Siobhan Sloane-Seale - Iyengar Yoga
Sundays 12:00-1:45pm | Intermediate Iyengar - Rope Focuses |
Free class January 14 | First set of 7 classes - January 21 to March 4 ** No Class March 11** | Second set of 7 classes - March 18 to April 29 | 7 classes = $119 | 14 classes = $224 | Drop-ins $22 (with permission only)
In this 105 minute class you will learn how to use the ropes and sling for basic poses such as chest opening, Urdhva Hastasana, standing poses, and also for more complex poses like inversions such as Adho Mukha Vrksasana (handstand preparation) and Sirsasana (headstand in the sling).
We will also practice poses without the ropes so that your body can integrate what the ropes teach you. The ropes teach your body the correct physical actions and therefore help you achieve the most benefits from each pose. Being supported in the poses allows you to go deeper and have a transformative experience of the pose. There will be time to ask questions during and after the class.
If you wish to drop-in please contact me in advance to get permission as there are limited spaces in this class and priority goes to students who pre-register. Come 15 minutes before class to sign in and check in with Siobhan about your practice.

Beginning yoga? Or want to deepen your practice? This mixed level class will teach you more than the basics.
Iyengar yoga is about raising your bodily intelligence. It’s about self-exploration and finding the correct alignment. Sometimes jokingly referred to as “furniture yoga”, the practice characteristically uses props such as wood and foam blocks, bolsters, chairs, straps, blankets and wall-mounted ropes to help open your body gently yet powerfully.
The props isolate muscles and bodily actions in order to focus attention to specific areas that need work. They also ensure that you’re doing your yoga poses with proper alignment to keep you feeling healthy, supported and strong in your practice.
Because of its low-impact focus on correct alignment and its use of supports, Iyengar accommodates a wide variety of bodies and levels of ability. It’s used therapeutically for rehabilitation from, and working with, pain and injury.
