Iyengar Yoga Intensive
Presented by: K-Lea Gifford
Deepen your personal practice of Iyengar Yoga. Active morning asana (postures) enlivens the body/mind for self-exploration. Afternoons comprised of pranayama (breathwork) and restorative poses create the platform for deep relaxation and dharana, the direct communion with spirit and the ultimate reason to practice yoga.
Participants are encouraged to bring a translation of Patanjali's Yoga Sutras as all eight limbs of yoga will be touched upon.
All levels welcome.
