Full Description

New to yoga and looking to learn the fundamentals? This 4-week workshop series is designed for brand new students, as well as more seasoned practitioners interested in building a strong foundation for a sustainable, lifelong practice. We'll explore the basics of a vinyasa yoga class, pay special attention to safe alignment in foundational postures, and begin to experience what yoga is all about. Each session will build upon lessons learned in previous modules, giving students a chance to hone and practice new skills. Students are highly encouraged to attend each part of the series, though not required.
Module 1: Catch Your Breath | Saturday, January 10th, 2:00-3:30pm
Learn to connect breath with movement in sun salutations, a dynamic sequence of asanas (yoga poses).

Module 2: Find Your Footing | Saturday, January 17th, 2:00-3:30pm
Starting from Tadasana, Mountain Pose, we'll focus on the architecture of standing postures to increase balance and body awareness, strength and flexibility.

Module 3: Take a Seat | Saturday, January 24th, 2:00-3:30pm
Introduction to floor work, including safe forward folds, twists, and backbends using core engagement and breath as your guide.

Module 4: Start the Journey | Sunday, January 31st, 2:00-3:30pm
In this final module, we'll practice the skills learned throughout the series and discuss what's next for your yoga practice.
