New Students



Wear shorts or footless tights. Clothes that allow for ease in movement but are not baggy are ideal. It is particularly important that the teacher can see the alignment of the knees, ankles, elbows and spine.

Come to class with an empty stomach.

The studio opens ten minutes before class begins.

Students arriving ten minutes after a class begins cannot be admitted.

Please let your teacher know if you have any injuries or special conditions before the class. Women who are on their menstrual cycle should also inform the teacher before class, so that the sequence can be modified for safe practice.

All students must agree to the terms and conditions listed below.

Which class is right for me?


The basis of the Iyengar Yoga method is taught in standing poses, shoulder stand, and other fundamental postures. We recommend that students unfamiliar with Iyengar Yoga take this class before continuing to the higher levels.

Basic postures are refined and Salamba Sarvangasana (shoulder stand), Sirsasana (headstand), full arm balance, backbends, and twists are introduced.


For students with substantial Iyengar Yoga training who are strong in standing postures, able to do Sirsasana with confidence for five minutes and can push up into Urdhva Dhanurasana. Sirsasana variations, intermediate postures, and seated Pranayama are taught. Independent practice should be well established.

Individual Instruction

Private tuition is an excellent option for those who wish to [earn yoga but are restricted by their schedules or physical considerations. It is also beneficial to those who attend regular classes, but wish to spend intensive time looking at a particular issue, limitation or pose. Available by appointment.
