Beginners, you are not alone
Yoga Essentials for Beginners at Indra's Grace Yoga
is our four-week introductory program for those who are new to yoga.
Our program establishes the foundation for a lifelong yoga practice with emphasis on breath work, physical alignment, strength and flexibility. We will allow for plenty of time and assistance each week, and will use props as needed to make each yoga pose work for your body. We will start from the ground up and help you build your practice in a way that helps you establish confidence in your practice.
Schedule: Thursdays April 19th, 26th, May 3rd, and 10th 6:45-8:00pm
We will begin by laying the foundation with a short introduction to yoga history and philosophy and breathing techniques. After an introduction to breathing techniques our focus will be on standing and balancing poses.
This class will introduce the concept of muscular engagement. You will also learn to always root to rise! You will practice standing postures from the head to toes in addition to some seated and hip opening poses, as well as a new breathing technique (pranayama). Class includes a review of standing and balancing poses.
Our focus will be on physical alignment for a safe practice of yoga poses. You will learn why it's important to always allow the heart to lead the way in your physical alignment and how to set up your postures correctly. This week we will introduce twisting poses and backbends and another new breathing technique, as well as review the previous week’s seated and hip-opening poses.
This week we put it all together! Our class will be a complete Beginning Yoga for All Bodies class so you can experience a “real” studio class under the instructor’s watchful eye. Additionally, we will discuss the resources available to you to expand your practice.
