Our Class Levels will help guide you to choose the class that best suits you.
Level 1 is for students new to yoga. Focus in the class is on alignment and basic safety tips while practicing so students can develop a solid understanding of the basics. This level is also suitable for those who have some yoga experience but have not had a lot of physical activity recently.
Level 1-2 combines both Level 1 and Level 2 by moving slightly faster while focusing on developing a deeper understanding of the basics in asana.
Level 2 is also a faster paced class for ongoing yoga students already comfortable with the basics and for newer students looking for a challenge.
Yoga Styles at RYA
All of our classes offer guidance and individualized instruction when needed, so you get the best out of your class.
Iyengar Yoga is yoga based on the style of B.K.S. Iyengar. Classes in this style introduce safe alignment and explore yoga poses to encourage a broader understanding of how the body moves, as well as how the mind and intelligence can be linked to the movements.
Pranayama is the practice of lengthening, expanding and controlling the breath and is suitable for students who have had at least six months experience in regular asana classes.
Gentle Yoga is designed for people who prefer a slower paced movement class and is a Level 1 class.
Adaptive Yoga modifies traditional yoga postures for students with limited mobility. All postures are done either seated on chairs, or standing, with minimal weight bearing on the hands or knees. Classes include mindfulness meditation, breathing exercises and more.
Restorative Yoga is a slow paced class of supported poses to accentuate a sense of rest and rejuvenation.
