Iyengar Yoga


Course Code: EYEN-fa23 Categories: , , Tags: ,


Been curious about why so many people are taking yoga in the United Sates? Come enjoy a yoga class taught in the Iyengar method of yoga. The Iyengar method is to yoga what classical ballet is to dance. It is a progressive offering of the yoga postures designed to provide a safe and an ever-deepening practice which opens and strengthens the body while drawing the mind into a meditative state. Props will be needed at home to make the postures accessible.

Mary Wixted is a nationally certified Iyengar yoga instructor with over 12 years of teaching experience (10 years with Lexington Community Education). Mary is expert in helping beginners enjoy the practice while taking more experienced students to their maximum pose protecting the body with the use of props when needed.

What Students Are Saying:

“I have taken Iyengar yoga with Mary for years! She is an incredible yogi; her love of Iyengar yoga is so apparent; her concern for and caring about her students is evident; she provides alternative strategies for those who need them. One feels comfortable in Mary’s classes.”

“Mary is a knowledgeable, compassionate, seasoned instructor who offers us extremely clear and detailed explanations and instructions. She is patient with those of us who have aging muscles and limbs, encouraging us to do as much as we can and then, just a tiny bit more. There’s never a hint of shaming or embarrassing us when we’ve reached our limits, unable to go further without risk of injury or unnecessary pain.”
