Iyengar Yoga Week

Join Kim in a week-long exploration of Iyengar Yoga. Iyengar Yoga is a method that is approachable and accessible to all levels of student. It is is a complete system that focuses on the practice of asana (postures) and pranayama (breath) with the ultimate aim of cultivating health, awareness, and inner peace, physically, mentally, and spiritually.
