Yoga I – Introduction to Yoga
Yoga 1 is offered as a 5-session course meeting weekly. Take this course if you are a beginner or if you are reestablishing your yoga practice. You will benefit from small class sizes and individual attention.
Receive a step-by-step introduction to the theory and practice of classical Yoga, emphasizing the 5 points of perfect health: proper breathing, proper exercise, proper diet, proper relaxation, meditation and positive thinking.
You will also learn most of the 12 basic asanas, the Sun Salutation (Surya Namaskar) and basic pranayama. Explore the postures in detail, learn their benefits and practice accurately, with plenty of relaxation time.
The course will help you understand the system that is followed in all of our All-Levels classes.
