  • We accommodate drop-ins where possible but do check the on-line class schedule periodically to see if the class is already full for a session or is a registration only class.
  • Please come 10 minutes before class starts to get settled before instruction begins (especially if this is your first visit to a particular class).
  • We have all the equipment you will need for class, including yoga mats. Bring your own mat if you prefer.
  • Wear loose-fitting clothing that you can move in and come prepared to practice in bare feet.
  • Tell the teacher if you have medical conditions, such as post-operative conditions, hypertension, heart problems, high or low blood pressure, back, neck or knee problems, menstrual disorders etc.
  • Avoid eating for at least two hours before an Iyengar Yoga class or four hours in the case of a heavy meal.

    …and please, no scents, makes good sense.

The Invocation to Patanjali
To the noblest of sages, Patanjali
Who gave Yoga for serenity of mind,
Grammar for purity of speech,
And Medicine for perfection of the body, I bow.

I prostrate before Patanjali,
Whose upper body has a human form,
Whose arms hold a conch and disc,
Who is crowned by a thousand-headed cobra,
O incarnation of Adisesa, my salutations to Thee.

Yogena cittasya padena vacam
Malam sarirasya ca vaidyakena
Yopakarottam pravaram muninam
Patanjalim pranjalir anato'smi

Abahu purusakaram
Sankha carkrasi dharinam
Sahasra sirasam svetam
pranamami patanjalim

hari aum
