THE ELEMENTS FOR A YOGA PRACTICE

Walking the Path

Learning yoga is a process and progressive. The length of time a student studies at one level does not depend on physical ability but more on regularity of practice, maturity, commitment to learning and discussion with teacher

All new students begin in ESSENTIALS except those that have been studying Iyengar yoga with a certified Iyengar yoga teacher. Regular practitioners of Iyengar yoga visiting San Miguel are welcome in any class.

THE INQUIRY

In this “open house” session or phone contact, we have a conversation about your interests, goals and I recommend a course and class to begin.  You get a chance to speak with current students and ask any questions you might have.  Jan 8th, 10 and 12th (see below)

THE ESSENTIALS

You learn the fundamental postures that provide you with a firm foundation with a focus on building stability, strength, and mobility. Students gain a beginning understanding of the principles of the Iyengar method. Those with physical limitations or conditions learn how to work in class with proper support. Basic benefits of the postures are taught.

THE EXPLORATION

Once familiar with the actions of the previous syllabus of poses students move to this level where the instruction focuses not just on form but a deeper connection between poses. Students at this level continue to develop their inversion practice. They become proficient in the set up and practice of Sarvangasana and begin the practice of Sirsasana (headstand). It is expected that students know the Sanskrit names of the poses of the previous syllabus and continue to learn the names at this level. Those with physical conditions or limitations continue to learn how to adapt for their needs. Students at this level begin a self-practice applying lessons in classes to their home practice. Pranayama is introduced at this level

The Individual Path– Some students due to schedueling, learning preferences or physical condition or situations may be recommended for one-on-one sessions.

The Inner Path– study of restorative poses that prepare a student for pranayama practice

The Study– a weekly (free) study group where we apply the Yoga Sutras of Pantanjali to our practice and our life.

Advanced (teacher permission)- 1 hour advanced class. Students need to be familiar with Iyengar Yoga terminology and be capable of more complexity and depth in movement. Students should be taken other classes concurrently. This should not be your only class in your schedule.
