Iyengar Yoga for Beginners: 6-part course
A practically prop-free, easy-to-follow 6-part course that will introduce you to the basics of Iyengar yoga.
In this course
Iyengar Yoga for Beginners (No Props) Session 1
This is the first session of a 5-week Beginners course, where we use only a mat and a towel (and perhaps a book) as minimal props.
Iyengar Yoga for Beginners (No Props) Session 2
The second session of the Beginners course will continue with some shoulder-opening poses, a review of the standing poses, and a few more sitting pose options to open into the hips and groins.
Iyengar Yoga for Beginners (No Props) Session 4
As you become more familiar with the poses, you may find that you start to understand and remember the instructions given about how to come into the pose.
Iyengar Yoga for Beginners (No Props) Session 5
In this sequence you will go through the first part of the session a little more quickly: Dog Pose on the breath, repeating several times, all the standing poses done up to now, once each, and then adding in a twisting standing pose, Parivrtta Trikonasana, Reverse Triangle pose, introduced dynamically, on the breath.
About the course
The aim of this course is to lay the foundations for those who are new to Iyengar Yoga so that you can build up a base and get an idea of what Iyengar Yoga is, without having to invest in more than a yoga mat.
