Classes may be vigorous depending on the style of yoga and the instructor. Please keep your personal endurance in mind when selecting mixed levels classes.
BASICS: These classes will focus on breaking down complexities and building the foundation of your yoga practice. Great for beginners or anyone yearning to "get back to basics!"
