Detroit Sound Immersion
Yoga for Uterine Health
Exploration of the fundamental asanas. Encouraged for students new to yoga or new to Iyengar Yoga.
Continued exploration of fundamental asanas. Students in Beginner+ classes should be familiar (though not necessarily fluent) with the asanas in Sanskrit.
Continuing Iyengar Yoga students with at least 6 months' study. Headstand and other inversions are introduced.
Experienced Iyengar Yoga students with at least 1 year of consistent study. Expect refinements, more complex poses, plenty of inversions (5+ minute holds in Sirsasana and Sarvangasana), backbends, Padmasana variations, arm balances, and philosophy study. Openness, willingness, and ability to observe and learn are the most important criteria.
Supported, recuperative yoga poses to calm your nerves and quiet your mind.
Collaboration with musician Wanjira Makena, providing live accompaniment with singing bowls, chimes, and other instruments, while doing restorative asana.
Safe space to address specific uterine needs, such as pregnancy, postnatal, pelvic floor, menstrual and menopausal conditions.
4-week rotating focus on common areas of discomfort: Neck/shoulders, Low Back, Knees. Learn how to alleviate pain, and apply what you learn to home practice.
For beginning to advanced students, explore a wide array of asanas through creative use of the chair. Backless steel folding chair is ideal (for sale on a sliding scale through IYDC), but any firm armless chair is adequate. Video-on-demand available for monthly subscribers.
