Class Levels

Classes are defined by style, but also by level.

Level 1: Open to complete beginners, those in the initial stages of yoga practice or those seeking a gentler asana practice. Experienced practitioners can also benefit from going back to this level and reconnecting with the basics.

Yotopia regularly runs Beginners Yoga courses. This is a great way of learning the basics, in a structured way where you can see progression throughout the course, and build your confidence to attend our Open Level classes.

Open Level (no class level referenced): Open to all levels from beginners to more experienced practitioners. The teacher adapts the class according to the students.  However we do recommend that complete beginners attend one (preferably 3 or 4) Level 1 classes before moving on to an Open Level class.

Level 2: Level 2 classes  work on a deeper level, introducing more challenging asanas, inversions and backbends. Students should have a good grounding in yoga and a variety of asanas.  Not suitable for beginners.

We have a timetable with colour coding for each of the classes which describe best the beginner’s, open level, and intermediate/advanced classes.  Please email us at to request this timetable to be emailed to you.
