Iyengar Yoga Workshop
October 3 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm| $40
Iyengar yoga is a progressive, innovative, and intelligent approach to the practice of yoga. By paying close attention to anatomical details and the alignment of each posture, BKS Iyengar, the forefather of this world renown system, has developed the precision into this ancient practice.
This type of practice develops and cultivates strength, endurance, stability, awareness, and flexibility while emphasizing correct body alignment in each asana (posture).
The specific use of props such as blankets, bricks, and belts help individualize and modify the asana according to the student’s need, and therefore has a therapeutic effect for the partitioner. In the way,the students are able to safely, and intelligently build and develop their practice of yoga. Iyengar’s unique approach to teaching asana from its foundational level and using props to individualize the asanas to meet each student’s need, allows for students of all ages and physical abilities to benefit from the practice of yoga.
Maryam Askari values the power of our mind as our greatest resource, and she uses asana and breath focus and still the mind. She believes, “where our thoughts go, our energy flows.” For her, this is the heart of the Iyengar yoga system.
Maryam’s students throughout the world have said that they feel they are personally attended to and their practices have advanced brilliantly. Maryam approaches each class as a brand new opportunity to connect with her students and guide them individually for their specific need.
