A Guide To Shine Classes & Class Levels
Our basic categories of classes, based on “fitness” level are listed and then followed by specific class suggestions with brief descriptions. See our MindBody scheduler to see specific class times, teacher bios, full class descriptions, and to sign up for classes.
Ground Floor Classes - Meditative and/Or Relaxing/Restorative Classes
Lobby Level - Gentle, Daily Function, Regenerative Movement Classes, Pre & Post-Natal
Level 1 - Beginner & Basic Posture-Based Yoga Classes: Slow Pace, Simple Transitions, Detailed & Supportive Instruction
Level 2* - These classes build on the basics with variations offered for students to work in a more gentle — or challenging — way in order to suit personal needs and goals. Classes build on basic postures, may include some slow flow, and may introduce more challenging posture and breath-work variations.
Level 3* - These classes include opportunities to build strength, flexibility, and other fitness aspects. They include our Align & Flow Classes and Intermediate/Advanced classes. These classes whether they include flow or not are likely to include the introduction & practice of inversions, arm-balances, and deeper variations of backbends, twists, and hip-openers.
*Level 2 and 3 classes are our fitness/athletic-level classes. These classes include a mix of posture, flow, and more traditional yoga practices like mindfulness and conscious breath engagement which help students build the components of fitness (like tone, balance, strength, etc) while practicing with traditional yoga themes (like harmony in movement, energy balance, skillful action, etc). We have several levels/styles of these types of classes so that students can come in to a class that serves your personal needs and goals whether you are just beginning yoga practice or are an experienced practitioner.
