What is a session class?

Many classes at the Yoga Path are taught in “sessions”. This is like a semester of school. The format allows for a continuity of instruction, so poses and practices can be introduced, developed, and refined over a period of time as with most learning. So students enroll to attend a weekly class. (Some choose to come more often.) In the event a student is unable to attend their regular weekly class, making up that class time during the session is recommended and encouraged.
“Drop-ins” students may come to any “session” class, keeping in mind they may not get the full benefit of continuous instruction. There are also several purely “Drop-in” classes available during the week. See schedule for details.
