Beginners is our yoga class for absolute beginners, those new to the Iyengar Yoga style and those with only a little yoga experience. We teach a sequential yoga course starting at the very beginning. We build understanding week-by-week. This course covers basic standing asana (yoga postures), sitting, forward bends, twists & basic backbends.
Level 1 (Intermediate) builds on the learning commenced in Beginners Yoga. It covers a much broader range of asana than beginners, and so students typically spend more time in this level (say 1-2 years). In Level 1 we continue to develop our ability to perceive sensation in our bodies as we as work on building understanding of how a consistent method and approach moves us forward. As a result, strength, flexibility, mental clarity and penetration are improved as we prepare the body and mind for more demanding work. For those who have completed at least one FULL Iyengar yoga basics course. Not for absolute beginners or those without Iyengar Yoga experience.
Level 2 (Experienced Intermediate) includes teaching of yoga asana to challenge and deepen your practice (such as full inversions like headstand and more demanding backbends). However we recognise this is a process, and we work with where you are. More detailed pranayama (breath work) is also taught. Level 2 seeks to move our yogic understanding to a greater level via more demanding asana work. We use this as a platform for deepening our level of inquiry and self reflection. In Level 2, we acknowledge that coming to one 1.5 hour class once a week is not really enough to sustain the level required. There is an expectation that you attend class at least twice a week where possible and / or have the commitment to the beginnings of a home practice. Your teachers will be happy to guide you with any questions you have in regards to this.
Level 3 (Experienced Practitioner) This is a 2 hour class. A minimum of 4 years practice in the Iyengar Method is required, with a commitment to establishing a home practice. You should be able to hold Sirsasana independently for a minimum of 5 minutes (or know how to manage an alternative) and be able to adjust your own practice whilst menstruating. There is an there is an expectation that you are committed to learning the names of the asanas in Sanskrit, and that you attend class at least twice a week where possible. This level is for students willing to challenge themselves & deepen ownership of their own practice. Please check in with Bron before enrolling.
Combined Level Classes are suitable for anyone in any of the levels mentioned.
