This class is also taught by Sutat, and it incorporates traditional poses with an emphasis on deep breathing. The word “prana” means “life energy” in Sanskrit, so when we breathe in we are taking in “prana”. This class works to expand our breath, which will consequently expand and improve the quality of the vital life energy inside of us. This class is suitable for beginners and people of all levels!
Iyengar Yoga Plus
Mondays 9-10:15am, Wednesdays 8:30-9:35am
Iyengar Yoga is taught by Christa and the class is based on the teachings of B.K.S. Iyengar, one of the most prominent yoga teachers often referred to as the “father of modern yoga”. Iyengar Yoga is centered around precision and alignment of the body. This class often uses props to increase mobility, strength, and stability. It is suitable for all levels, as the props help to modify movements.
Taught by Jude, this class is a well-rounded practice that includes both standing and seated poses. While it is an active class, the poses are held through several breaths and allow for maximum muscle activation and stretch. Suitable for all levels!
