Here are some photographs taken while teaching a free Introduction to Iyengar Yoga at the Herkimer Apartments community room. Herkimer Apartments are adjacent to & above the Iyengar Yoga Center of Grand Rapids and also owned and managed by the housing non-profit organization, Dwelling Place. “Dwelling Place improves the lives of people by creating quality affordable housing, providing essential support services, and serving as a catalyst for neighborhood revitalization.” IYCGR rents space from Dwelling Place. While we have offered a sliding scale community gift class for over a year not one resident has attended. So after speaking to the community resident services coordinator, Regina, it was decided to bring class to the Herkimer and meet the community in their space. I brought some mats and we used the chairs that were there. Students with low back and knee problems and pain leaned on tables which works like a trestler (Iyengar Yoga “Horse”) to take some weight off the joints of the knees, hips, pelvis and back. It was great to meet some of our neighbors and to have children in the class with their parents. Looking forward to seeing more neighbors in class soon.
