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 experience in 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 experience in the Level 1 class. 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.
