Intro to Yoga Series: A 6-week Journey through the Fundamentals
Apr 21, 2022 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm| $120
You have probably heard that practicing yoga is good for you, but wonder if you are right for yoga. You might question your flexibility, strength or body type. You wonder about what to wear and what to expect when you enter a studio class.
This 6-week series is designed to take the mystery out of practicing yoga and introduce students to the fundamentals of an accessible and sustainable yoga practice that benefits every body. We will learn basic yoga postures with a focus on alignment, breathwork and mindfulness as we build strength, flexibility and body awareness in your body. Our goal is to help students feel confident and comfortable taking “Essentials” level classes at Seattle Yoga Arts and elsewhere. This is a practice for life.
What we will cover:
Fundamentals of a physical yoga practice (asana) and breath (pranayama)

Familiarity with with props, when and how to use them
Mindfulness and body awareness
