What's your yoga experience level? Click for more info.
To determine which of the classes offered is suitable for you, I will explain the yoga experience as a progression of levels starting with:

Beginners: Little to no experience on a regular basis: 1) in a class environment 2) with specific movements related to a yoga practice 3) knowledge of strength training 4)  knowledge of stretching the muscles. As a beginner you may already participate in other movement oriented practices that mitigates your experience.

Level 1 students usually have had some formal training such as a beginners yoga series, and attend a regular weekly practice for a least 6 months. They are knowledgeable about basic Hatha yoga poses to increase strength and flexibility.

Level 2 students have had a regular weekly practice for at least 2 years. Who understand the basic Hatha yoga postures and have the ability to go deeper into each pose while strengthening and finding flexibility in their muscle and joints.

Level 3 students  have had a regular weekly practice for a minimum of 5 years with a deeper understanding of Hatha yoga poses with a noticeable increase in strength and flexibility.

Level 4 students have a regular daily practice for 10 years or more.  They have experienced many different styles of yoga that have challenged mind and body. Level 4 practitioners have attained a level of strength and flexibility commensurate with their experience. This experience has allowed the exploration of more difficult or challenging poses that they are able to hold for many breaths.
