This invigorating form of power yoga focuses on connecting breath with flowing transitions between sustained pose holds. Students are encouraged to work their edge or back off when appropriate. It’s not always about physical difficulty, but the degree of quietness, gentleness and sensitivity you instill in your practice! Make it powerful by honoring what you’re feeling and experiencing.
In this class, students will learn basic principles of alignment in each yoga posture according to the guidelines set forth by the teachings of B.K.S. Iyengar. Although each pose will be approached individually (not within a vinyasa format,) the practice will be challenging and rigorous, and will demand concentration and specific effort from each student. Alignment yoga uses props such as blocks, straps, and chairs to attain precise placement of the body in the asana to maximize the benefit and therapeutic value.
