Iyengar Yoga Foundation Class 6
This class brings about integration with classes 1 to 5, and introduces you to Utkatasana (Chair Pose) working on your legs and core, and Vrksasana (Tree Pose) a balancing pose. This class focuses on lengthening and releasing tension around the spine, and staying active yet relaxed in the poses.
This set of 7 classes is an excellent foundation course on the fundamental yoga asanas (postures). Ideal for those new to yoga, as well as a perfect re-fresher course for regular practitioners interested in refining their alignment.
The Iyengar style of yoga is a static style 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 67 minutes in length.
