General

General yoga class levels are for students who have been attending Iyengar yoga classes regularly for at least two years.

Classes are more intensive than at Beginners level and you will be introduced to a wider variety of asanas, for example, Sirsasana (head balance) and Sarvangasana (shoulder balance). In addition, general classes will introduce pranayama into some of the classes.
