SPECIALTY
 

Our Intermediate Class is for experienced students who have been through Ignite! classes or have practiced Iyengar Yoga before. Intermediate students are assumed to know how to practice Salamba Sarvangasana (Shoulder Stand). Sirsasana (Head Stand) will be introduced, or appropriate substitutions if necessary. Intermediate 2 students should be proficient in Shoulder Stand, Head Stand, or appropriate substitutions.

In all Intermediate classes we begin seated with an invocation to the Sage Patanjali. This is a Sanskrit chant to pay homage to the tradition of Patanjali yoga which goes back for thousands of years. The invocation brings us inward and helps us cultivate humility and reverence for the sacred subject of yoga.

Students should have a place to practice in their homes with clear wall space, mat, 2 blocks,3 Mexican or 5 Indian blankets,1 long belt, 1 short belt, 2 bolsters, and a backless yoga chair.

In all intermediate level classes we also schedule the last week of the month for restorative asanas and pranayama. Check the schedule for class times.

Pauline Schloesser
PHD, CIYT, IAYT

My interest in yoga has always been more than physical. Working with only the Sivananda Companion to Yoga book while in college, I loved how the postures made me feel –warm, light, supple, strong, and light-hearted.
