Find out why Iyengar Yoga Alignment is the Gold Standard of Yoga Systems.

Experience teacher training from Seattle's most experienced yoga teacher trainer.

Some of the Hallmarks of Iyengar Yoga are:

  • 1. The emphasis on precision of alignment in every pose.
  • 2. The specific and creative use of props that can help to individualize the practice to each student.
  • 3. The important feedback on practice that is given by well-trained competent teachers.
  • 4. Well structured sequences that help the student to progress and to gain awareness.
  • 5. Emphasis on developing the ability to work and stay in the poses in order to gain real benefit as compared to classes which are too fast to experience the full benefit of each pose and do not allow enough time to make adjustments and corrections.
  • 6. The emphasis on practicing a full-range of poses including the highly important inverted poses which are sadly not taught at"gym yoga" classes.

Please sign up early and arrive early for the class!
