About this pro
Iyengar yoga classes are methodical and a sequential practice. In an Iyengar class, you could expect to focus on the details and correct alignment in postures, use of props to enable the students to deepen their experience in the poses safely, and usually a strong standing pose sequence. Standing poses are the foundation to the Iyengar method and students continue to practice them at every level. Also, expect to be introduced to handstand (Adho Mukha Vrksana), elbo balance (Pincha Mayurasana), headstand (Sirsasana), shoulder stand (Sarvangasana), and many variations thereof, depending on the level of the class. Prenatal classes are taught in the same tradition except that many modifications are introduced, as well as, restorative poses for deep relaxation.
