Join Nikki for an hour of practice and explore the fundamentals of Iyengar Yoga for all levels of practice.

This sequence is a solid preparation for pranayama and meditation practice. Spend time in the seat of sitting poses and find levity and steadiness in inversions. Notice the effects on the breath, min and the body's capacity to sit with stillness. Asanas include: siddhasana, upavistha konasana, baddhakonasana, sukhasana, prasarita padottanasana, sirsasana (with leg variations and interlock change). halasana, eka pada sarvangasana, salamba sarvangasana (with leg variations) and setu bandha sarvangasana.
