A typical open level class includes pranayama (breathing exercises), warm-ups including Sun Salutations (Surya Namaskar), basic asanas (postures) and deep relaxation. The focus is on mastering the basic asanas from which variations are then added to further deepen the practice. Different asanas allow for the systematic movement of every major part of the body in a balanced way that enhances prana or life force energy, keeping the mind quiet and without the need to think beyond each individual pose. Additional variations may also be taught.
