The following class types will give you an idea of what is offered at Yoga Journey Collingwood,
but for a picture of what is currently available, check out our class schedule.
These classes are mixed level classes that work through various presentations of each asana allowing students to decide how far they want to go in their practice given their current level of practice and/or any physical or other restrictions. These classes are dynamic and experiential and full of tips and techniques on how to customize and evolve your practice.
These classes are designed for those newer to Iyengar Yoga, and accommodate all levels of fitness. They introduce the foundations of Iyengar Yoga, such as proper alignment and sequencing, and develop students’ mobility, strength, flexibility and stability. These dynamic classes focus largely on standing poses, seated poses, forward bends and other fundamental postures including those from the shoulderstand family.
For those students who are well practiced in Salamba Sarvangasana (shoulderstand) and other level 1 postures, these classes add further refinements and additional new poses including Sirsasana (headstand). Pranayama (breath awareness and modification) is also introduced.
For students with substantial Iyengar Yoga training who are strong in postures and can do Sirsasana with confidence for five minutes. Sirsasana variations, intermediate postures, and seated pranayama are taught.
This class emphasizes poses that soothe the nervous system. The practices explored will be supported with the use of props, and poses will be held for durations that encourage rest, recovery and restoration. Focus will be given to the breath and the fundamentals of Pranayama.
