Jimena Lieb practices and teaches Iyengar yoga which emphasizes correct alignment of joints for maximum benefit and safety.  In this class the use of props such as chairs, blocks, blankets, or straps may be incorporated to help students adjust or support themselves in the different postures and thereby achieve a range of motion that is effective and safe.  Students will practice postures to reduce stress, create strength and flexibility, and correct structural imbalances for better overall health.
