Iyengar Yoga and the Practice of Standing Poses (Class 1)

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).
