The Iyengar method is a process of learning skillful action. The student progresses along a spectrum of postures while gaining flexibility, strength and sensitivity in awareness. Alignment and sequencing are key elements that ensure the student is steady and safe while performing the poses. Concise, systematic instruction allows the student to perform each pose in an anatomically intelligent way to avoid injury or pain. Classes are conducted with attention to the sequence of postures as they have a different effect on the mind and body based on the order in which they are performed. The use of props, as developed by B.K.S. Iyengar, helps correctly position the body in the poses.
Yoga Nidra, also called ‘yogic sleep’ or ‘divine sleep’, is an immensely powerful meditation technique, and one of the easiest yoga practices to develop and maintain. Students will lay in resting pose, and will be led into deep relaxation through a guided meditation. No yoga experience necessary. Wear comfortable clothes.

These poses apply moderate stress to the connective tissues of the body- the tendons, fascia, and ligaments- with the aim of increasing circulation into the joints & improving flexibility.
