Iyengar yoga concentrates on correct alignment within the poses
to allow the muscles to engage and protect the joints. This is great
for protecting existing injuries and conditions, as well as helping to
prevent the occurrence of new ones. Poses are held to gradually increase
strength as well as flexibility, and allows time for the mind to
concentrate on what is happening in each posture.
Each week the sequences will be different, allowing the student to experience a range of different postures and combinations of poses. Iyengar Yoga teachers are required to complete years of rigorous training before sitting for assessment to become a teacher. They are then required to continue professional development with senior teachers each year. Your Iyengar Yoga teacher Juanita Brokas is well trained, and will instruct you throughout the class.
