Yoga Level Descriptions

Advanced

For students with substantial Iyengar Yoga experience who can do Sirsasana with intelligence for five minutes, who can kick up into Adho Mukha Vrksasana (Full Arm Balance) and Pincha Mayurasana, and push up into Urdhva Dhanurasana (Upward Bow) or are progressing in that direction. Sirsasana is taught away from the wall and variations are introduced. Independent practice should be well established.

Ageless Yoga

This class is focused on building strength and flexibility in all the right places for those bodies experiencing the effects of age and gravity.
 
It is also appropriate for students of any age who need a slower-paced class and those recovering from injury / illness.

Yoga for Healing the Back

This class is for those experiencing all types of back issues and postural problems including lordosis, kyphosis and scoliosis, herniation, sciatic pain and sacroiliac pain. In this class we will teach:

  • ways to lengthen your spine and move out of habitual movement patterns that are causing you to experience pain,
  • basic actions and prop adjustments appropriate to your back injury/chronic condition,
  • Yogic coping mechanisms for dealing with the mental and emotional effects of chronic pain and the means to achieve and sustain a balanced state of mind.

All levels are welcome, including Beginners. Students should email Holly to schedule a phone call prior to attending.

Beginner

This class is for those who are new to Yoga or the Iyengar method. The focus is on standing poses, arm work and seated poses. Forward bending, twisting and backbending is introduced. Students are introduced to their bodies and taught how to relax deeply.

Continuing Beginner

For students who have completed several sessions of Yoga Basics or are new to the Iyengar method but have prior experience. Prone backbendings, basic abdominal asanas are introduced and new forward extensions and twists are added. Salamba Sarvangasana (shoulder stand) and Halasana is learned in a progressive manner.

Intermediate

For students who are ready to deepen their already established Yoga practice. Students have been well prepared to learn Sirsasana (Headstand) and variations in Salamba Sarvangasana (Shoulderstand) is introduced.

Restorative / Pranayama

Breath control

Restorative poses soften the pelvic and abdominal organs, open the lungs, and replenish the heart. They bring a deep sense of inner stillness to the throat, ears, eyes and brain and release chronically held tension in the nerves. Once the body is open and the mind is still, the practice of Pranayama lights up the pathway to the heart.


Yoga is for everyone. Iyengar Yoga classes are offered to all level students, from beginners to advanced. Certified Iyengar Yoga Teachers make the healing practice of yoga accessible to all through the use of skillful instruction, yoga props, modifications and hands-on adjustments. The philosophy of yoga and its positive effect on our daily lives is incorporated into each class.
