Iyengar Yoga with Anna Rain
Iyengar yoga is characterized by dynamic, precise instruction and careful attention to the individual needs of each student. The practice of asana (poses) teaches control of the body. That control allows us to achieve greater sensitivity, awareness, and focus within ourselves, which we then use in further study of yoga (control of the breath; concentration; meditation).
Introductory Series (Intro/Level 1)
15 weeks Mondays Sept. 10th - Dec. 17th at 6:15PM - 7:45PM
NOTE: The first 4 weeks will be an Introductory class with Level 1 beginning on Oct. 8th. Continuing students are welcome to the Introductory class.
For students new to yoga and new to the Iyengar method. I introduce vocabulary — both verbal and physical—to equip the student for attendance in any Level I class. We also use props so that each student receives optimal benefit of every pose, regardless of flexibility or experience. No student is too small, too big, too old, or too stiff to benefit.
15 weeks Thursdays Sept. 6th - Dec. 20th at 6:15PM - 7:45PM
15 weeks Tuesdays Sept. 11th - Dec. 18th at 10:00AM - 11:00AM
Explores the basic categories of poses: standing poses; forward extensions; backward extensions; twists; inversions; restorative poses. A student can benefit from attending a Level I session a number of times; mastery of asana requires study for many years. I teach students to understand their individual physical challenges and adapt poses for themselves accordingly.
15 weeks Thursdays Sept. 6th - Dec. 20th at 8:00PM - 9:30PM
Intended for students who have extensive Iyengar experience and a dedicated home practice. More challenging poses are explored in depth, and students are expected to be able to care for their own physical condition within the context of practicing advanced poses.
60+ and Friends
15 weeks Thursdays Sept. 6th - Dec. 20th at 9:30AM - 11:00AM
Open to all students who appreciate more deliberate guidance in their understanding of the poses. New students are welcome at any time in this class.
15 weeks Mondays Sept. 10th - Dec. 17th at 4:30PM - 6:00PM
One on One Private Sessions
Uses principles of posture, breath, and relaxation with individual attention to your specific condition, often in ways not addressed in a group class or by traditional medical avenues. The practice—which often involves props—seeks to ease pain, explore flexibility, and deepen awareness and sensitivity in the connection of body and mind. Yoga therapy can benefit anyone, particularly those who are ill, pregnant, infirm, or elderly. By Appointment.
