Aligning Your Heart with Iyengar Yoga: Mindful Effort, Conscious Letting Go
Namastday Yoga 
113 San Vicente Blvd, Beverly Hills CA 90211

From 2002 until 2010 I was blessed with the opportunity to work directly with BKS Iyengar and his daughter Geeta. During this time my upper back and chest area were completely transformed leaving me with improved posture, more expansive breath and a more optimistic outlook on life. This transformation was the result of mindfully applying effort in correctly aligned poses and consciously letting go using restorative poses and pranayama.

During this workshop we will use Yoga Sutra II.47: “Perfection in an asana is achieved when the effort to perform it becomes effortless” as the guiding light of our asana, restoratives and pranayama practices. Additionally I will share some direct teachings from BKS Iyengar with all of you.

 When first that beauty stole my love from me. My crying kept the neighbors up all night. But now my love has grown, my crying ceased. The fire that gets most air will smoke least. 
~ Rumi

Surviving the loss or death of a loved one poses one of life’s most challenging situations. It is a uniquely personal and emotional journey many would rather not take. Yet when embarked upon consciously, intense growth and remarkable personal transformation are possible. At this workshop we will practice gentle grief specific yoga poses, which facilitate the process of letting go of loss and grief while honoring those who have left. Cultivating a compassionate and safe environment we will discuss coping with grief and loss while embracing the healing potential of spring.
