Class Descriptions

Class is a place to gather for camaraderie, fellowship and learning. The classes are designed to help all levels of students create and later maintain a home practice. The home practice is after all where the real gifts of yoga are discovered. Most students struggle to start and maintain a home practice – for this reason sequences and “homework” are given between classes. In all classes philosophical concepts are introduced and discussed.

Intro (Introduction to Iyengar Yoga): Suitable for students brand new to yoga or new to Iyengar Yoga. Introductions to standing and seated poses will be given.

Level 1: For students who have completed at least one session of the Intro class. Continued work on standing and seated poses with introductions to Salambha Sarvangasana (Shoulderstand) and Halasana (Plow Pose), or their alternatives.

Level 2: For students who have completed one session of Level 1. Building on knowledge from previous classes with introductions to forward bends, back bends, and Sirsasana (headstand).

Gentle: Ongoing slower pace class where poses are taught with more modifications and props to accommodate older students or those with mild chronic health conditions.

Pranayama: Meditative breath work. For those who are steady in their inversions.

Private Lessons: A group class is suitable for most people but occasionally a one-on-one lesson is necessary. A private yoga lesson is ideal for students who: 1) need help navigating a physical limitation or injury or 2) need help establishing or improving their home practice. One hour private lessons with Aaron are scheduled for Tuesday or Thursday afternoons. The fee is $70 / hour. Please contact Aaron directly to make arrangements.
