Involution of Shoulder Stand
(regular class or series price)

During rehab after having rotator cuff repair surgery in 2013, my senior teacher strategically challenged me to regain my daily Salamba Sarvangasana (shoulder stand) practice by providing various modifications along the way.

In this class we will explore variations and modifications that helped build the strength and courage for me to get back up on my shoulders again. This class is suitable for all Iyengar Yoga students with a regular Salamba Sarvangasana practice.

"Yoga is for one and all.”  This was the conviction that led B.K.S. Iyengar (“Guruji”) to undertake the journey of yoga for himself and make yoga available to anyone who sought it. Guruji stood graciously like a lighthouse for all those who came to yoga.

“We are human beings, so we should have the qualities to help human beings. That is what I feel is charity.” – BKS Iyengar


Thank you to the 11 students who attended the 2017 International Yoga Day fund raiser  at OBYoga June 17, 2017. $184 was raised for the Bellur Trust.

"Guruji has told us we can best demonstrate our gratitude for his teachings by supporting the transformation of his ancestral village of Bellur. Some of the landmarks already achieved are a free hospital, water treatment facilities, India's first temple dedicated to Patanjali, and the free primary and high school which supply uniforms, books and a hot lunch, often the children's only meal of the day."
