Class Levels on Zoom

Yoga Basics on Zoom

Yoga Basics is designed for students with very little, or absolutely no experience of yoga.  At this level, we work through asanas steadily and methodically.  A typical class includes instruction on posture and alignment of the skeletal body, standing poses, seated poses and some gentle twists.  There is always a relaxation segment at the end of each class.  

Here you can get to know our school and our teachers, learn how to use the equipment to support you, and accumulate a solid foundation to progress with when you move up to the General Classes.  Basic instruction in Pranayama (breathwork) begins at this level.

General Level Classes on Zoom

General level classes are suitable for students with some yoga experience. If you haven't practised Iyengar Yoga before, it might be a good idea to do a few Yoga Basics classes to learn about alignment, timings, sequencing and technique.  

This level caters for a wide range of experience and we ask each student to practice to their individual capacity.  We will get to know how to use equipment, build stamina and stability in standing poses,  introduce a wide range of poses including inversions and Pranayama (breathwork).

Experienced Classes on Zoom

Most students working at this level have been practicing Yoga for at least 3 years and have a good understanding of basic yoga philosophy, including Svadhya (self study) in the practice of yoga.  Because the asanas taught at this level are more challenging, Experienced students are expected to have a regular home practice.  Pranayama (breathwork) is taught at a more advanced level.  Knowledge of yoga philosophy is also developed and applied to the practice steadily and consistently.  Students know how to practice to the individual capacity.
