B.K.S. Iyengar wrote that “Vinyasa means separating and putting down or placing in a sequential order,” and he outlined several different patterns that practitioners could use to “explore the subtlety and firmness in each asana.” That is, in iyengar yoga, vinyasa encompasses much more than movement from pose to pose. In involves deliberate, creative ways of sequencing the asanas.

In this workshop, we will explore several different vinyasa patterns laid out by B.K. S. Iyengar in an effort to penetrate more deeply into a few standing, seated, and inverted poses. “Alignment is stability and entering the dark caves of the body is enlightenment,” Iyengar wrote, and we will work to experience that through an exploration of a number of sequencing methodologies.

The morning session will be devoted to standing and seated poses and the afternoon session to inverted poses. Students should have at least a year of Iyengar yoga practice and be familiar with inversions to attend the afternoon session.
