Practicing Experienced Yoga
Experienced classes are for experienced Iyengar yoga students who have completed the Beginner and Intermediate Courses at Flametree Yoga Studio or similar Iyengar Yoga Beginner and Intermediate Courses elsewhere. In other words in order to come to this class you should have been practising Iyengar Yoga for at least a couple of years
In these classes there can be a wide range of student capability each working to their own capacity. Some students will have just moved up from Intermediate while others may have been at this level for years. At this level all the different inversions are taught as well as Pranayama (breathing).
Experienced classes are open to casual attendance – you can join these classes at any time. You can choose to pay by DIRECT DEBIT, or buy a 10 CLASS PASS or pay at the CASUAL RATE. It is a far cheaper option to use Direct Debit where the more classes that you do a week makes the rate for each class much cheaper (see Fees Below) Plus there are significant benefits to be had if you are part of the Direct Deposit payment system ( see table below) We encourage students at this level to do at least 2 classes per week as well as their own home practice. If you are new to the studio it is best to phone before coming to check on availability.
Periodically we offer intensive classes for experienced students. These are theme based classes designed to deepen students understanding. Generally held in the first or second week of each month. Check the Notice board page for dates and times. Suitable for experienced Intermediate and Experienced level students.
Relax and Renew classes are perfect classes for Transition to Intermediate, Intermediate and Experienced level students to learn how to surrender in order to reach a place of deep physical and mental relaxation. In each class the poses practised are sequenced to create space in the body, flush out impediments which block the blood from flowing in the blood vessels and at the same time re-energise the nervous system, nourish the endocrine system and strengthen the immune system. In this class props are used to allow students to hold poses for long periods of time and recover from the pressures of the week.
Private lessons can be arranged at $85/hour.
You can also pay with credit card or with cash for your 10 day class pass or casual class.
