The Daley Practice is an Iyengar studio in Asbury Park. The studio teaches yoga in the tradition of B.K.S. Iyengar. Iyengar Yoga puts focus on body alignment while developing strength, stamina, flexibility, and balance. This style of yoga is accessible to everyone regardless of age, ability, or physical limitations. The studio’s website explains that beginners start with standing yoga poses and are gradually introduced to a fuller range of sitting and reclining yoga postures, forward extensions, inversions, twists, backbends, and arm balances. Teachers will go on to incorporate an array of props — designed by B.K.S. Iyengar — like wall ropes, chairs, blocks, belts, and blankets to make the pose more manageable and give support when needed. Classes at The Daley Practice are categorized by levels of experience to ensure a safer and more comfortable environment for all students.
