Iyengar Yoga Center of Denver

Transformative yoga for the whole person

class descriptions

Iyengar Yoga Center of Denver has class offerings designed our to transport you through a learning process that includes the full range of the postures. Genuine progress in Iyengar yoga requires prolonged study at each level.

Iyengar Yoga Center of Denver teaches students of every age and fitness level. Students may attend classes at the level appropriate to their experience without registering in advance.

In addition to yoga classes at three distinct levels, the Center’s weekly schedule includes other specialty classes and workshops. The schedule indicates the primary teacher for each class.

You may drop in to any of our regularly scheduled yoga classes, space permitting, unless they are part of a series or require pre-registration.

Studios are kept slightly warmer in the summer and slightly cooler in the winter to practice closer to the outside environment, as encouraged by our master BKS Iyengar. This allows the body's internal thermostat to adjust better to the climate in which we live.

Students are exposed to the diversity of the Iyengar Practice, from quick jumping movements to long static holds. Iyengar Yoga includes it all.
