Join Val for a 75 minute Pop Up class exploring the yoga tradition of Iyengar.
Iyengar Yoga places emphasis on accurate alignment and precision of execution. Poses are generally held longer as well, so that the effects of proper positioning can be more thoroughly understood. This class will focus on the strong foundation that is laid for effective yoga practice through proper understanding of the Standing poses.
I took my first Iyengar Yoga class in December of 1986, in my home town in southern Indiana. Since I was a musician, my mother thought that yoga would help me improve my musical endeavors. (Which it did!) When I moved from home in 1990, I continued to practice in earnest, mostly on my own, referring to BKS Iyengar's Light on Yoga. In 2001, I was accepted into the 3 year teachers training program at the Iyengar Institute. I began teaching in 2002, and by January 2004 became a full time teacher in the Los Angeles area. In August of 2008, I moved to New York City, where I taught until April of 2019. I have studied with the Iyengars in Pune India, and many noteworthy teachers in the states as well.
