Sweetbay Yoga Welcomes Yogis of All Skill Levels

Whether you're a newbie or an experienced yogi, you'll immediately feel welcome at Sweetbay Yoga. The Bethesda studio promises classes for all skill levels in the ancient tradition of Iyengar. This precise practice requires proper alignment and focused breath in order to achieve relief from stress, ease aches and pains, and build stronger muscles.

Newer students should start at a lower-level class like Level 1/2 Iyengar. It's here that you'll learn the fundamental poses and breathing techniques of Iyengar, as well as attempt a few more complicated inversions once you feel comfortable. Gentle yoga is another great place to start since it moves at a slower pace and focuses on alignment and flexibility, as opposed to advanced postures. When you do want to take your practice to the next level, try a Level 2 Iyengar class.
