More about iyengar

From Stephanie Sandleben, at Kula Yoga: Stephanie: So, in my own practice, I’ve been thinking about the difference between sensation, and tapas. And realizing that they’re not the same thing. Rough quote, I’m forgetting more of it, but her words hit the spot. It’s taken me years to realize that yoga is not the Marines, […]

Lara BrunnLast night I treated myself to a drop-in class at the Iyengar studio nearby. I’ve been feeling a little wonky and uneven in my poses lately, and haven’t been able to figure out why.

(My favorite story about Isaac: He’s teaching at Exhale, and tells the class to come into a Squat. “If your heels don’t touch the ground, put […]

Leslie Kaminoff at the Breathing ProjectI just had to make a quick post about the open house I attended Wednesday at The Breathing Project. Leslie Kaminoff gave an amazing lecture on breathing and anatomy in yoga, I’m seriously considering signing up for his anatomy classes instead of heading for the Iyengar Institute.

Michelle, the instructorYesterday I finally made it to the Intro class at the Iyengar Institute. Before you take any classes there, you must take a 90-minute intro class covering the basics. They only hold it once a month, and last time it was sold out. I forgot to bring my camera, so I’ve included some Flickr photos […]
