Iyengar Yoga
What is Iyengar Yoga?
Yoga is great exercise for the body, mind and spirit. It can be used therapeutically as well, to aid in healing many kinds of injuries, both physical and emotional. Yoga can also significantly reduce stress. Anyone can practice yoga— you do not have to be strong or even flexible. We will start at your level of ability and build from there. Through a systematic progression of poses your abilities will develop over time, encouraging confidence and commitment.

Hatha yoga in the tradition of BKS Iyengar uses physical postures, breathing exercises, and study of the philosophy of yoga to help you achieve health and vitality. The focus is on developing one’s awareness through concentration, creating alignment in the body and balance between strength and flexibility. Props such as blocks, straps, and blankets are used to allow for deeper exploration of the poses and to give access to poses when there are limitations. The yoga space at The Lake House is fully equipped and perfect for private lessons, small group classes and workshops. Jill also teaches at Yoga Haven in Tuckahoe, NY.
