This is a great class for beginning and intermediate students as well as those looking to further their understanding of the foundations and subtleties of yoga poses and breathing techniques. Yoga Basics focuses on alignment, adapting poses, working with breath and increasing flexibility, strength and balance. Assistance by way of props may be utilized to allow greater access, opening and awareness throughout the body, and to allow students of various levels to practice safely and comfortably. Self exploration occurs through discovery and release of physical tension, habitual patterns and psychological resistence. As individual practice continues, a student’s ability to relax and concentrate improves and self understanding is enhanced.
