Start the year off right with yoga!

This course is Yoga Basics — a 4 week workshop series designed for anyone wanting to explore yoga for the first time or build a more solid foundation based on fundamental poses.

Each 1 hour virtual workshop will include an introduction to basic poses in the Hatha Yoga tradition (including Ashtanga, Yin, and Vinyasa), modifications for those with physical limitations, an understanding of the physical benefits of various postures, and personal guidance on alignment and best practice to avoid injury and get the most out of your practice. The workshops are intended to be virtually interactive, so any questions you’ve wanted to ask about yoga are welcome! The final workshop will help students create a 20 minute at-home practice based on yoga fundamentals to launch you on your yoga journey!
