As kids we bounce around, run, and without blinking an eye, balance on our head. Maybe you’re even a product of the 80’s and did those cool breakdancing moves while spinning on your head.

The Iyengar approach develops systematic intelligence. It is progressive in nature, so each class will build from simple to more complex poses in a direct and clear manner.

Observation is an integral part of the experience. The skill of observation brings awareness. This develops Self knowledge as well as Self compassion.
Props may be used in poses to educate the body and bring support while learning something new.
