Named for yoga master Sri B.K.S. Iyengar, Iyengar yoga classes move thoughtfully through traditional postures. Holding poses longer allows time to carefully dissect correct alignment and very precise actions in the body, often with the help of props. Subtle instructions that at first may seem inaccessible can wake up the furthest reaches of the body with consistent practice. Come prepared to learn, pay attention, and follow specific instructions as you open and strengthen your body and mind.
Practice two poses that are wonderful for days that you feel tired or like you're coming down with something. If you don't have blankets, use beach towels. If you don't have a bolster, use a thick cushion. Recommended props: 2 blankets, 2 bolsters, 1 strap
