This class teaches the foundational poses of Iyengar Yoga, specifically, Tadasana or Mountain pose. This grounding pose serves as a template for understanding almost all yoga poses. Learn the basic variations of this pose that build into some of the beginner postures like Trikonasana, Parsvakonasana, and Dandasana. Props required: Chair.
Build on the learnings of external rotations of the legs from the previous class with variations of Tadasana or Mountain pose. This class focuses on neutral and internal rotation of the legs, moving step-by-step through the alignment in basic poses like Warrior I, Parsvottonasana or Pyramid, then Seated Baddha Konasana.
Take what you learned from class one and two, and build on it by learning the mechanics of twisting. As a progressive program, this final class will be the least amount of talking and the most doing. Test your arm and leg muscle memory in Down Dog, Standing Forward Fold, Standing Wide Leg Forward Fold with Twists, and Seated Twists. Finish with a solid foundation of precision, alignment, and awareness to bring to any Iyengar class or other style of yoga that peaks your interest.
