The 5 Pillars

At Pure Yoga, we care for the development and growth of our student’s yoga practice; with this in mind, we developed the 5 Pillars. This is a system that categorises classes in 5 different Pillars and provides a clear path for students to be able to choose which classes to attend.

Each class is categorised under one Pillar according to the physical and mental requirements needed to attend such class and the results that come after it. Besides being assigned to a Pillar, classes are also categorised in Levels according to the skill and knowledge required to attend the class. The 5 pillars are: Healing,Grounding, Dynamic, Hot and Specialised.
