New to yoga


This class is taught by:

Patrick Carroll

When I took my first yoga class, I had no idea what I was doing and how deeply it would transform my life. Starting with vinyasa, and yin, my quest for deeper knowledge of the subject of yoga naturally led me to the practice and teachings of BKS Iyengar. The depth, intelligence, and directness of the Iyengar system make transformation possible for everyone. I have been a certified RYT since 2008 and became a certified Iyengar Introductory level I/II yoga teacher in 2015.

Matthew Lurie

A Chicago native, Matthew discovered yoga in 2007 while working late nights at a sedentary desk job. He was struck by the instantaneous shifts in both body and perspective and has since found yoga to be an essential part of his own health discovery. Matthew is an RYT 500 teacher and recently received his Iyengar certification studying under Carolyn Belko.
Beginning a yoga practice can be a challenging, rewarding and life-changing journey. Having a firm grasp of the basics is essential for continued growth, development and stability in a yoga practice. In this class, students will be instructed in the foundational standing and sitting poses as taught by BKS Iyengar with the aim of developing strength in the arms and legs, flexibility of joints and ligaments, increased body awareness and improved posture while reducing stress and tension. Students will also be instructed in studio etiquette and the use of props to enhance and enrich their practice. Students will be sitting on the floor at the beginning of each session, and classes are designed for those who can get up from and down onto the floor on their own power with ease.
 
This class is offered every Wednesday & Friday at 11:15a-12:45a
