Clear Yoga Mentoring Program: 2018-2020.

Our pledge to you….

No one is too stiff, too out of shape, too stressed, or too old to begin Iyengar yoga. Understanding and helping you is the basis of our teaching methodology.   Contact Jessica at clearyogarhinebeck@gmail.com, or 845 876 6129 to discuss your goals and condition, and she will help you set a course of action for you. All that is required is a willingness to learn and to face your challenges steadily, one step at a time.

Folks who practice Iyengar Yoga get stronger very quickly.

Aches and pains disappear with regular practice, and after a while, Iyengar Yoga students say they are much stronger, more flexible, and have a higher level of endurance.

In an interview with Advanced Iyengar Yoga teacher Manouso Manos, he describes Iyengar Yoga as:
“Iyengar’s is the most eyes-wide-open approach. He tells you to see the world for what it is and teaches you as you are. The best definition of Iyengar yoga I can give is that the tool, the body, is used as the tool of consciousness. He hones the body to hone consciousness. He brings the body to a state of awareness making consciousness rise. The body, mind, and spirit, run in harmony. We utilize the body to get greater understanding of the universe, ourselves, and our own internal universe. Other definitions talk about precision and alignment, but clearly this is about the ancient texts of yoga: awakening the individual, realization of that individual within the confines of the universe, and the effort that these flow together to liberation.”
