Join Lara Warren, a dedicated yoga practitioner and certified Iyengar Yoga teacher (Senior Intermediate I) from New York City. Lara will be leading a series of 3 workshops at Boston Yoga Union covering the use of the Arms, Legs and Sides in Iyengar Yoga, Forward Bends and Supported Poses & Beckbends, as well as Inversions. You can sign up for all 3 or individually. Lara is a phenomenal and dynamic teacher. Her knowledge, experience and dedication will certainly add a new layer of understanding to your practice!

Legs, Arms, Sides: Saturday 11:00am-1:30pm

Learn how the action in the legs and arms leads to length in your sides and spine. The foundational work in standing poses paves the way for more complex poses. In this workshop we will move from the more familiar actions of standing poses the more complex poses of balancings, twistings and inversions

Forward Bends & Supported Poses: Saturday 2:30pm-5:00pm

To balance the active and stimulating morning session, we will focus on the forward extension and supported poses in the afternoon to help pacify the brain, soothe the nerves and bring about a deep calm.

Uplift Yourself; Backbends & Inversions: Sunday 11:00am-1:30pm

In this session, we will begin with poses that open the shoulders, chest and frontal hips to make the practice of both the backbends and inversions more accessible. Once we have opened and strengthened ourselves with a series of backbends, we will steady ourselves and bring about a state of equanimity with the practice of inversions.
