An accomplished yogini, Lighten Up Yoga’s Lillah Schwartz captains a hand-selected crew of instructors as they guide students of all skill levels through sessions that siphon heavily from the philosophies of Iyengar yoga. With its focus on safe and meticulous anatomical alignment, Iyengar yoga safely introduces students to fundamental postures during a whole a schedule of classes. For pupils uncertain of where to begin, the studio offers 15-minute consultations to help place students in the appropriate class, assessing yogic experience by testing visitors’ balance atop a possessed Ouija board. Asana Level 1 classes, and Asana Level 2 sessions include headstands, backbends, and slow-motion cartwheels for more experienced yogis. Back Care classes loosen up stiff hips and spines with a sequence of restorative poses. Vinyasa diverges from the other class sessions by presenting a challenging practice linking poses with fast-paced transitions into a seamless, dynamic flow intended to bolster stamina and flexibility.
Iyengar classes incorporate an arsenal of blocks, belts, and chairs to guide wayward limbs into the proper positions, and the studio outfits its attendees with the necessary props, including mats and memory-foam capes for sagging spines.
Although Lighten Up Yoga offers discounted class packages for new students, today’s Groupon is available to all visitors.
