Class Levels

Want to have a great time in yoga class? Nothing is more important then choosing the correct level. Be honest with yourself.  You’ll enjoy feeling masterful in class that is right for you.  If you need more guidance, a Yoga Advisor can give you tips on the teachers and classes at your local studio.

Level 1

Our Beginner classes are powerful, learning experiences in which you will literally re-discover your body, how it works, and what it can do. 

Level 1 are designed to give you the time and support to understand the proper alignment of yoga asanas (postures) and breathing technique. All of our teachers are expertly trained to help you master the correct form, understand proper breathing techniques, and build confidence in your practice. 

Level 1-2

Level 1-2 classes build on the fundamental postures introduced in Level 1 through creative and challenging sequences. Level 1-2 classes are also ideal for learning and practicing the basics of more challenging postures like arm balances, inversions, safely and effectively.

Level 2

Level 2 classes are designed to expand on your strength, stamina and flexibility as you master advanced postures like inversions, arm balances, and backbends, as well as demanding sequences. Also, expect teacher to refer to postures in Sanskrit more frequently. 

Level 2 classes will help solidify your practice at an intermediate level. 

Level 2-3

Level 2-3 classes presume students are familiar with intermediate yoga postures (including inversions and backbends). In these classes you will use your knowledge of postures and breathing to practice exciting, physically demanding and challenging sequences and variations.

The pace of these classes is faster, you will go deeper, and your teacher will help you achieve breakthroughs in your practice and your self-awareness. We recommend you have a year of solid yoga under your mat before you join 2-3 classes. Expect to be transformed.

Level 3

Not for the faint of heart, Level 3 classes are geared towards advanced students, teachers and teacher training graduates. Take this class only if you have an excellent degree of fitness. Are you regularly practicing the most difficult poses?  Most students at this level already have many years of serious yoga study under their belts. Level 3 is the right choice for self-directed students seeking an environment to practice at the highest level.
