January Intensive at The Balmain Iyengar Yoga Studio

About the course

An intense course for experienced students and those in teacher training. Filmed at the Balmain Iyengar Yoga Studio in January 2022 and taught by Pixie Lillas.

In this course, students will be able to explore such concepts as expansion, release, grounding, and observation, while consolidating their knowledge and expression of poses from different pose groups: standing, forward bends, backbends, and restorative. By going deeper and holding poses for longer stretches of time, students will have the opportunity to get to know each pose on a different level and bring a new layer of understanding and awareness to their practice.

The course will start with a restorative class, in which we will lay the foundations for the other classes. We will see how we can increase our capacity for extension by using our breath. After three strenuous and powerful sessions, we will conclude the course with another restorative class, which, unlike the first one, will be more focused on letting go and relaxing.
