This moderately-paced class provides a solid foundation for your yoga practice, refining your knowledge of important Hatha Yoga basics. You'll explore the major categories of yoga postures--standing standing, balancing, seated & reclining postures, cleansing twists, beginning backbends, basic inversions. We'll also practice the Sun Salutation or other "flows" of yoga poses & relaxation.
You will engage in yoga stretches & warm-ups that increase range of motion & prepare the body for the deeper postures. Plus learn proper alignment of poses, and breathing techniques that both calm & energize you. You will gain greater body awareness & learn ways to adapt poses as needed to practice to your safe yoga edge.
You'll be encouraged to practice Kripalu Yoga-style mindfulness, to challenge yourself appropriately, and honor your body's individual needs. You will experience greater flexibility and strength, stress relief, improved posture and focus, and mind-body-spirit harmony.
