Iyengar Yoga Foundation Class 5
This class refines and integrates the standing and seated poses from Classes 1 to 4, continuing to build on the strength in your arms, legs, and core. In this sequence you are introduced to Hip-Openers to allow mobility, good stretches and flexibility around your hips. 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 re-fresh 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.
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.
Start off your yoga experience with thorough alignment and breath-work instructions. John Norris is a certified Iyengar teacher well-known for his clear verbal instructions, and his ability to bring students deeper in yoga postures. You need a yoga mat, a belt or strap, a bolster, a chair, 2-4 blankets, and wall-space.
This is a beginners / foundation level class and is 63 minutes in length.
