Yogah cittavrtti nirodhah
Yoga is the cessation of the movements in the mind.
Here we teach Iyengar Yoga. Iyengar yoga is a systematic approach to the asanas and pranayamas developed by yoga master B.K.S. Iyengar.
In Iyengar Yoga the emphasis is placed on alignment of the body, mind and breath. The class is artfully sequenced so the student can begin to experience inner harmony and quiet and feel energized. The classes are arranged monthly to cover all categories of poses.
Iyengar Yoga is known for alignment of the skeleton, for a proper stretch of the muscles, tendons and ligaments and proper placement of the organic body. Props are introduced to educate the body.
