Level I is a great class for those who are new to Iyengar yoga, a practice based on the teachings of the 91-year-old yoga master B.K.S. Iyengar, author of the classic yoga treatise Light on Yoga. The airy, modern studio has large changing rooms and provides all necessary equipment, and there's also a studio in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn. The class (and Iyengar Yoga in general) incorporates a lot of props —more advanced Iyengar classes may even involve suspension from ropes. You’ll be challenged but not exhausted in this beginners’ class—don’t expect a vigorous workout, but your heart rate will rise as you hold and adjust the poses per the instructor’s detailed directions.
