Saturday Workshop, November 15, 1:30-4:30pm

Laryngitis forced the cancellation of October’s workshop, so we are offering it again in November. The focus is standing postures, viewed from different perspectives. They develop strength, flexibility and awareness, and prepare the student for more a complex and challenging practice. The workshop welcomes students with one year of Iyengar yoga experience. Fee is $45 by November 9, or $55 afterwards. Registration is now open online and at the studio.
