If you are brand new to yoga or want to reconnect with the fundamentals, this Yoga Basics Series is perfect for you!
Come enjoy a supportive and compassionate environment where everyone is a beginner. We will explore basic postures (asana) to get you moving, and breathing techniques (pranayama) to deepen your breath capacity and learn how to connect the two. You will learn how to keep your body safe in the postures, with an emphasis on alignment for healthy practice. You will learn Sanskrit, yoga terminology, discover meditation practices to quiet the chatter of your mind, release stress, and gain insight into the principles of yoga philosophy. Our intention in this series is to help you develop a love for your yoga practice.
We will take the first 4 weeks to break down specific postures used during a typical Hatha yoga class. Each week will have a specific focus and several different poses to work on. Our last week will integrate our first 4 weeks into a one hour Hatha class. Completion of this series will leave you feeling prepared & confident for ongoing classes at the studio or your home practice.
