In this 2-hour class, we will move through the classic sequence of 84 hatha yoga postures, from which the Ghosh and Bikram yoga lineages descended. Although this class was popularized in a hot room, we will practice at room temperature and allow the body to develop its own internal heat. There are no vinyasas in this sequence. Apart from the opening salutations to the gods, goddesses, sun, and moon, all postures are practiced with static holds.
Intermediate classes give students the opportunity to practice more challenging poses and further develop their strength and flexibility. While this class may seem difficult at first, we understand that the only way to grow is to try. Show up with an open mind and ready to work— progress is inevitable! Students are encouraged to feel comfortable with the Open Level class before joining.
