Iyengar Yoga Level 1 (90 minutes) is a great class for those who are new to Iyengar yoga, a practice based on the teachings of the 91-year-old yoga master B.K.S. Iyengar, author of the classic yoga treatise Light on Yoga. There are two Iyengar Institutes in NYC, one in Chelsea and the other here in Boerum Hill. The airy, modern studio has large changing rooms and provides all necessary equipment. The class (and Iyengar Yoga in general) incorporates a lot of props —more advanced Iyengar classes may even involve suspension from ropes. You’ll be challenged but not exhausted in this beginners’ class—don’t expect a vigorous workout, but your heart rate will rise as you hold and adjust the poses per the instructor’s detailed directions.
