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 for practitioners with varied levels of experience, not for beginners.  Teachers will adapt asanas as needed for each individual. These classes are typically active and designed to inspire participants to challenge themselves.

Level 2:  Deeper and expanded study of the basic poses, with increased study of inversions and backward extensions.


Beginners: In this series of 6 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 60-minute session will build upon the prior class in a progressive manner.

Ageless Intro is a multi-week series for students who are new to Iyengar yoga. It is typically scheduled once a week for five or six weeks, with each class lasting for 75 minutes. The series is suitable for those who want to increase balance and stability, and may have physical limitations that make it necessary to practice slowly and with focus.  The series is designed to gradually build strength, improve balance and coordination, and develop a sense of well-being. Participants may have physical limitations, but must be able to get up and down off the floor.

Ageless Continuing is for students with at least six months of Iyengar yoga experience who want to continue to build strength, improve balance and coordination, and reduce stress. This class teaches students how to help themselves using the healing benefits of Iyengar yoga as their tool. It offers techniques for joint support, muscular strength, balance maintenance, and injury prevention. The class is taught as a multi-week series, with each 75-minute session building upon the prior class. The series is typically six to eight weeks long. Participants may have physical limitations, but must be able to get up and down off the floor.
