Notes:

  • This sequence is meant for students who have about 6 months’ class experience with a Certified Iyengar Yoga Teacher.
  • If you don’t have a mat with you while you travel, place your (back) foot or both feet at the wall, depending on the pose and how much room you have at the wall. Do not practice against a door or where others may bump or run into you.
  • If you use a chair, make sure it is stationary (not swiveling) and that you can place your feet flat on the floor with your legs at a 90* angle.
  • Always practice on a clean, even surface, out of direct sunlight
