YOGA FUNDAMENTALS for BEGINNERS

This course is designed for BEGINNERS who want to make sure they are learning postures correctly and with proper adaptations for their body type and constitution. Our intention is to provide a safe and solid foundation for the practice of postures while imparting the benefits of yoga for reducing the impact of stress on our system.

A STEP ABOVE FUNDAMENTALS 

This course is designed for people who have taken our Yoga Fundamental Course as well as anyone who has had some experience with yoga in the past. While still teaching the basics of yoga practice in an organized and gradual manner, this course includes new postures and continued emphasis on proper breathing. 

MULTI-LEVEL CLASSES

The teachers guiding multi-level classes at our school have many years of experience in teaching and have been specifically trained to adapt postures based on the needs of the participants. Sometimes, two teachers will also co-operate in teaching a class so one teacher can guide the practice and the other can observe and propose adaptations. No two classes are ever the same!

GENTLE YOGA

This slower paced continuing series offers a wider range of students the opportunity to discover or continue enjoying the benefits of a yoga practice. Although gentle, the guidance for these classes will encourage students to develop their full potentials while respecting body conditions, energy levels, or temperament. Greater emphasis is placed on modifications and adaptations so the practice will meet the student’s individual needs. As with all our classes, intentional breathing linked to bodily movements is an important part of the approach. 

RESTORATIVE YOGA

This class is ideal for individuals who have particular health issues and can also accommodate people who have difficulty moving to the floor. In this case, guidance can be adapted so a person can follow the class from a chair. Please write David at info@upstateyogainstitute.com if you are considering this class so you can talk about your needs prior to signing up.

ON-GOING YOGA

The study and practice of yoga is the endeavor of a lifetime. In our on-going classes, students deepen their understanding and practice of all aspects of yoga (asanas, pranayama, philosophy, meditation). Even though these are not meant to be a training ground for teaching yoga and we do not provide any certification, participants in our on-going classes receive the level of expertise and in-depth explanations one would receive in a teacher training program.
