Class Levels & Descriptions

Iyengar Yoga

ALL LEVELS

A multi level general class. A minimum of 6 months Iyengar Yoga experience.required

LEVEL 2

A deepening study where backbends and inversions are introduced. A minimum of 12 months Iyengar Yoga experience required. 

The Iyengar method of Yoga may be said to define itself as different from other styles of Yoga by three key elements, namely technique, sequence and timing:

Technique means that in practice one learns ever finer adjustments in the alignment of how one performs one's asana (poses) and pranayama (breath control). 

Sequence refers to the sequences in which asana and pranayama are practiced. For example, by varying which postures are practiced after which, the mental and emotional effects of the practice can be intensified in a manner not otherwise possible in order to bring about changes to the whole being including ones spiritual evolution. 

Timing refers to the length of time spent in postures or pranayama. Postures cannot be done swiftly or without awareness. It takes time to move into a posture and become stable. When this has been achieved then one remains stably for some time to intensify the depth of the posture and so extract its benefit. Otherwise the potential effects and benefits remain small compared to what is possible.

So one can begin to see how Iyengar yoga cultivates all eight disciplines of yoga and is far from merely "gymnastics and deep breathing." With practice and understanding, one realizes that Asana (yoga posture) is as different from stretching or gymnastics just as Pranayama (Breath control) is different from merely deep breathing and meditation is different from self-induced trance.

Bands and Balls for Strength and Stability

Opened to all. No experience necessary. Donation Based class.

BANDS and BALLS for STRENGTH and STABILITY

This fun, accessible and mindful practice cultivates an awareness of core muscles and how they function in our daily activities as well as our Yoga and Ball Rolling classes.

Core muscles are more than just your ‘six-pack’… they include all of the muscles of the pelvis, mid, lower, upper back, shoulders and hips. These muscles work together to support your spine and skull and can greatly improve your posture, balance and overall wellness when strengthened.

At 87 Yoga we believe that any muscle that helps to support your spine should be considered a Core muscle!

Roll 'n Restore Muscle Therapy

Opened to all. No experience necessary.

Roll 'n Restore Muscle Therapy

Is about self-care, restoring and relaxing. It is for everyone and anyone that wants to be instrumental in their own health and well being.  

In our Roll 'n Restore classes we use a variety and range of Therapy Balls that will provide your soft tissues with simple and effective self Myofascial release. Improving mobility, preventing injuries and easing muscular tightness and pain. You will leave this class feeling rested and restored.

A much needed class/practice for athletes of all disciplines as well as ‘desk riders, tight and tired bi-peds, or anyone who wishes to develop a better posture and feel healthier!

All levels welcome and no yoga experience necessary. If you have Yoga Tune Up® Therapy Balls, bring them with you, if not you may use ours or purchase your own.

Meditation

Open to all - Donation based Community Class. No experience necessary

COMPASSION & FORGIVENESS MEDITATION

One of the root causes of suffering is a feeling or sense of being separate from others. In this class, we practice certain meditations that help enliven our sense of connectedness as well as assisting us in becoming more present for ourselves and others.

This has a natural byproduct of deepening our capacity for compassion and forgiveness. Practices such as these helps increase our vibration, open our heart, and calm the mind. Combining these with mindful intentions we can begin to change how we hold things in our heart.

This is important because how we hold the events of our life in our hearts determines our experience of them. Doing practices in a group setting helps strengthen our intention and deepens our experience.

I hope you will join us and add your intention to the group.
