Yoga 2

We recommend taking both Yoga 1 and Yoga 2 in order to learn the basics and to develop a thorough understanding of yoga practice and theory. In Yoga 2, you will begin to deepen your practice with more challenging variations and longer holding of postures to build strength, flexibility and still the mind.

Kindly note that completion of Yoga 1 is required before registering for Yoga 2.
