Level 1 vs Level 2

Tues nights starting Oct 10th I will be teaching a Level 1 and a Level 2. I want to explain the differences of the classes so you can see which class is best for you.

I teach both classes in progressive manner so each week builds on the previous week, linking what you are learning throughout the month. Allowing you to perfect new poses and really focus on certain aspects of your yoga practice.

In Level 1 each week the emphasis is on standing poses, as these are the foundation of all of our yoga practice for the rest of our lives. Later in the year we start to incorporate the same schedule as Level 2.

In Level 2 each week of the month has a focus
Week 1- Standing poses
Week 2- Forward bends/ abdominal
Week 3- Back bends/ abdominal
Week 4- Restorative
