Yoga Level Descriptions

Advanced

For students with substantial Iyengar Yoga experience who can do Sirsasana with intelligence for five minutes, who can kick up into Adho Mukha Vrksasana (Full Arm Balance) and Pincha Mayurasana, and push up into Urdhva Dhanurasana (Upward Bow) or are progressing in that direction. Sirsasana is taught away from the wall and variations are introduced. Independent practice should be well established.

Beginner

This class is for those who are new to Yoga or the Iyengar method. The focus is on standing poses, arm work and seated poses. Forward bending, twisting and backbending is introduced. Students are introduced to their bodies and taught how to relax deeply.

Continuing Beginner

For students who have completed several sessions at the Beginner level or are new to the Iyengar method but have prior experience. Prone backbendings, basic abdominal asanas are introduced and new forward extensions and twists are added. Salamba Sarvangasana (shoulder stand) and Halasana is learned in a progressive manner.

Gentle / Restorative

This class is focused on building strength and flexibility in all the right places for those bodies experiencing the effects of age and gravity.
 
It is also appropriate for students of any age who need a slower-paced class and those recovering from injury / illness.

Intermediate

For students who are ready to deepen their already established Yoga practice. Students have been well prepared to learn Sirsasana (Headstand) and variations in Salamba Sarvangasana (Shoulderstand) is introduced.

Yoga for Healing

All Yoga is therapeutic. Its practice gives back health and happiness (sukha) to the body and mind and brings about contentment (santosha). It is not medical treatment but can provide the student with knowledge about how to (at least) manage and (at best) heal from the source of the pain (dukha) being experienced by the body-mind.

 

Individualized sequencing, use of props, timing while in the specific postures and assistance by highly-trained teachers and apprentices unify to create a holistic treatment, unique to each individual.  The maximum number of students in the classroom at any time is limited to ensure personal attention and assistance as the student practices.
