Class Descriptions
Open The Sivananda Open Class is vigorous yet relaxing class with the emphasis on deep breathing, relaxation, and concentration. This traditional and classical session of training starts with initial relaxation (Shavasana), followed by breathing exercises (Kapalabhati and Anuloma Viloma), six sets of sun salutation (Surya Namaskara), the standard program of 12 basic postures (Asanas), and the final relaxation. A class lasts 90 minutes, and allows for some variation as given by the teacher. Not suitable for complete beginners; all students are advised to take a beginners' course before attending an open class. See: Beginner's Courses

Intermediate

1.5 hour class: offers more variations, deeper stretches and is a bridge between the open class and the
advanced class.
Advanced 2 hour class: in this class the postures are held for longer and variations are explored. We recommend taking the Yoga 2 (intermediate) and/or Yoga 3 (advanced) level courses as preparation, as well as maintaining a daily home practice.
