Classes will be held on Saturday mornings from 9-10:30 at the Columbia Grange – 37493 NE Grange Hall Rd, Corbett, OR – beginning September 17, 2022. We will practice and explore (primarily) standing poses that stretch and strengthen the body to achieve balance.
Anne believes that yoga îs not just about moving the body, or following a teacher’s instructions. Rather, yoga is a journey of exploration. It is about each individual cultivating the awareness of their own body so that each of us can work in a healthy way, and work towards proper alignment.
BKS Iyengar developed the use of props such as blocks, straps, chairs, etc. to facilitate longer holds of postures and to adjust the body to accurate alignment. Proper alignment reduces extraneous effort and excess muscular tension, and prevents the development of hyper-flexibility which can be damaging to the joints.
Students will need to bring their own set of basic yoga props to class. These are often available at Target, Walmart, & Dicks Sporting Goods. Below are links for products Anne recommends.
- Yoga Mat (preferably no more than 4 mm thick)
- 2 Yoga Blocks (preferably cork; these are both stable and relatively light weight)
- 8 ft Yoga Strap
- 10 ft Yoga Strap
- 4-6 Yoga blankets
