Welcome to Bonda Yoga and the start of a wonderful journey! At Bonda Yoga, our goal is to provide all of our students with a guide to achieve their goals and help navigate through the sometimes confusing maze of options.
As a new practitioner, and with all the choices of yoga classes, it can feel overwhelming to choose the right class. Let us help - below is a list of the various classes offered at Bonda Yoga as well as a suggested progressive order to give all students an idea of where to begin.
Progressive Order of Class Types
All of the classes at Bonda Yoga offer a solid foundation that prepare you for the next level classes. By following the suggested progression you will become stronger in the physical practice and go deeper into the spiritual aspects of the practice as well. Below is a list of class offerings and the suggested order in which to approach them if you are brand new to the practice:
- Gentle Yoga & Restorative Yoga
- Principles of Alignment & Posture Lab
- Vinyasa Flow Beginner
- Vinyasa Flow Open & Yin Yoga
- Vinyasa Flow 1/2
- Vinyasa Flow 2 & Warm Vinyasa
In addition, we offer Posture Clinics which assess your posture through yoga positions to determine habitual patterns of movement that can cause chronic aches and pains. This is a great supplement to other group classes to help you on your way to a long and healthy relationship with the yoga practice. Take a look at our Workshop Schedule to see when these clinics are being offered.
By starting at the class appropriate to your level of fitness, you will build a strong foundation which leads to a safe, injury-free practice. There will also be a noticeable change in your strength, body awareness and alignment as well as your state of mind.
Starting a yoga practice is a journey of body, mind and spirit. All three must be nurtured to reap the amazing benefits that this practice of yoga offers.
