There is no pre-requisite for a Level 1 Yoga Beginners Intensive. This course will start at the very beginning, and gradually advance over the days and weeks of practice. Each Level 1 (and Level 2) Intensive is different, as Sabu navigates through the course based on the participants in the class. For this reason, any student, from any previous experience level, is welcome to join a Level 1 Intensive to re-fresh and re-charge a current practice or start from the very beginning.
Classes will be daily from Monday to Friday
HeightsYoga and Wellness
The Yoga postures (asanas) and the breathing exercises (pranayama) are meditative and serve to harmonize the body, the mind and the intellect. This aids in:
Alternating focus on movement, breath and conscious relaxation brings awareness within, and encourages calmness—a real experience of ancient Yoga that will bring you a sense of well-being. Leave feeling peaceful and rejuvenated.
The pre-requisite for a Level 2 Yoga Intensive is the completion of a previous Level 1 or 2 Yoga Intensive with Sabu. The course will move gradually forward from where the Level 1 left off, but will not start at the very beginning, as Level 1 Beginners Intensives do.
Throughout the Month-Long Level 2 Intermediate Yoga Intensive you will continue to develop, strengthen and build the Yoga practice that you learned in your Level 1 Yoga Beginners Intensive. You will have more time in this class which will be used to dive deeper into relaxation, variations of the Yoga postures and more specific philosophy about Yoga, positive thinking, mediation and more. Yoga is a never-ending journey, and the Level 2 Yoga Intensive is meant to further challenge and expand your knowledge and practice of it.
The method you will be learning comes from the Sivananda Yoga Tradition, founded by Swami Vishnudevananda in 1957, who came to the West from India to share the great wisdom of Yoga with all of us. Swami Vishnudevananda, disciple of Swami Sivananda, introduced a very methodic system of Yoga practice for a balanced life, including twelve basic yoga postures (asanas), relaxation (savasana), breathing exercises (pranayama) and sun salutations (surya namaskar). You may also be introduced to other various practices of Pranayama, Kriyas, philosophy and Meditation techniques.
Following level II, students who are ready to commit to their practice in a new way can enrol in our teacher Trainings. Talk to Sabu about this at anytime.
