“This is a great class for those new to yoga or for those who have practiced for years.
Tony is an Iyengar teacher, which stresses proper alignment and holding poses for longer durations. His classes (Tuesdays 6:00 – 7:30pm and Saturdays 10:30 – 12:00 noon) in the Duboce park area are donation based and vary well from week to week. There is always method to the pose progressions and Tony helps students one and one to improve from whatever level you are working from.
I really like Tony’s classes because they are a good medium between the phoofy (none of the ‘stretch your arms up toward Shiva’ business or chanting or anything) and the military boot camp classes (Tony reminds you that yoga is ultimately about calming and stilling the mind, not twisting your body into a pretzel).
Go to his website at http://www.ynottony.com for his class schedule, studio address and much more. He also directs free yoga Sundays at Sports Basement (for the next 6 mos. hopefully) and teaches a Thursday night class at Club One.” – Dan L.
