About Class Levels

Beginner Level: is appropriate for the beginning student, someone recovering from an injury, or someone who needs to move more slowly. The pace of the class is slower to give you a good understanding of the postures (asanas) or exercises. The emphasis is on basic poses and breathing correctly which will help you establish a solid foundation.

All Level: is appropriate for beginners with some experience through experienced students. Options and modifications are offered so the pose can work for you. More challenging poses and breathing techniques (yoga pranayama) may be offered with instructions to assist you.

Intermediate Level: You will be encouraged to explore beyond your boundaries with more challenging options and poses. More detailed alignment cues are given throughout class to help you fine tune the postures and deepen your practice. It is helpful to have a strong yoga foundation already in place.
