Basic Beginners Course II – Class 8

Focus: Your overall posture by this stage, has likely begun to improve. Having stronger leg muscles, and more open hips and shoulders helps to achieve this. Notice how having stronger legs starts to make you lower back feel more supported in the coming weeks. A group of leg strengthening poses are included in this sequence. This class also looks at techniques for improving Adho Mukha Svanasana (Downward Facing Dog Pose). Start to feel the rejuvenating effect of elevating your legs and relaxing at the end of each class.

    I often have difficulty motivating myself to move but once I complete a class I am so encouraged by how much better I feel. Thank you for offering Iyengar classes.

      No matter how you feel when you start, you always feel better when you complete a class.
