Yogic philosophical precepts of Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras, which detail moral and ethical growth and responsibility, are the underlying foundation of the system. Techniques are taught according to the methods developed by Shri BKS Iyengar which focus equally on strength, flexibility, stamina, and balance with an acute emphasis on correct alignment.
We highly encourage our students of every level to practice regularly between lessons. It is suggested that students should repeat each level of class, several times, before moving up. Please feel free to register for more than one class a week.
