with Julia DeHoff
Thursdays 6:45–8:15 p.m.
Students of Iyengar Yoga begin with basic postures, with an emphasis on the standing asanas (poses). Then other asanas are added, including forward bends and back bends, twists, inversions and restorative poses. Shoulder Balance is introduced as soon as students are ready because of its many therapeutic benefits. Each class ends with Savasana, or deep relaxation, where students learn to rest in a profound way, completely releasing the body while drawing the mind towards the peace within.
