Intermediate Yoga OR Transition to Intermediate Yoga Online Or In-Studio
If you are new to Flametree, and have done yoga recently, the best pass to start either of these Intermediate Yoga levels is the Newcomer pass. You get 14 days of unlimited online or in-studio (Darwin) yoga classes for a total of just $29.
In some studios, Intermediate level classes are called Level One. See the sub-heading below for more about this level.
Transition To Intermediate classes are classes that prepare you for the Intermediate level.
Here are sketches and details of Intermediate Yoga postures you will learn and practice at these levels.
More about Transition to Intermediate Yoga level
This level is for those who have completed the Beginner Course, or it’s equivalent. It is the first of the two Intermediate Yoga levels.
Don`t think you have to be strong and flexible to come to these classes. Overtime you will become so. Your teacher helps you make the transition.
At this level there will be some people who have just moved up from Beginners, and others that have been in these classes for a few months. If new you are given slightly different ways to work with some of the asanas.
Essentially you continue to learn how to work with yourself; working with your body, your mind and your breath.
The class sizes are generally smaller so you get quite a lot of guidance. There are a number of different classes to choose from (see Non-Beginner Timetable).
We recommend trying to come to class, online or in-studio, more than once a week. In that way you will really reap the benefits of doing yoga.
In the Transition classes you will consolidate the poses that you learnt in the Beginners Courses, as well as learn a whole new group of poses.
Transition to Intermediate Level Classes are the stepping stone from Beginners to Intermediate Level.You might stay at this level for 6-12 months and then when you feel steady in these new asanas move up. Often your teacher will suggest that you are ready to move.
SPECIAL OFFER to Flametree Beginner students
One Week of FREE Transition classes for all those who have completed a Flametree Beginners Course or have been in Beginners for one month. For online or in-studio yoga classes, or both.
Intermediate Yoga classes (Level One)
At Intermediate Yoga level you will be introduced to an even wider variety of Standing poses, Seated, Forward Bends, Twists, Backbends, Inversions, Restorative poses and basic Pranayama (breathing).
Generally students stay at this level for 6-8 months to a year before moving on to Experienced level. We recommend students attend at least two classes a week at the Intermediate level.
We have found this really helps students develop their yoga practice. Or combine a Transition to Intermediate class and an Intermediate class.
When you feel ready, combine an Intermediate class with an Experienced Level Class.
Your teacher will often give you a nudge and tell you that you are ready to move up to Experienced.
Prepare for Experienced Yoga classes too
Intermediate Yoga classes are the stepping stone between Transition and Experienced level. At this level you start to use your breath to explore the poses to hold them a little longer and correct your poses and become steady, calm and reflective.
There will always be challenges. That keeps it exciting and interesting.
By this stage you will have developed a way of working in the asanas that lets you get quiet… in body and mind.
At this level you find that you are able to sense when ‘overdoing’, and when you under do (hold back, where perhaps there is fear).
You also develop the mental resilience, in due course, which lets you progress onto The Experienced Level.
You can join a Transition to Intermediate & Intermediate level class at any time, providing there is space.
Transition to Intermediate Yoga and Intermediate Yoga students can also use their pass to come to the two Restorative Yoga Classes each week, and the other Special Focus classes in the non-beginner timetable.
These include Women Only, Fifty Plus, Gentle Yoga, Backcare, and Breath Meditation.
