[Canceled] Vinyasa Yoga 101 with Richard Guevara
Mar 1, 2020| $95
Vinyasa Yoga 101 in an introductory 4-week series. It is the perfect place to learn about this flowing style of practice. Vinyasa yoga incorporates smooth, fluid movement that is synchronized with breath. Sometimes referred to as “meditation in motion,” this practice promotes physical strength, flexibility and mental focus.
Taught progressively, using demonstration and discussion, this series emphasizes proper alignment, graceful transitions, and safe modifications. We will learn basic sun salutation sequences, traditional poses, and core integration exercises to strengthen and stretch, both body and mind. Each class will bring focus to yogic breathing, as “ujjayi breath” informs and guides our practice.
We recommend Intro I and/or exposure to yoga asana prior to this series. This series will prepare you for classes on our weekly schedule like Gentle Yoga, Vinyasa, Hatha Fusion, and Strong & Slow Yoga.
Classes are held online on Monday evenings at 6:30pm PST.
Mar. 01st, 2021 – Mar. 22nd, 2021
From 6:30pm – 7:45pm
*This 4-week series takes place 100% online. After registration, Yogabliss will reach out with more information detailing how to join us online.
*Yoga props such as 2 yoga blocks, a blanket, and a strap will be useful throughout this series. Please consider purchasing ahead of time.
*Recordings will be made available of each session for students. However, we do encourage you to join live if possible so you can ask questions and be in community.
