Iyengar Yoga teaches us how to identify and work from the foundation of a yoga posture. In a standing balancing pose class, we focus on foundational standing poses and link them to related but more advanced poses. In this class, we use Triangle Pose, Warrior 2, and Side Angle Pose (covered with in depth instruction in Introduction to Iyengar Yoga) in order to approach the standing balancing poses Vrksasana (Tree Pose) and Ardha Chandrasana (Half Moon Pose). Learn to feel as firm when you are balancing on one leg as you are when both feet are firmly planted on the ground in this class!
This back care Iyengar Yoga class will use a chair. You can use a yoga specific chair, or you can use a dining room chair that has a high back. Be sure you can plant your feet firmly on the ground when sitting. This sequence will include stretches and gentle spinal traction techniques, and will feel great for a lot of different bodies. It is a sequence that is particularly helpful for folks who have tight legs and back or scoliosis, people whose back gets sore when they bend forward in spinal flexion, and those who have spinal disk compression.
Work on improving your posture with Iyengar Yoga! Proper posture requires you to have firmly planted feet, firm and straight legs, a strong core, a lifted spine, and open chest and shoulders. This class will guide you through all of these points. You will use props, which will give you access to posture specific stretches. This class will leave you standing taller than when you began, and teach you tips on how to maintain your posture when you step off of your yoga mat. Enjoy!
