Focus: This weeks class puts some of the main Iyengar Yoga restorative poses into a sequence that is completed within 45 minutes. It contains classic chest opening poses like setu bandha sarvangasana, and rejuvenating inversions such as viparita karani. Breath awareness is featured in an upright cross leg position, and then a chest opening version of savasana completes the class.
The class also covers the basics of prop use in restorative yoga. The time duration of the class is long enough to bring about change in terms of reducing stress levels, but short enough to fit into a busy schedule. It will suit newer students as well as more experienced practitioners.
