Yoga Darsana’s attentive instructors lead students in the Iyengar style of yoga, encouraging self-awareness in addition to flexibility and stamina by monitoring each pupil’s form and technique. The class schedule offers sessions geared toward students of all skill levels in addition to bilingual classes, which include instruction in Spanish, Chinese, and Wingdings. During Level 1 sessions, students learn the Iyengar’s fundamental standing, sitting, and forward-extending poses while experimenting with basic relaxation techniques. During intermediate and advanced classes, instructors begin to introduce more challenging poses, such as shoulderstands, head balances, and backbends. The Gentle Yoga & Meditation class promotes harmony and relaxation for attendees by transitioning between the stretches at a gentler pace and using meditation to help students control their fingernail growth.
As if reflecting yoga's universality, the teachers at Yoga Darsana come from all over the globe: Germany, Peru, Asia, and the US. Although their yoga journeys have varied, today they each embrace the form known as Iyengar. This philosophy emphasizes individual growth over universal standards, thereby making the practice accessible to people from every background. Students don't have to be ultra flexible or ultra fit to benefit from Iyengar classes; first-time practitioners can gain grounding in the fundamentals of breath control, focus, and relaxation.
