While postures are stepping stones into the practice of yoga, yoga practice and philosophy is deep and vast. This yoga class emphasizes synchronizing mind, body and breath in a guided practice comprising three key areas: asanas or physical postures, pranayama or breathing practices, and relaxation techniques. Join us in exploring the benefits of yoga, including strengthening and toning the body, improving flexibility, mobility and balance, as well as enhancing an overall sense of physical and emotional wellbeing.
The class welcomes newcomers with little or no previous experience, as well as regular practitioners interested in fine-tuning the basics of yoga.
Participants will need to bring their own yoga mats and equipment.
