Iyengar Yoga Foundation Class 2
This 2nd in a set of 7 classes builds on the foundation work in Class 1 – introducing new standing postures and seated twists, and giving more detailed alignment. This class provides a complete practice for the whole body.
This program is an excellent foundation course on the fundamental yoga asanas (postures). Ideal for those new to yoga, and a perfect re-fresher course for experienced yogis wanting to brush-up on their alignment.
The Iyengar style of yoga is a static style that is known for it’s attention to anatomical alignment. It is also known for the use of props which not only allow muscle groups to release tension and tightness, but more importantly, it accommodates for differences in body types and structure. You need a yoga mat, a belt or strap, a bolster, a chair, 2-4 blankets, and wall-space.
Each class in this series builds on the class before, adding extra poses and clear instructions. We recommend that you repeat each class as many times as you like before moving on to the next class.
Start off your yoga experience with thorough alignment and breath-work instructions. John Norris (certified Iyengar teacher) is a masterful teacher well-known for his clear verbal instructions, and his ability to bring students deeper in yoga postures.
This is a beginners / foundation level class and is 67 minutes in length.
