3 Levels of Practice
Avita Yoga uses shapes to identify and resolve restrictions that impede the body’s natural movement. We take a consistent multi-level approach that works for people of all ages and abilities, spanning three different levels of practice.
The most resounding benefits occur in the level 1, Green classes. It’s what most people need and it’s where the majority of benefits are realized. The shapes and sequences are attainable and appropriate for all, so neither the body nor the mind is overwhelmed. This is important. We can’t struggle and heal at the same time! The soothing pressure induces healing in the body and mind. Many are drawn to simplicity because it’s where we get results.
A student will be ready to advance to level 2 Orange classes after a basic understanding of Avita Yoga is attained. The time to advance will vary and should not be rushed. It could be days, weeks, or months depending on the body and mind’s ability to adapt to this unique style of yoga. The whole point is to resolve chronic pain issues, improve mobility and attain a state of lasting peace. It does no good to push the body if there are still unresolved patterns. A student will naturally desire more complex shapes and classes with time and practice, but not before its time.
Level 3, Red classes are for those who have been in Avita Yoga for many months if not years. They are also appropriate for those who are naturally flexible and perhaps injured themselves in contemporary yoga practices. Most enjoy remarkable benefits by practicing three to four times per week. The formula that fits best for many is two to three Green classes for every one Orange class. All practice must be foundational in nature. If you push or try to advance too fast, it will work against you. Let Avita Yoga find its way into your body and life. Welcome this new way, and it will be truly helpful.
