Class Descriptions
Level 1
Beginner to 1 year of experience. Level 1 will be an experience of building a new relationship of trust with your body. Learn about the connection between the body and mind and feel the difference that that connection makes. You will be empowered to pursue whatever it is that you want from yoga. Perhaps you are looking to loose weight or are interested in learning to de-stress. There is no right reason to come to yoga.
Level 2
1 to 2 years of experience Level 2 Continuing students will build on the foundations of Level 1 and begin to hold the postures longer and actually use the postures as warm-ups. As you become more familiar with the poses we will move deeper with more advanced breathing practices. Meditation in Motion is a trademark of this hatha yoga called Kripalu. Your ability to focus and move inward will develop as you move from one pose to another. This focus will transfer off the mat and into your life.
Level 3
2 or more years experience and at teacher's discretion. This is a level of commitment that is earned through regular practice and attendance. You will be guided to interrupt the routines that become too familiar which translates into stopping the learning process. Your ability to continue to learn is the secret to staying youthful.
