Hi, my name is Deidra. I am a Certified Iyengar Yoga teacher. I am certified at the Intro I/ II Level. I am preparing to go up for assessment for the next level of the Iyengar certification, which is Junior Intermediate 1. This level adds many poses from the Astanga Intermediate Series to my teaching syllabus.

Here is where you can help me, help you. Part of my certification process is showing videos of my classes, to my teachers, to receive their feedback. I am teaching a free class at The Shala Union Square Thursday, November 15th from 1:30pm- 3pm. I am looking for open level students to come and take class. This would be a great opportunity if you are interested in learning more about full arm balance (handstand), forearm stand, parsva dhanurasana, bhekasana, ardha matsyendrasana, and balancing in headstand in the middle of the room.

Poses will be introduced using demonstration, clear instruction, and detailed alignment. This class will benefit students that are new to the intermediate poses, and students that want to go deeper into their intermediate practice. The class will be recorded. I will not post the video online. I will only show the video to my teachers. Students will not be judged on their practice, or understanding of the asanas. My teachers are only observing the class to critique my effectiveness as a teacher.

Please come out, support, take a free class, and help me get certified ?

If you can’t make this class, join me for my regular scheduled classes at The Shala Union Square Monday’s and Friday’s 10:30am- 11:35am.
