Yoga can help reduce stress, lower blood pressure and improve heart function according to the Mayo Clinic. Every hatha yoga posture is composed of threads of awareness which, through intention, become lines of action. Performing a yoga posture is about finding and holding those lines of action, and the shape of the posture follows. In this class, simple postures will be deeply explored as a way for you to more fully experience being in your body. Iyengar Yoga Fundamentals is for experienced beginners and intermediate students. Mon, Jan 5-March 23, 6-7:15 p.m. (skip 1/19, 2/16). Instructor: Fred Dowd. (12.5 HRs)
