series.
