Progressive Yoga Series

Designed for beginners with no yoga experience, advanced practitioners and those whose practice is at a level between the two. This series creates a path for you to advance through your practice at whatever pace feels right to you, layering details and building strength and stamina along the way.

Yoga 1 (Beginner 1)
An introduction to the foundation poses of a beginning practice. Basic breathing techniques will also be introduced. The focus will be on understanding the fundamentals of standing poses and proper alignment. No experience necessary.

Yoga 1/2 (Beginner 2)
A continuation and reinforcement of Yoga 1, this class allows students to solidify their comfort with the poses learned in Yoga 1 and deepen their knowledge and understanding of the principles of alignment. The focus will be on increasing strength, stamina and flexibility in the Yoga 1 poses and introducing additional poses to be developed in Yoga 2. This class is appropriate for students who have had at least one session of Yoga 1 or who have studied other Yoga disciplines. This class is not appropriate for students with no prior experience.

Yoga 2 (Intermediate 1)
Students will further explore and refine the poses learned in Yoga 1 & Yoga 1/2. Additional seated poses, simple back bends, shoulder stand and more challenging standing and balance poses will be developed in this class. One session of Level 1 and Level 1/2 is recommended prior to taking this class to ensure a foundation practice has been established and students are comfortable adjusting poses for their particular body and experience level. Students will have the opportunity to explore at their own pace and comfort level, guided by their instructor. The overall curriculum of Yoga 2 is spread out over multiple sessions to allow for an in depth study of a particular series of poses. Experience required.

Yoga 2/3 (Intermediate 2)
This class is a continuation of Yoga 2. This class will begin with Yoga 2 poses and gradually move into preparation for Yoga 3 poses. The focus will be on developing upper body strength in preparation for Yoga 3. Students will learn headstand in this class and will begin to explore arm balance preparation. Students should be comfortable in Chaturanga and Up Dog in order to enroll in this class. A minimum of 3 sessions of Yoga 2 (or the equivalent) is recommended prior to taking this class. Permission of the instructor is required to enroll in this class.

Classes are modified to accommodate individual student needs. Appropriate for students with health and recovery concerns and those who are looking for a gentler approach to their practice. No experience necessary.

Gentle Beginner 2

The primary focus will be on building strength and increasing joint range of motion and flexibility with an emphasis on warm-ups to provide greater access to the poses. Classes are modified to accommodate individual student needs. Appropriate for students with health and recovery concerns and those who are looking for a gentler approach to their practice.

Intro to Yoga Mini Session
A great opportunity for beginners who missed the start of our session. Enjoy this three week introduction to the basics of alignment-based Yoga and then join one of our Yoga 1 classes already in progress!

Kids Yoga Mini Session
This playful session will introduce children 6-12 to the benefits of Yoga. Games and imagery will be used to make poses accessible to little yogis.

Meditation
A mindfulness-based meditation experience suitable for all levels, and intended to help you practice awareness and presence. Students who register for both Candlelight Restoratives and Meditation may use the discounted price for the Meditation class.

Mid-Week Mix
Designed for yoga students who enjoy a little more intensity in their practice. This mixed level class builds on classic Hatha poses with attention to anatomy and technical refinement of alignment. Class begins slowly to allow for warm up at all levels and then moves through poses that are held for longer periods to allow time for adjustments to alignment and building strength and flexibility. Class finishes with a deep relaxation, leaving you refreshed and energized. Appropriate for students who have completed at least one session of Yoga 1/2.

Yin Yoga
A Yin practice is the ideal complement to a regular Hatha Yoga practice. Poses are generally held for longer periods, and focus on the release of connective tissues and improved circulation and flexibility. This quiet, therapeutic practice includes reclined and seated poses for a deep release. No experience necessary.

Yoga for Strength
A challenging class that will focus on building core and joint strength and stability. Many of the obstacles we face in our yoga practice are the result of an imbalance of strength and flexibility in muscle groups. Students will work to correct these imbalances to increase strength and improve balance and flexibility. Students will explore muscle groups from the feet up, with emphasis on hips, shoulders and core muscle groups. A minimum of 1 session of Yoga 1-2 and a familiarity with Sun Salutes are required for this class.
