This class builds on the teachings from Level 1. More difficult standing poses are introduced as well as preparatory poses for arm balances and inversions (arm balances and inversions themselves are not taught in this class however). Poses that strengthen the shoulders and the upper body are more of a focus than in Level 1.

Geneva grew up doing yoga, and the practice has always been a comfortable space to which she can return for self-exploration. Geneva holds a B.S. in Kinesiology from the University of Maryland, took her first teacher training with YogaFit in 2018, and completed her 200-hour teacher training at Willow Street Yoga Center in 2019. She believes that when students are given space and support, the yogic principles of steadiness and ease can be realized in all movement, on and off the mat. Her classes bring a blend of breath, introspection, functional movement, and anatomy that will inform your understanding of the physical properties of each position–but most importantly, empower you to recognize and create a personal relationship to your unique yoga practice.
