Level 1.5

Classes will be taught with detailed verbal instruction for alignment; advanced poses may be demonstrated or taught.

Pranayama, meditation, kriyas and bhandas may be incorporated into Level 1.5 classes.

Who should come: Those with a solid yoga foundation.

What to Expect: Level 1.5 classes build upon a foundation learned in Beginner classes. Teachers will guide students into safe ways to deepen postures, such as binds or other variations. Students may also learn new postures, such as introductory arm balances.
