Class Levels

Fundamentals: Learn the fundamentals of classic yoga poses with an emphasis on alignment and safety at a slow pace. This class is ideal for brand new yoga students or returning students who have practiced but not
recently.

Level 1: These classes are for you if you’ve completed the Fundamentals series and/or your teacher referred you to a level 1 series during your foundation session. These classes will continue to educate you on the basic yoga poses, proper alignment and breathing practices. The pace of these classes is slow so that you can move more mindfully and gently in your practice.

Level 1/2: For the experienced Level 1 student who wishes to transition to a deeper practice, these classes offer continued refinement and variations of classic poses. These classes will also begin to gradually introduce you to Level 2 poses such as inversions and arm balances. This class moves at a slightly quicker pace than Level 1 classes.

Level 2: More advanced asanas are introduced as well as a deeper focus on the details and refinement of each pose. Physically more demanding, these classes are appropriate for students strong in standing poses and comfortable practicing inversions and arm balances with props.
