Level 2/3 is designed for students who are prepared to deepen their understanding of philosophy and asana. Students should be relatively independent in their practice, and know many of the names of the more common postures. Level two goes into more intricate understanding of breath and alignment, thus, familiarity with general alignment and movement with breath is expected. Instruction will be given primarily with verbal cues and hands on assists, not visual demonstrations. Students should be comfortable with rigorous surya namaskara; advanced standing balances (i.e. bird of paradise), forward bending (i.e. kurmasana) and backbending (full urdhva dhanurasana), headstand and other inversions. Modifications are fine, but students are expected to have strong knowledge of modifications. Students with a history of injuries are advised to check with the instructor before planning to attend the class.
