Beginner Yoga Course

Yoga Class

 Beginners Yoga Course!

Learn the Essentials of Yoga and Attend Your Next Yoga Class with Confidence. Yoga is truly wonderful—it helps rejuvenate our body, mind, and spirit. It also helps us discover the greatest version of ourselves possible!

There are many important points that are often skipped in a yoga class due to large size yoga classes and mixed levels, which makes it difficult for an instructor to mention some of the most important aspects in a yoga practice; like for example, the breathing (different from regular breathing), body alignment, Drishti (one point focus), bandhas (locking or engaging certain areas within the body), and much more. Without these practices mentioned above, the yoga practice is incomplete.

The start date is Monday April 29, 2024 and ends May Wednesday 29, 2024.

Yoga for beginners—yoga students will explore the fundamentals of yoga. Although this course is mostly geared towards the yoga novice, still, this course can also benefit someone who feels they need a refresher on the basics in yoga

The fundamentals are important and will set a strong foundation in the yoga practice for a yoga novice. A brief history of yoga will be introduced, additionally, this course will put a strong emphasis on yoga breathing and how breathing together with the yoga movements (asanas or poses) are essential for a beneficial yoga practice.

You will learn ujjayi breathing and how to synchronize this yoga breathing method with the yoga movements; when you move in and out of poses, and when you hold a pose; this is called vinyasa. Vinyāsa links one pose to the next, and without the correct breathing method, it is virtually impossible to practice vinyasa, or any yoga asanas for that matter.

Although there are recommended textbooks for this course; you will receive handouts that contain plenty of information.

Recommended textbooks for this course are (most of the text is available online):
“The Sivananda Companion to Yoga: A Complete Guide to the Physical Postures, Breathing Exercises, Diet, Relaxation, and Meditation Techniques of Yoga”

What you will learn:

  • A brief history of yoga.

  • Vinyāsa; which is a flowing sequence of movements synchronizing yogic breathing methods (Ujjayi breathing) that link one pose to the next, and more!
