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 used to make the postures accessible. One defining feature of an Iyengar class is that you will learn. Mary has practiced yoga for 15 years, she has been teaching in Lexington for 8, and became certified after a rigorous training and examination process. She studied with the Iyengars in India in January 2011 and January 2014.  Mary brings a warm, sunny, compassionate nature to her yoga instruction and a deep desire to share the practice with others.
