Level 1, or 1 Diamond, classes are suitable for beginners who are looking for a slower paced, more descriptive experience. The class will help you develop body awareness, learn the basic postures (asanas) and their modifications. The emphasis on proper alignment will help you build strength slowly and safely. Learn yogic breathing and how to link breath with movement. Have fun in this informative class.
Level 2, or 2 Diamond, classes are suitable for intermediate students. The basic postures are expanded to include more difficult variations and may be described with less detail. The class will flow at a faster pace and the asanas will be held longer. The classes introduce more advanced breathing techniques and concepts in yogic philosophy including the energetic body.
In this training, you will learn to teach not only asana (postures), but all 8 limbs of yoga. You will learn to teach classes that are a dynamic expression of your personal relationship to the practice. Your life and teaching will become an example that inspires others to live in accordance with the yoga tradition of peace and happiness. This unique expression of your yoga will join your individual light with the collective light of the sages who have come before you in the name of union.
