Introduction to Yoga
April 9, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 6:30 pm on Monday, repeating until April 16, 2018
This 6 week workshop is designed to educate the student/client that has never taken a yoga class, as well as the student who either has little experience, or would just like to refine their current practice. The basis of the program is to teach the student how to do a variety of yoga postures (asana) and how each posture can work for them personally. We will work with breath work (pranayama) techniques, deep relaxation/meditation (dyana) techniques for creating calmness/peacefulness. Learning these techniques will help in lowering physical stress, emotional, and mental stress levels. There will be a strong focus on developing strength, flexibility, balance, mobility, and overall health and wellness in a non-harming (ahimsa) way will.
We will use bolsters, blocks and straps as needed for each individual person and will learn how to use those props correctly to assist in postures. There will also be a brief presentation on the etiquette, philosophy, history and science of yoga. BC/BS Wellness benefit and IHA Flex fit card accepted for this workshop.
