CLASSES FILL QUICKLY!

YOGA 1/BEGINNER
is the introductory class for students who are new to yoga. This class focuses on poses to stretch and strengthen the legs, back, and shoulders. Emphasis is given to the basic alignment of the standing poses

GENTLE YOGA 1
is designed for those who prefer a class less vigorous than Yoga 1. It includes gentle stretches and breathing as well as simple movements designed to systematically increase the range of motion of every major joint and increase energy. This class is ideal for students with chronic symptoms such as muscle/joint pain, stiffness, weakness, or fatigue.

GENTLE YOGA 2
is a continuation of Gentle Yoga 1, emphasizing the refinement of Gentle Yoga 1 poses and introducing the basic principles of alignment. This class will focus on strengthening the body and adapting poses to protect injured or weak joints. New breathing and relaxation techniques will be introduced as well. This class is more strenuous than Gentle Yoga 1 and students must complete at least two sessions of Gentle Yoga 1 before taking Gentle Yoga 2.

YOGA 1-2
is a continuation class for Yoga 1. The emphasis of this course is on refining and building endurance in Yoga 1 and Yoga 2 standing poses. The basic principles of alignment are presented. This class is suitable for students who have practiced other styles of yoga, but it is not suitable for those who have never studied yoga before.

YOGA 2/ADVANCED BEGINNER
focuses on refining the standing poses and learning basic sitting postures, simple back bending poses, and the shoulder stand using the principles of alignment. It is recommended that students complete both Yoga 1 and Yoga 1-2 before taking Yoga 2.

YOGA 2-3
is a combination class. It begins with Yoga 2 poses and moves gradually into Yoga 3 poses, particularly strengthening poses for the upper body in preparation for the headstand and handstand. The headstand is the major pose learned in this course. Students should complete at least three sessions of Yoga 2 and be comfortable in Chaturanga and Up Dog before taking Yoga 2-3.

YOGA 3/INTERMEDIATE
continues with refinements to poses studied in Yoga 1 and 2 and introduces the forearm balance and full arm balance (handstand). Additional back bend poses are also included. It is recommended that students complete at least three sessions of Yoga 2 and one session of Yoga 2-3 before taking Yoga 3.

YOGA 4/ADVANCED
is for students who are capable of holding a free-standing headstand, can do a full arm balance (hand-stand) alone at the wall, and who can push up into Urdhva Dhanurasana (Upward Facing Bow Pose) with straight arms. Regular practice is expected. Permission of the instructor is required.

MAD SKILLS FOR GRACEFUL AGING
We are getting older! There is nothing we can do about that, so this session we will blend in the mad skills needed to age more gracefully. We will explore how to tailor our yoga practice to enrich our yoga toolbox by focusing on balance, stability, flexibility, and agility through asana, pranayama, and relaxation. Open to students Yoga 1-2 and above.

VINYASA FLOW 1
is a continuous series of postures, movement flows with breath, and creative Sun Salutions, including
Sun Salutations A, B, and C. This style of practice is heating and vigorous, and builds strength and stamina quickly in the body. Shoulderstand and inversion preparations are practiced. Recommended for HAYC students who have completed at least two sessions of Yoga 2 and who are steady in standing postures, and for those with vinyasa experience from other styles and schools. No serious physical injuries or limitations.


VINYASA FLOW 2
builds on the principles and techniques of Vinyasa Flow 1 and moves through more difficult transitions and towards more challenging postures such as full backbends, arm balances, and inversions. Students should be able to move easily through Chaturanga and Upward Facing Dog. Appropriate for students who have taken at least one session of Yoga 3, three sessions of Vinyasa Flow 1, or have the permission of the instructor. No major injuries, please.

YIN YOGA
is partially based on the Chinese energy system and is designed to bring energetic balance and harmony into our yoga practice and lives. This quiet class focuses on our connective tissues and the protection and health of our joints. Suitable for students who have completed at least one session of Yoga 2.

YOGA TECHNIQUES
is a one-hour mixed-level course where we explore a different area of the body or class of pose each week. Open to students who have completed at least one session of Yoga 1-2.

KIDS YOGA (ages 6-12)
is designed to help children build strength and flexibility, concentration and focus, compassion and self-esteem through the playful practice of yoga postures. Kids will have fun as they improve their posture, motor coordination, and balance. Yoga poses will help children cope with the conflicts and stress of a very hectic world. A child who learns yoga will develop skills that will last a lifetime.

TEENS YOGA (ages 13-17)
Life can be very busy and stressful for teens these days. This class gives teens the opportunity to participate in a nurturing activity that provides exercise for the total body as well as relaxation techniques that can be used for school, sports, performing arts, sleep improvement, and life skills. Yoga allows teens to find strength and flexibility through practice and patience.
