We assign levels to our classes so that our teachers have a frame of reference when they are planning their classes.
With that being said, all of our classes are open to all levels! All of our teachers are prepared to modify the practice to meet your level and ability.
Open level classes are all levels classes that are great for yogis of all levels and abilities. These classes are suitable for beginners and advanced practitioners alike. Open level classes will offer alternative postures and modifications so that the pace and structure of the class are suitable for all bodies.
Level 1 classes are classes designed for those with little to no yoga experience that are looking to learn and be challenged. Level 1 classes are slower-paced and have much more cueing and guidance than a more advanced class. These classes are great for those that want to become familiar with yoga poses and want to learn how to work with the breath.
Level 1/2 classes are Beginner/Intermediate classes that are designed with those who have had some experience practicing yoga. These classes are great for those that want to develop a stronger practice, explore a wider variety of postures, and develop some independence in their yoga practice. Students can expect a varying class pace; flow classes will continuously move from posture to posture, alignment classes might hold postures for longer. Remember, just because they are slower, doesn’t make them easier!
Level 2 classes are Intermediate classes designed for those who have a good understanding of basic yoga postures and the relationship between breath and movement. Level 2 classes build to peak postures and the pace tends to be more continuous. Teachers will provide slightly less instruction and trust that the students have the ability to modify their practice.
Level 2/3 classes are advanced intermediate classes suitable for more experienced yogis that have a solid, independent understanding of yoga postures. Classes will build to a peak posture, will demand more strength, balance and flexibility and will move at a continuous pace. Teachers will provide required cueing and require that students have the ability to modify their practice.
