Class Descriptions

Who Can Attend Classes?

We believe that yoga is a practice that is accessible to everyone. We offer classes accommodating students of all ages, experience levels, and abilities.

Please note: If you have serious medical conditions or injuries, or you have chronic pain, or you are unsteady on your feet, please call (303-440-4100) or e-mail (info@yogashalaboulder.com) before coming to class to discuss the best way for you to begin yoga. In these situations we ask that you do not just show up at the studio for a class.

Level 1
These classes offer a foundation in Iyengar Yoga, teaching the basic actions in standing poses, shoulderstand, and other fundamental postures, and providing guidance for beginners. Students with serious injuries or health conditions should contact the studio before attending any classes.

Level 1-2
These classes are appropriate for Level 1 and Level 2 students.

Level 2
Students should be familiar with the Iyengar method, including how to do Sirsasana (headstand) and Sarvangasana (shoulderstand) in the Iyengar style, or appropriate alternatives. Students new to the Iyengar method should attend Level 1 classes.

Level 3
These classes are for students with a strong foundation in the Iyengar Yoga method, including the ability to hold Sirsasana and Sarvangasana for at least 5 minutes. Please note that students must have teacher permission in advance to attend Intermediate classes.

Gentle
Gentle classes are appropriate for students who require a slower-paced, more methodical class or who need special assistance. Classes cover a range of both active and restorative poses. Students with serious injuries or health conditions should contact the studio before attending any classes.

Restorative
Restorative classes offer a sequence of poses designed to provide rest and rejuvenation.
