Yoga Workshop: Start from the Ground Up!

Start from the Ground Up!

Are there poses you are struggling with? Learn how alignment can help support and deepen your practice. Start to build awareness in particular parts of your body using Yogic principles and breathing exercises to experience more depth in each asana.

We will also explore the topic of transitions from one pose to the next as well as finding more joy in our asana practice. How can we learn to be more at peace wherever we’re at and let go of the outcome-and still enjoy ourselves? Great for beginners-intermediate-all levels welcome!


Topics to Explore: posture, feet, standing poses-warrior, walking, hips, low back. sitting, Belly (ujjayi) breathing, seated poses, chataranga, down dog, and more! * We will take breaks when needed.
