Class Description

In this Iyengar yoga class, you'll focus on precision of alignment and safe progression in the following standing poses: prasarita padottanasana (wide-legged standing forward bend), parsvottanasana (intense stretch of the sides of the body pose), urdhva hastasana (upward salute pose), uttanasana (intense stretch pose), and virabhadrasana I (warrior I). You'll also explore adho mukha svanasana (downward facing dog pose) and chatush padasana (four-footed pose).

Much of this practice is at the wall, and you'll conclude the experience in savasana (corpse pose).
