Level 1&2 – The Fundamentals of Iyengar Yoga: Our Level 1&2 classes emphasize the fundamentals or basics that lay the foundation for a safe, intelligent, and more powerful future practice. The Level 1&2 courses teach the basic standing poses, sitting postures, and beginning inversions. All students new to Iyengar yoga need begin in either Level 1&2 OR in Slower yoga.


The Hallmarks of learning Iyengar Yoga are:

  • the emphasis on creating good, safe alignment in every pose.
  • the use of everyday props to give stability, prevent overstretching, and allow the student to do poses with better alignment.
  • Intelligent sequencing which properly prepares students for more advanced and intricate practices without fear of injury.
  • Responsive teachers who can give alternative poses to those who need them.

Course fees are $68-$85 per month for a 4 week month or a 5 week month provided you register by the last class of the current sessions class. (usually 7 days before the start date of the course except when there are holidays or closures).

There is a $5 late fee for those that register after the last class of the current month.

8-9 Week Courses are $136-$145 when registered early or $5 more when registered late.

Iyengar Yoga is considered the Gold Standard of Yoga Systems with a considerable degree of emphasis on creating good alignment in every pose and the development of awareness of how to practice well and appropriately.

Each month during the first week of the month we have many of these 4-9 week courses starting.
