Charlie Dewes instructs the following:
Vinyasa Yoga - Level 1/2
Vinyasa Yoga - Level 1/2 - This is a basic or slower paced class that is perfect for beginners or those that prefer a slow flow. This class is for all levels regardless of how long you've been practicing as you can never know the basics too well. Whether you are a seasoned and dedicated yogi, a beginner who is brand new or an advanced beginner who has been coming to basics classes but does not feel quite confident enough to move up to an All Levels format, this class offers multiple benefits for all. Although this class will move with a flow it will be a slower flow so the student has ample time to move into and out of the pose effectively keeping the stability that is often lost when the flow becomes too fast. You will enjoy a great selection of poses with fun and interesting sequences, multiple alignment cues but also extended periods of silence once in the pose to allow reconnection with your breath, body and spirit. Come to breathe, move, open and smile.
