Yoga Class Levels Explained
Scroll down for full class schedule
Yoga styles range from classes where you hold the pose without moving (static stretch) to moving through a range of motion (dynamic stretch). Your yoga classes will have elements of both long held static stretches and range of motion stretches. Both types of stretching can be beneficial when done mindfully. We encourage you to explore a variety of classes and teachers to get a feel for what speaks to you. If you are new to yoga - start with a level 2 class.
Mostly floor poses. Very slow movement. Less strength building. (relaxation)
Level 1 - Gentle, or Basics
Slow transitions between floor and standing. Slow movement. Modified poses.(flexibility and relaxation)
Level 2 - All Levels
Teacher can adjust up or down for different levels. More transitions between floor and standing. Full poses. (cardio-strength-flexibility)
Level 3 - Active or Athletic
Quick transitions or deep static holds. Complex movements. Extended poses. (cardio – strength–flexibility–challenging and unique sequences or holds–arm balances–inversions)
