Intro to Iyengar Yoga with Sachiko Nishizawa Willis

Iyengar Yoga is based on the teachings of the yoga master B.K.S. Iyengar (1918-2014), author of many books including the classic yoga treatise Light on Yoga. It is known for its emphasis on precision in action and alignment, which not only develops strength, flexibility, and stamina, but also fosters mental and emotional strength and peace of mind. In this class, Sachiko will introduce you to the fundamentals of yoga postures in the Iyengar way: basic standing, sitting, introductory inversion, and restorative postures. No prior experience necessary. Please bring a yoga mat.
