Iyengar Yoga

B.K.S. Iyengar

 

Marcia teach yoga according to the Iyengar Yoga Tradition.  Iyengar yoga is a form of Hatha Yoga that emphasizes alignment, precision, and strength.  That means Precision, Alignment and Strength are the focus of my teaching. In Iyengar yoga, there is a strong emphasis on sequencing of asanas to warm up body and mind and progressively increase for more demanding yoga asanas from beginning to end.  Sequencing allows for a compact, rounded, complete practice that works the whole being.

Iyengar yoga is particularly suitable for beginners as they learn the foundations of yoga, how to practice safely, and gradually built confidence for advancement in their practice as well as to practice any style of yoga. When we practice yoga with a Certified Iyengar yoga teacher you can be sure you are practicing with a highly trained teacher as the Iyengar yoga teaching training is the most comprehensive training a teacher can undergo. So, welcome to Yoga Essence practice.
