Preparing for Inversions:  An Iyengar Yoga Workshop

Preparing for Inversions: An Iyengar Yoga Workshop

Inversions are an essential component of Iyengar Yoga practice. Sālamba Śīrṣāsana (“king of āsanas”) and Sālamba Sarvāṅgāsana (“queen of āsanas”) restore vibrancy and tranquility to our embodiment. Together, both help to build physiological health and vitality, create hormonal balance and emotional stability, strengthen the spine, quieten the nervous system, and nurture the organic body.

This workshop will provide a foundation for preparing the body and mind to practice inversions in a safe and effective manner. Through the exploration of key preparatory postures, students will learn the fundamental actions required for Śīrṣāsana and Sarvāṅgāsana. Emphasis will be on developing firmness in the legs, and preparing the neck and shoulders. Variations will be presented for different levels of practice, as well as for those with injuries or other physical conditions. The workshop is not suitable for those completely new to yoga. Some previous experience with Iyengar Yoga is recommended. Class size is limited.

Cost: $45

Yoga for a Healthy Back

Yoga for a Healthy Back

In the Yoga Sūtras, Patañjali writes, heyaṁ duḥkham anāgatam (II.16)

“Pains that are dormant may manifest at a later time and can be prevented through the regular practice of yoga. The practice of yoga helps also in building up strength and power to endure the pains which cannot be cured.” B.K.S. Iyengar, Core of the Yoga Sūtras

As an art and science, yoga provides the opportunity for mental stability and physical vibrancy. Dedicated practice with adherence to the key principles of Iyengar Yoga – alignment, precision, timing, sequencing, and modifying via props – can also provide for healing and management of certain conditions. Lower back pain is one of the most common and chronic ailments today.

In this workshop, students will:

* Review general anatomy of the spine;

* Learn how to modify basic standing, seated, inverted, and supine āsanas in order to promote low back health and manage pain;

* Practice prānāyāma and passive poses which can help to create quietness and ease tension; and

* Receive a home practice sequence tailored to those with lower back pain.

Eligibility: Limited to students of Iyengar Yoga. This course is suitable for beginner students, but not for those completely new to yoga. Those with acute injuries are not eligible.

Cost: $40

To register, please email: purnima.dev@gmail.com
