INTRODUCTION TO BLY CLASSES

Each class type emphasizes different mental and physical functions, as well as offers a unique time structure. While determining which class is right for you today, note the number of minutes you’ll spend in each part of the Class Cycle.

At BLY, there are no beginner or advanced classes; however some classes are better suited for learning.  Our classes are ordered by pace of movement from slowest to fastest, but keep in mind that slow does not necessarily mean easy, and fast does not necessarily mean hard.  We invite you to challenge yourself, whether that means moving slower than you’re comfortable, or picking up the speed if you tend to prefer a steadier pace.

Yoga is about shifting perspectives, so find a new point of view and observe your mind’s response. Often what we’re most resisting is what we most need.
