Iyengar Yoga Foundation Class 4
In this class, John integrates the poses from Classes 1 to 3, and introduces you to the basic movement in a Sun Salutation. The easy variation to Shoulder Stand is revisited and you are introduced to preparation work for other similar inversions.
This preparation work is designed to strengthen your arms and core-strength. You will also explore seated forward bends in this class that work on your hamstrings and flexibility.
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 refine 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. For this class you need – a yoga mat, a belt or strap, a bolster, a chair, 2-4 blankets, and wall-space.
Each class 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.
This is a beginners / foundation level class and is 73 minutes in length.
