Yoga 101 is a four week series designed to introduce new students to the fundamentals of yoga. (Not new to yoga, but would like to brush up on the fundamentals? You are welcome to join!) After completing your four weeks of introductory practice you will have gained the skills to have a wellrouded home practice or feel comfortable to join in group classes at a studio.

Week 1:

We will discuss the benefits of yoga and the different styles of yoga. Using the framework of the 8 Limbs of Yoga, we will discover the importance of not only the physical practice, but the benefits of breathwork, mindfulness and meditation. We will begin working on basic poses and the importance of personal alignment and why yoga props are beneficial.

Week 2:

We will continue building on basic poses and their variations and modifications. Breathwork will be added to enhance the experience of the physical shapes. We will also begin a discussion on Sanskrit and why we use it to keep the yogic tradition alive.

Week 3:

We will cover the basics of sun salutations and including a mini-workshop on chatarunga dandasna. We will learn what it means to "flow" in a vinyasa style class.

Week 4:

A review of the series with a vinyasa flow practice, plus a practice in restorative yoga and a yoga nidra meditation with intention setting to culminate our time together.

Please note:

  • The four weeks build on each other so please commit to attending each week if possible. No discounts, credits or refunds will be issued if you need to miss a session.

  • Mats and yoga props provided (or feel free to bring your own).

  • Not new to yoga, but would like to brush up on the fundamentals? You are welcome to join!

Your investment includes:
