Hatha Yoga 1-2
Level 1-2 Mixed Level classes are geared to students in normal health who are still working to learn fundamental postures as well as those who have more experience and are seeking to expand, refine and develop their yoga practice at more subtle levels. Sun Salutations and series of flowing poses are incorporated at this level. All classes end with deep relaxation.
$10 Chair Yoga Class
Gentle level hatha yoga class uses chairs, the wall and other props for safety and support. Recommended for students who need help with balance or who have trouble going down to the floor. This class is included with Yoga East memberships.
Yoga Flow 2
Continuing level 2 classes are for students who are well-established in a yoga practice, know the fundamental postures, know how to make modifications for their level with and without props, and can self-correct in the postures. As students'' skills and understanding of yoga deepens, the asanas will as well. This class will focus particularly on sun salutations, their purpose and the union of each movement with the breath. Students at this level should be able to hold Caturanga Dandasana (plank). More complicated backbends, twists and arm balances are taught at this level. Yoga Sutra readings, pranayama and meditation are also incorporated at this level. All classes end with deep relaxation.
