Level Two
 

Yoga for students who have established a consistent yoga practice for over two years or more

Level 2

Level 2 course classes are for students with a consistent yoga practice of over two years at Level 1 including six months of Intro Level 2 classes.  

These classes are for students looking to explore the self-awareness and challenge yoga offers in greater detail.  

This class, like all classes at Yoga Path, is open to casual attendance as well as course participants.

Level 2 classes consistently include:

►  Pranayama

►  Yoga philosophy

►  Yoga mantra

►  Yoga asana at a slightly more challenging level than Intro Level 2 classes, such as full inversions (headstand, forearm balance, shoulderstand and handstands).

Are you ready to take your yoga to the next level? Come along and give it a go, you might surprise yourself.

As such we have paused our Level 2 Course structure and instead offer Level 2 classes in a 'stand alone' format, each class open to casual attendance by all Iyengar Yoga students with an established practice.

One student's story level 2

Carole McTavish

Carole, what brought you to yoga?

 

"I used to swim but had to stop because of injury.  I was looking for a replacement - preferably something I could do before work and keep doing as I got older.  I'd walk my dogs past Yoga Path at 6am as people were gathering for class and I thought it looked warm and inviting.  I decided to give it a go."

 

How has practising yoga helped you?

 

"I'm more focused, both mentally and physically stronger and think I have more patience and cope better with stressful situations.  Mastering things I never thought I'd be able to do, like headstand, has taught me that if I have the right attitude and keep trying that nothing is impossible. I've practising at Yoga Path since January 2008.  I started in Beginners and completed two full courses before I felt ready to move to Level 1.  When I finally plucked up the courage, I was surprised to find it wasn't as daunting as I'd imagined it to be.  Before I knew it I was practising four times a week in Level 2/3 classes.  Now I can't imagine life without Yoga.  I love that its both challenging and relaxing at the same time and no matter how hard I try to master the asana, I'll never stop learning."

 

What keeps you coming back to Yoga Path?

 

"I'm hooked - its real "me" time.  I really like the atmosphere - its as warm and welcoming as I expected it to be and I felt comfortable there from the very first class.  Nicole and Tom are such knowledgeable,  supportive teachers and their classes, whilst challenging also remain fun."

What is Iyengar Yoga?

Iyengar Yoga is esentially Hatha yoga as taught by BKS Iyengar, one of the great yoga teachers of our time. Hatha Yoga is the physical form of the ancient Indian practice of yoga; Hatha Yoga as interpreted by Iyengar emphasises postural alightment within Asana, the yoga poses. The word yoga itself, means union. This reflects the ultimate goal of yoga, being the realisation that individual consciousness is, in fact, one with universal consciousness. Hatha Yoga focuses on the union of yoga to evolve the body/brain connection through physical exercises and breath-control to encourage better health and mental and spritual clarity over the long term.

What happens in class?

In class we place special focus on developing strength, endurance, flexibility, and correct postural alignment, while learning to engage the energy of the breath. Differing individual needs of age and fitness are acknowledged.

What are the benefits of yoga?

Hatha yoga helps to generate physical, mental and emotional balance. Students often experience a better sense of health through greater body awareness. Strength and flexibility generally improve with practice, along with stress reduction, better mental health, and improved circadian rhythm.

Do I need to bring anything to class?

As we navigate Covid-19 management protocols, during this transitionary period of re-opening the studio, students will need to bring their own basic yoga props to class including their own mat, two yoga blocks and a yoga belt. Students are asked to also BYO clean pillowcase to cover studio pads and bolsters (these will be the only props available for student use). Hand sanitiser is provided for students to sanitise before and after handling in-house props. Basic yoga props are available for purchase from the studio.
