Hatha Yoga works through the mastery of the body and breath. It involves a system of asanas (postures) that train through breathing and relaxation techniques.
Basics: For beginners and those who want to improve alignment and focus.
Beginner (Level I) – Well rounded class for beginners and those who prefer a slower pace.
Intermediate/Advanced (Level II) – Rigorous, fast paced. Experience necessary.
The Iyengar method of Yoga is initially learned through the in-depth study of asanas (posture and pranayama (breath control). Iyengar yoga has over 200 classical yoga Asanas and 14 different types of Pranayamas (with variations of many of them) from the simple to the incredibly difficult.
These have been structured and categorized so as to allow a beginner to progress surely and safely from basic postures to the most advanced as they gain flexibility, strength, and sensitivity in mind, body, and spirit.
As all bodies are different and people have different weaknesses and strengths, props such as wooden blocks, chairs, blankets, and belts are used to help one adjust or support oneself in the different postures so that one can work in a range of motion that is safe and effective.
