IT IS WHILE PRACTICING YOGA
ASANAS THAT YOU LEARN THE
ART OF ADJUSTMENT.
--B.K.S. IYENGAR

B.K.S. IYENGAR WAS A LIVING EMBODIMENT OF YOGA.
HIS EXPERTISE WAS UNPARALLELED AND HE INSPIRED
THE YOGA CIRCLE STAFF WITH HIS LIFELONG
COMMITMENT TO THE ART AND SCIENCE OF YOGA.

THE STUDENT IN THE POSE HAS TO HAVE AN
INNER JOURNEY. AT THE BEGINNING, THE POSE
IS AN OUTER JOURNEY.
--GEETA IYENGAR, LAS VEGAS 2007, THE JOURNEY

Workshops
Iyengar Yoga with a Chair

SUN Oct 14: 2 – 5 pm $60

JOIN US!!! Register Online

A chair is a very helpful tool to practice/understand the asanas; the ancients used vines to hang from trees and to develop seated poses. The benefits of using a chair include:

1. Establishing better alignment in familiar and more difficult postures

2. Alignment facilitates understanding

3. Practice of complex poses breeds discrimination and develops keen focus

This is an all levels workshop, appropriate for beginners and challenging for more seasoned practitioners

Patrina Dobish, Iyengar Certified Intermediate Junior 2 Instructor (CIYT) and C-IAYT – Certified Yoga Therapist, regularly studies with senior Iyengar instructors. Her everyday practice continues to bring new insights and joy. As a teacher Patrina injects humor then guides students into keen focus. Be prepared to have fun.

Manouso Manos

Nov 16 – 18
Register Online
Manouso Manos is one of the most capable and experienced Senior Iyengar teachers in the United States. He began his studies with Sri BKS Iyengar in 1976 and, in 1984, served as chairperson of the First International Iyengar Yoga Convention. After 20+ trips to Pune, India and 42 years of personal practice, his understanding and insights into Iyengar Yoga are transmitted with authenticity and precision. Methodical in his teaching, Manouso develops a strong foundation in the asana, while progressively building refinements in the pose. His sense of humor and sensitivity shine through as his dynamic and challenging teaching style moves you beyond perceived limits.
