Depth in Basics: Exploring the Intricacies of Your Practice
Join Sarah Meyer for a 4-part yoga experience designed to help you grow your practice through a focused study into the fundamentals of different posture categories. Asana practice is not only about doing fancier poses, but is instead about creating a pathway of awareness from your outer form towards deeper levels of inner experience. Whether you are a new or experienced practitioner, this series will give you some tangible ways and modifications to work with your body to create and experience your ultimate alignment and bring a new understanding to your practice.

Deepen your knowledge of the fundamentals of each posture category in four Saturday sessions over two months. Sessions are scheduled three weeks apart, to allow ample opportunity to apply what you have learned substantially before the next scheduled date. You will become stronger, more confident, and more able to implement each session by practically building on the series as it unfolds!
April 14 -- Standing & Supine
Explore standing, balancing & supine postures. We will work from the base up to create a solid foundation for these powerhouse postures; as well as look at how the shapes work together in different planes of orientation to provide a greater understanding of our own bodies.
May 5 -- Forward Folds & Twists
Explore forward folding and twisting postures. We will work towards finding effective & efficient ways to enter into these asanas. Focus will be on how to effectively lengthen your back body in a forward fold, where to place your strength to increase your stretch, & cultivating an understanding how your core strength relates strongly to both forward folds & twists.
May 26 -- Backward Bending
Starting small and working bigger, we will explore some of the nuances within a range of backward bending postures. Time will be spent finding harmony between stretch and strength to create uniformity in your backward bends.
June 16 -- Arm Balances
We will work with a variety of arm balances to explore different approaches and stages of entering into these postures. We will also work with some drills to build strength and confidence as you head towards these fun & playful postures.
