Level 1: For continuing beginning students. Refinement of basic poses, with an emphasis on standing poses, seated poses and beginning inversions. Many students take this level several times.
All Levels: All Levels classes are taught to welcome and include practitioners of all experience levels. The sequence of poses varies from class to class and teachers are skilled at adapting as needed for each individual. These classes are typically active and challenging in a good way. Yoga classes that are good for you inside and out!
Level 2: Deeper and expanded study of the basic poses, with increased study of inversions and backward extensions.
Exploring basic shoulder releases: In this 5-week series, we will review basic shoulder anatomy and explore how specific asanas can help gently release tightness through the front of the shoulders, chest, and neck. This is a basic level class where use of props will be emphasized.
Twisting for fun and well-being: In this 5-week series, we will explore how rotations of the spine and torso can be used to build strength in core muscles, and increase the range of motion of the spine while creating space in the hips, spine, and shoulders. Each session will build upon the prior session so students gain a gradual understanding of key elements of basic twisting.
Beginners: In this series of 4 classes you will learn the foundations of yoga to help you build strength, flexibility and to relieve stress. This is an active class, excellent for those who are totally new to yoga or new to Iyengar yoga. This class is not for students with serious physical limitations. Each 75-minute session will build upon the prior class in a progressive manner.
Ageless Yoga is for students who need to practice slowly and with focus. The class works on foundations of Iyengar yoga, to build strength and improve balance and coordination, while providing a time to quiet oneself mentally and relieve stress. It is taught as a 6-week series, with each 75-minute session building upon the prior session so students gain a gradual understanding of key elements to a basic yoga practice.
