Focus: This class focusses on restorative poses that help to relax the abdominal region, and soothe the nervous system. This type of sequence is commonly practiced by women in the Iyengar method during menstruation. During this time inversions are avoided; as are poses that compress or harden the abdomen; and practice sequences are given an energy preserving emphasis.
