Gentle? Level 1 or Level 2?
Gentle is for those who have never tried yoga before, or those that have a physical limitation, an injury or those that just want to increase their flexibility. You will learn deep breathing techniques, gentle stretches and do some ‘extreme relaxation’. (I know… oxymoron)
Level 1 is where you can learn the basic structure and alignment of the standing poses. This class flows from one posture to the next, incorporating the breathing techniques as well. If you feel capable of bending, kneeling, getting up and down off the mat and balancing on one foot for a few seconds at a time you are more than ready for this class. If at any time you feel you’re ‘in over your head’, (i.e. in forward fold)…we offer modifications along the way to accomodate for all levels of flexibility and strength.
Level 2 is for those with some yoga experience. We’ll explore the postures a little deeper and incorporate some of the advanced poses. Even the advanced poses have modifications so if you feel you’re ‘not quite there yet’…. don’t let that stop you. This is how you get there! Try this class if you feel comfortable in Level 1 and want to see a different style of class. It’s always good to mix things up a bit! Oh…
By the way, ALL the classes include the ‘extreme relaxation’…. whew!
