CHOOSE THE RIGHT LEVEL FOR YOU
BEGINNER (LEVEL 1):
Level 1 classes are for those with little or no previous exposure to yoga or pilates. With slow-paced direction and close attention to detail, we provide the foundation for a safe, healthy practice.
Classes for all levels are suitable for beginners, advanced yogis, and everyone in between. Sequences and poses can be modified to fit your specific needs and level of expertise.
Intermediate (Level 3):
Level 3 classes are suited to more experienced yogis with a solid understanding of alignment and a consistent practice. Classes are structured to help you explore challenging poses and deepen your yoga practice.
proper alignment improves circulation, creates inner space in the joints, and brings balanced flow of energy through the whole body
which leads to better health and well being.

NEW STUDENT GUIDELINES
Trying new things can be intimidating, but at Akasha Studio, we provide a supportive, friendly environment where you will feel completely comfortable trying yoga for the first time. Our approach is all about safe, expert instruction and continuous encouragement, giving you the guidance and support you need to build your practice, discover your inner grace, and explore your full potential.
To prepare you for your first class with us, have a look at the new student guidelines and tips below.
Preparing for class
· Have a look at our class descriptions and schedule (above) to choose your preferred Level 1 class.
· Arrive at least 15 minutes before class to allow enough time for registration.
· Wear comfortable, breathable clothing that allows for easy movement. Loose-fitting t-shirts aren’t recommended.
· Bring a bottle of water and a towel.
· Clean yoga mats are available for rent at TT$5.00 per session if needed.
· Cell phones and mobile devices must be placed on silent and preferably left outside of the studio in the storage cubbies.
· Hydrate throughout the day and try not to eat a large meal up to two hours before class.
Inside your first yoga class
· If you have a question, or need help getting into a pose, never be afraid to ask. Always let your teacher know if you need a block, strap or bolster, or if you are experiencing any discomfort.
· When you’re feeling drained or like you just need a minute, feel free to rest in Child’s pose for as long as you need to. Yoga is about listening to your body, not pushing yourself to your breaking point.
· Be positive and patient. Your first yoga class is an exciting new step and we’re here to give all the help and guidance you need. Don’t worry about where other students are at in their practice—you’ll get there, too! Stepping onto your mat each day will bring clarity, peace and self-awareness, no matter where you’re at with your poses.
