Iyengar Yoga Therapeutics Class
Fridays, 2:00-4:00pm

This is an on-going class for yoga students with chronic or complex conditions that prevent them from participating in a general class. Some examples are joint pain or dysfunction, heart or blood pressure conditions, cancer and recovery from surgeries that require modifications beyond the scope of a general class. Yoga therapeutic methods are based on principles of yoga, scientific data, and the experience of Yoga teachers, and they are not, as yet considered standard treatments in mainstream medicine or physical therapy.

The class is designed to work specifically and personally with each student to:

 •  Manage pain and discomfort
 •  Increase strength, flexibility, and range of motion
 •  Address specific chronic conditions in a progressive way to enhance optimum health and well-being
 •  Learn the art of relaxation

To be considered for the course, students must fill out an online application and be willing to commit to eight consecutive weeks of class.
