Alignment-based and Iyengar yoga teaches each student how to practice yoga poses with optimal alignment. Results include increased strength, flexibility and vital energy. Others are improved breathing, circulation, organ and endocrine functions. This mindful practice cultivates an overall sense of inner balance, vitality, and well-being; the nervous system is brought into balance. This method is directly carried over into the daily tasks of standing, sitting, and moving in all endeavors as posture is greatly improved. Each class focuses on a particular aspect of asana practice during which yoga is investigated in detail. Non-dogmatic ancient yoga philosophy and science underlies the teachings. Fun is had as well! ALL CLASSES INCLUDE THERAPEUTIC BACK CARE.
