LEVEL 1 – An introductory class for students just beginning yoga or for those who want to review the basics. Poses, breath awareness and yogic fundamentals are introduced and broken down in Vinyasa style emphasizing Prema principles of correct alignment, steady breath, ease and joy.
LEVEL 1/2 – All of the components of our Level 1 classes including the safely guided introduction of more challenging sequences, inversion preparation, breathing techniques and meditation. A bridge between basics and intermediate.
LEVEL 2 – This class is a beautiful offering for students to practice at an Intermediate level. Classes will build endurance and strength but move at a slower pace than the Level 2/3 classes. The foundations of more advanced inversions, backbends and arm balances will be taught.
LEVEL 2/3 – Our signature class. In Prema Yoga Brooklyn’s Level 2/3 classes, expect beautiful music, sweaty creative vinyasa flow, hands-on alignment, spiritual teachings, music and meditation. These classes are challenging and will leave you energized and inspired. Flow and sequencing varies according to teacher. 1 year steady yoga practice recommended.
LEVEL 3 – This class invites the more seasoned practitioner, teacher trainee or existing teacher into their own self sufficiency. It offers the student a great entry to Home Practice by listening to the teachers instructions, making their own adjustments in poses, and fueling intensity as desired. You will be guided to advanced (level 3) poses which include Inversions, advanced Arm Balances, deep Backbends, and bound poses.
OPEN LEVEL – Our open classes are structured as Intermediate level with modifications offered for more beginning students and deeper versions of postures offered for more advanced practitioners. Teachers are seasoned to watch the room and cater the class according to the students present.
ALIGN & FLOW – classes weave effective alignment technique with energizing, progressive sequences to create clarity and balance in non-Vinyasa style. Perfect for all levels.

Teachers will move around the room giving specific guidance, instruction and assists. Perfect for individual attention to advance one’s practice.
