About the Yoga
We teach Iyengar yoga based on the traditional method of BKS Iyengar, a Master teacher of 92 years of age. The Iyengar yoga guides students with precious instructions and details work the body as a whole based on the anatomical structure and function of the body. Emphasis on standing, inverted, forward bends, backbends, twist, and restorative with the use of props to assure optimal health, allowing students to work within their limitation. Our goal is to bring awareness to the whole body, respect your personal limitation to avoid injury the use of props guides you into the asana (posture) until you have reached flexibility to safely perform the asana.
Yoga is derived from the Sanskrit root yui meaning to bind, join attach to direct and concentrate one’s attention to use and apply. To join the power of mind, body and soul.
ASANA (pose’s posture)
Asana is an ancient practice of movement for the whole body forming poses to develop strength, flexibility, balance and stamina at the same time developing sensitive to the movement of the body, awareness, courage, and compassion.
First one must learn the shapes of the poses, learning their geometrical configuration, alignment and the direction of the stretches that are required to prevent injury, understanding the foundation of all postures to bring positive effects through body to the mind.
Classes are structured for everybody under the direction of trained yoga instructors in a professional and fully equipped studio.
Benefits of Home Practice
Joining a yoga class is just the beginning of the yoga journey. You attend class to receive instructions, direction on how to form the pose and detail of each Asana, gain sensitivity of the body, maintain the information. A home practice would benefit and soon discover the knowledge of each asana to progress in class
Progress will be made only through frequent practice to maintain the quality of the effects of each asana, more flexibility, stamina, reduce stress and develop strength.
Most reasons for not practicing:
- lack of time
- lack of space and facitilites
- lack of self-discipline to practice alone
- lack of advisory support from a teacher
If for only 15 minutes a day you would soon discover positive changes in your body and mind.
Ask your instructor for a list of asana’s to practice at your level. Your personal practice should be a choice and a chore.
