Iyengar Yoga Fundamentals (Level 1&2 ) 4-9 Week Beginning Courses 

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 at least 1 week before the start date of the course.
There is a $5 late fee for those that register after the last class of the current month(this is usually within 7 days of the start date except for times when there is more than a week break between classes ending and starting again.
8-9 Week Courses are $136-$145 provided early.
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.
