Level 1 moves through physical postures at a very moderate pace, usually starting with a sun salution series. Level 1 offers verbal instruction in alignment during the flow, but less than you will find in Beginner Basics, and more than you will find in Mixed Level. Often included is chanting, pranayama (breathing exercises), yoga philosophy and meditation. All levels of practitioner are welcome at Level 1 classes, including Beginners, although those very new to yoga should bring an understanding that the class will be moving and flowing.
