Intro to Iyengar Yoga with Jeff Perlman

Is the idea of being in a yoga class intimidating? If you are looking for a more gradual, in-depth introduction to Iyengar yoga with similar newcomers, then Goorus Yoga’s Intro to Iyengar workshop may be just what you need. This two-hour event is perfect for people new to the practice of yoga, or for people who wish to continue practicing yoga but may have developed injuries during more vigorous vinyasa flow-type classes. Jeff Perlman will introduce you to the Iyengar technique which emphasizes precision and alignment, and quality of movement over quantity of movement. Props, like bricks, belts and blankets, will be used to enhance awareness of the posture (asana) and to ensure joint safety. In this workshop, we will practice basic yoga poses and several variations to aid learning. Ideal for people of all ages, ability, and mobility.
