Introduction to Iyengar Yoga
Beginners in Iyengar Yoga. Even those with a yoga practice will find this class helpful in understanding how Iyengar Yoga works. It is designed to acquaint students with the fundamentals of yoga postures to develop a strong yoga practice. The foundation of Level 1 poses are methodically taught and time is taken to assure that each student develops an understanding of the poses. Some may choose to repeat the intro class before moving on to drop-in Level 1 classes. Many beginning students will also do fine in any level 1 class.
For all students new to yoga. This class introduces you to the fundamental principals of yoga. Focusing on standing and sitting asanas. Including Sarvangasana (shoulder stand).
This class is a bridge between level 1 and 2
For students who are well practiced in Level I. Standing poses are refined.Introduced are Sirsasana (head balance), Adho Mukha Vrksasna (hand stand, backbends and pranayama.
Level 3 classes are for students who are experienced in the method of Iyengar Yoga and confident in the practice of inversions. Independent practice should be well established .
Why does The Daley Practice have classes at different levels?
Iyengar Yoga is a progressive practice. This means that each class builds upon your knowledge of the last class. Each level builds upon your knowledge of the poses at the previous level. Every new action learned is a small step rather than a huge leap as you develop strength, flexibility and above all, self-knowledge.
Iyengar says we learn when we have an open heart and an open mind. The practice of yoga is about “stilling the fluctuations of the mind”. We use the body as physical therapy to help us do that.
Why does Iyengar Yoga not do general level classes?
Beginners are overwhelmed, can get injured, and learn more slowly.
Regular practitioners of Iyengar yoga cannot progress.
The progressive nature of the practice and its beneficial effects is slowed down.
Our teachers are trained to work from a syllabus that comes from the Ramamani Memorial Institute of Iyengar Yoga in Pune, India designed by BKS Iyengar.
