Adam Dobbs instructs the following:
Vinyasa Flow - Level 2/3
Vinyasa flow classes link breath and movement to create a continuous fluid flow of postures. Vinyasa means “breathe-synchronized movement” and the beauty of this class is that the sequence, or “flow”, can be different in each class, even with the same instructor. This Level 2/3 class is powerful and dynamic. The yoga practice incorporates arm balances, inversions, and energetic sequences that challenge the body and stimulate the mind. You must have a knowledge of the basic postures. The teacher will provide detailed instruction on how to advance to deeper postures.
Ashtanga Yoga 3
The primary series of the ashtanga system as modified for time. This flowing, set, sequence of postures utilizes ujjayi breath and bandhas (energy locks) to increases muscular strength, flexibility, concentration and to deepen one’s connection to self and Supreme Consciousness. This class is not for anyone new to yoga.
