Level 1 Iyengar Yoga starts Saturday, Aug. 7th!
July 27, 2010
Sangha is adding a new Level 1 Iyengar Yoga class Saturday mornings 10:15-11:45am with Iyengar instructor Wendy Devitt!
About the class:
This class is focused on building a strong foundation of standing poses, forward bends, back bends, and the introduction of shoulder stand. Poses are held longer with an emphasis placed on correct alignment.
Wendy Devitt began practicing Iyengar yoga in Boston with Patricia Walden in 1997. She became amazed how props could be used to enhance and bring ease to the postures, and immediately fell in love with the precision and clarity of the method. In 2000, she attended Columbia University Teachers College, where she received her Masters Degree in Education, specializing in visually impaired students and now teaches this specialized population in the New York City Public Schools. Since attending the Teacher Training Program at the Iyengar Yoga Institute of New York City in 2006, Wendy has enjoyed combining her two specialties by teaching yoga to children and adults of all levels of ability, including those with visual impairments.
