Take a journey into the body to discover what happens each time we take a breath.  From the architecture of our ribs to the function our our abdominal muscles, each part of our anatomy plays an important role.  Learn how the bandhas, yoga’s system of postural engagement, utilizes your body to its fullest potential.  Become familiar with potential challenges to the breath and bandhas, including healing from abdominal surgery, childbirth, chronic coughing or asthma.  This class will help us find a deeper understanding of what is working under our skin and breath a little deeper.

A weekend devoted to the study of Iyengar Yoga. BKS Iyengar is, perhaps, the most important figure in bringing yoga, as we know it, to the Western world. Learn what distinguishes Iyengar yoga from other methods, how it has evolved over the years and continues to evolve.

The sessions will use an integrated approach that focuses on four topics central to the Iyengar system:

1. Props – Props are not just for making poses easier! Learn the why and how of prop use including blankets, blocks, bolsters, belts, chairs, ropes, and walls.
2.  Alignment – Alignment refers to more than the physical state of an asana. It is also a connection of the body, mind, and breath. Learn how to observe alignment in others and in your own practice.

3.  Inversions – Inversions are a fundamental component of Iyengar yoga. Learn inversion safety and preparation to gain confidence, enhance your inversion practice, and explore basic variations.

4.  Pranayama – The practice of pranayama is essential for intermediate yoga students. Explore supine and seated pranayama with a variety of techniques.
