Recorded Live at the Yoga Institute of Champaign-Urbana, Lois begins her Advanced classes with sutra studies. In this class, Lois discusses Sutra II.49 and then teaches standing poses and backbends as outlined below. Lois follows this practice with a pranayama practice in savasana on a bolster and then seated at the wall and finishes with Nadi Shodana. All Lois' classes are taught in the Iyengar Tradition and the Advanced Classes are appropriate for students with several years study in Iyengar Yoga.
This class assumes regular, dedicated study with a Certified Iyengar Yoga Teacher for a minimum of two years, a thorough understanding of all basic poses, including their Sanskrit names, sutra study, prolonged practice of sirsasana and sarvangasana for ten minutes, and an established home practice in the various asana categories. Please only attempt poses within your skill level.
