Iyengar Yoga

By: Kate Marshall-Chase & Brucie Serene MD

Iyengar yoga, a form of Hatha yoga, emphasizes anatomical alignment and precision through poses that strengthen and cultivate awareness and concentration.  Our multi-level class uses a variety of yoga props, such as belts, blocks, and blankets, to help individuals learn the poses in a safe and enjoyable manner.  Kate Marshall-Chase, a certified yoga teacher and licenced massage therapist, has practiced yoga for over 30 years.  Brucie Serene MD, a certified Iyengar yoga instructor, combines her medical knowledge with more than 20 years of yoga experience.  Great for individuals practicing at beginner and intermediate levels.

This yoga class for continuing Iyengar yoga students will focus on developing a practice of the foundational postures – standing, seated, forward and backward extending, twisting and inversions .  Using props such as blocks, straps and blankets will make it possible for all students to access the poses in a safe and balanced manner.  The practice of the poses will enhance  strength, stamina, balance and flexibility , leading to a healthier body, mind and spirit.  The class will be suitable for students who have some experience with yoga and want to deepen their practice .  It will be taught by Peg Spear – who has studied Iyengar yoga for 20 years, been teaching  for 5 years and whose yoga practice, study and teaching is informed in part by her lifelong work as a primary care physician.   Peg is certified by the Iyengar Association of the US (IYNAUS).
