Full Description

Yogafirst programs are designed to reach people from those initial expectations but still educate and expand their awareness of yoga and its benefits. It was designed to train the modern psyche into stepping out of the mindsets described above – some people just need to expand their awareness beyond their physical selves in a non-invasive and tangible way.
In essence the style we use is Hatha Yoga. It consists of a very balanced sequence of Asanas but also includes pranayama and meditation. It also makes use of movements in time with breath (vinyasa) which are, every now and then, broken by moments of staying in one pose for a long period of time. It is presented in a way that is honest, open, generous, non-invasive and compassionate. Yogafirst instructors “teach with soul”. They inject personal insight and experience into their classes. They are also excellent communicators and understand and respect different beliefs and points of view. Also and most important, Yogafirst Teachers teach with understanding, knowing the science behind the methods of why yoga works and how. They are not tied to one point of view but are empowered with understanding to find their own yoga style and practice.
