Level I: For students new to yoga or to the Iyengar approach, as well as those who want to concentrate on the fundamental postures.
Level I-II: For those with experience in fundamental poses and interested in precision alignment. Basic poses are fine-tuned and the student’s overall practice more deeply explored. As confidence builds, new poses are introduced, including Salamba Sarvangasana (shoulderstand).
Level II: For students who are well practiced in the basic postures. In the Iyengar tradition, students learn and explore inverted poses, including Sirsasana (headstand) and Adho Mukha Vrksasana (handstand).
Level II-III: For students with substantial yoga experience who are strong in standing postures and can do Sirsasana (headstand), Salamba Sarvangasana (shoulderstand), and Halasana (plow) with confidence.
Yin Yoga: Suitable for all levels of students, this practice is a true mind-body meditation. It’s slow-paced and designed to help you sit longer, and more comfortably, by stretching connective tissue around the joints (knees, pelvis, sacrum and spine). Involves variations of seated and supine poses typically held for several minutes, accessing deeper layers of fascia. Gently trains muscular fascia to become more flexible and ligaments that support joints to become stronger. Props supplied in class often used.
Gentle: A less rigorous, moderately paced class for new and experienced students. Well-suited to those with minimal mobility, recovering from illness or injury, or chronic issues of fatigue.
Props: We take advantage of the studio's full complement of yoga props -- blocks, belts, blankets, bolsters, chairs, straps and rope wall -- to support, align and deepen our experience of all categories of asana: standing and restorative poses, forward and backward extensions, and inversions.
Yoga: A dynamic practice with conscious attention to alignment and individual student needs.
Align: A balanced practice, focused on alignment and refinement of classic poses to build strength and flexibility, with a little music and a more casual feel to the class
Rise and Shine: A dynamic alignment-based class for early risers, with the morning body in mind.
