Dynamic/Advanced Yoga Class

If you are a seasoned practitioner and are keen to deepen your experience further, then this yoga class is for you. In this class, prāṇāyāma (breathing exercises) rounds are increased, yoga āsanas (postures) are held longer and advanced variations will challenge both body and mind.  Postures held longer help in stilling the mind into silence and also understanding the difference between putting effort into holding a posture (beginner/intermediate) and effortlessly holding a posture (advanced). This class is not suitable for beginners.
