I have practiced Iyengar yoga for years. This class has deepened my understanding of basic principles and actions, and I have gotten stronger by applying these teachings. Chris gives instructions that are beautifully clear and precise. Her tone of voice is helpful and encouraging. Thank you Chris.

Taking this class during the doldrums of the Pandemic was a salve to my soul. Chris quietly invites absorption into her instructions by the steady clear way she gives them. I have "done" Iyengar for a long time and I found myself rediscovering little tidbits I had forgotten about. Even though the video froze before the end I felt I had gotten a wonderful private with an amazing teacher. Thank you!

Christine, Thank you so much! The best beginners I've ever taken. So many good pointers and you have a truly lovely voice. Where do you teach?

Sara T.

Thank you Chris for your wonderful classes! Great instructions!
I have a question about urdhva hastasana? You talk about 3 important actions. One action is, move your shoulder blades down. I have heard from some other teachers, let the shoulder blades move up in this pose. Could this also a useful instruction? (I know, this is the apposite, what you say or did I understand something wrong.)

Please consider filming more classes.

Chris, My gratitude, as always, especially at the start of another New Year, to have your classes on line. Hearing your voice and the care and precision of your words allows the body and spirit to respond and once again to feel, as you said, renewal. Namaste. And Love, Carol Z

Patrizia M.

My first time trying Iyengar. Really appreciated this because as a beginner I am constantly concerned with alignment, engaging the correct muscles, and doing poses correctly. I found this practice more restorative, but definitely did generate some heat. Iyengar is definitely intense and requires deep focus.

This was a great practice. Thank you Chris. I learned a few new things and felt it so much in my body.
