Each group of Yoga postures develops the body in different yet reciprocal ways and has different qualities: grounding, energizing, strengthening, stimulating, calming. Yoga Classes at all levels devote time to relaxation. Once the body and mind are strong enough to sit or lie for extended periods without distraction, students learn Pranayama (Yogic breathing). No Yoga classes are the same: teachers select poses to emphasize the various aspects of the practice and their effects.
Iyengar Yoga has been described as meditation in action. Practicing the Yoga postures with awareness has an integrating effect and works to harmonize mind and body. For more information, please visit bksiyengar.com.
