Most of our classes are open to anyone at any level. There are some exceptions. We have classes geared specifically for beginners and these classes are listed as level 1. We also have classes that are geared towards more experienced students and those classes are listed as level 2 or level 2-3. If you are new to yoga or even new to Iyengar yoga these classes may not be for you. Please do not attend the Monday night level 2-3 class without a solid foundation in Iyengar Yoga. Read more below.
These classes are typically small and the teacher can accommodate students of all levels.

More about levels and Iyengar Yoga
This is a progressive practice. Students should progress, with time, from level 1 to general classes then to level 2 or 2-3 classes and onward. Our teachers are working to progress with you. We have teachers frequently traveling to India to study with the Iyengar family, taking classes with more senior teachers around the country, and continuing to work towards higher levels of certification in the Iyengar system.
