This course is designed to bring the level one student up to a level 2 practice. We will begin the course by covering the foundational postures and working on the building blocks for level 2 poses. We practice the full range of standing poses, seated poses, basic twists, forward bends, backbends and shoulder-stand will be introduced. From the foundation of strength, stamina, alignment, and understanding created in the first half of the course, we'll move into a level 2 practice. Here we continue with the foundational postures but add in stages of learning handstand, forearm balance, sun salutations, and more challenging backbends. Each new posture is built in stages with step-by-step instructions and modifications offered so students are able to tune into their bodies and practice at their own level of comfort.
