All group classes are taught online at this time. The online classes are mixed level and open to everyone.

The only exception is Saturday 10:30 (Level 2 or students with Iyengar Yoga experience).

The descriptions below are our usual level descriptions for in-person classes.



Intro & Level 1
For students who are new to yoga or who want to get stronger in the basic poses. Students build confidence in the standing poses and learn the foundational yoga concepts including active relaxation.  View schedule


Gentle pace
This class is specifically designed for those who want to move at a more measured pace than the regular Introductory class.  This class will provide time between poses for observation and correction in the poses. You will be challenged to work at your capacity, and to build strength-endurance in the standing poses...according to your needs.  This class is 15 minutes longer so that we can end each class with deep relaxation. Offered 10am on Mondays. View schedule


Level 1:
Standing poses are emphasized. Students will explore the mechanics of forward bending and back extension and will learn additional skills to aid relaxation.  View schedule

Level 2:

We practice continuing what we've learned in Level 1, going deeper into intermediate poses. More forward bends, twists, backbends, inverted poses & a deeper level of relaxation and breathwork (pranayama).  View schedule

Mixed Level:

Open to all students, with some yoga experience. View schedule

Men's Class:
Open to all men. No yoga experience necessary. You will learn the basics of Iyengar Yoga, with an emphasis on postures to bring flexibility & strength to the legs and back. We also work on core strength, shoulder flexibility, and balance. This class meets Mondays @ 6:30pm. View schedule
