Class Levels

  1. Level 1 beginner Beginner classes are powerful, learning experiences in which you will literally re-discover your body, how it works, and what it can do. All Beginner classes are designed to give you the time and support to understand the proper alignment of Yoga asanas (postures) and breathing technique.  You will begin by focusing on the basics, but it won’t stop there. Level 1 is always exciting because in every   class you learn and do something new. Beginner class teachers are experts at helping you master form,     understand how to breathe, help you build confidence in the postures and experience the wonders of  Yoga.

  1. Level 1-2 advanced beginner/intermediate  After you feel comfortable with the postures taught in Level 1 classes you will be ready to move to Level 1-2. These more challenging classes continue to emphasize the fundamentals of yoga while presenting the poses and sequencing the class in a more challenging way. Level 1-2 teachers are experts at offering new and exciting challenges for their students, while ensuring more difficult positions are practiced safely and effectively.

  1. Level 2 intermediate  Level 2 classes are designed to take you to the intermediate level where you will expand on your strength, stamina and flexibility as you master more advanced postures (inversions, backbends) and more demanding sequences. Level 2 classes will help you take your practice to a whole new level.

  1. Level 2-3 advanced intermediate/advanced  Level 2-3 classes presume students are familiar with intermediate yoga postures (including inversions and backbends). In these classes you will use your knowledge of postures and breathing to practice exciting, physically demanding and challenging sequences and variations.The pace of these classes is faster, you will go deeper, and your teacher will help you achieve breakthroughs in your practice and your self-awareness. We recommend you have a year of solid Yoga under your mat before you join 2-3 classes. Expect to be transformed.

  1. Level 3 advanced  Not for the faint of heart, Level 3 classes are geared towards advanced students, Teachers and Teacher Training graduates. Take this class only if you have an excellent degree of fitness. Are you regularly practicing the most difficult poses?  Most students at this level already have many years of serious yoga study under their belts. Level 3 is the right choice for self-directed students seeking an environment to practice at the highest level.
