Yoga, a several thousand year old tradition, is a system of practices and philosophy, designed to align the mind, body and breath. A regular practice of yoga creates a complete sense of wellbeing.
In this yoga class you will learn level 1 asanas (yoga postures) in a supportive environment. You will be given time to become familiar with the asanas as you learn how to breathe well and move with correct and safe alignment. We will explore standing and seated asanas, leading to basic backbends and inversions (upside down postures), with all asanas being completely accessible to beginners. You will also learn the benefits of each asana, how to prevent injury in yoga and how the ancient teachings can be used to affect your daily life in a positive way.
