Each of my classes are built and designed around a certain type of asana (standing, backbends, forward bends, restorative and pranayama*). They are well-planned and sequenced so each student aquires depth and understanding of the asanas, as well as a true practice with their body, mind, and spirit. As Geeta Iyengar says, “Thus different groups of asana [postures] help develop firmness, fitness, pliability, strength, poise, balance, alertness, and mental peace.”
*Please note, the last week of classes during any given month are geared toward a quiet, restorative practice that most likely leads to pranayama (breathing technique).
