PRACTICE

The class is an inward journey using the science of Raja Yoga. Explore Sun Salutations with bandhas and ujjayi breath, fundamentals of the Ashtanga yoga system taught by the late Pattabhi Jois. Follow intelligent sequencing from the Ashtanga and Iyengar traditions. The poses are held to explore expansion and extension and to allow the student time to incorporate Iyengar principles of precision and alignment. The teaching adjusts to the individual, a belief practiced in Viniyoga. This transcendental method of involution to achieve evolution will bring us in contact with our layers of existence, koshas, to realize awareness and consciousness necessary to experience sukkha.

B.K.S. Iyengar on teachers

The teacher should be clear, clever, confident, challenging, caring, cautious, constructive, courageous, comprehending, creative, completely devoted and dedicated to knowing the subject, considerate, conscientious, critical, committed, cheerful, chaste, and calm.  Teachers must be strong and positive in their approach.  They must be affirmative to create confidence in their pupils, and negative within their own practice and attitudes.  Teachers must always be learning.
