All students can benefit from a fundamentals class! The best way to build an authentic, strong and safe yoga practice is to begin with the basics and to always keep a beginner’s mind.
It is the alignment of the body in our asanas (poses) that keep us safe and allow us to achieve and enjoy the intended benefits of the pose. Without proper alignment there is risk of discomfort, frustration and even injury.  Many students taking our Level 1, 2 or 3 classes have never taken an introductory level class. Some have learned alignment from watching other students or best guessing it. As much as teachers try to watch everyone in class, sometimes we are unable to give the detailed attention needed by every student.
For this reason, we offer our Yoga Fundamentals workshop as an option for ALL yogis. Our fundamentals workshop moves slowly and includes detailed instruction on alignment as well as gentle hands-on assists. They are a wonderful way to “re-learn” some of the basic poses and allow you to really focus on what is happening with your body and breath. You might be surprised to learn that you’ve been misaligned in many of your poses and this is the chance to correct those issues before they cause harm.
For beginner’s, this workshop is the best way to begin a yoga practice. Starting with the basics allows you to build the strength, flexibility and knowledge needed to move forward with your practice safely and organically. Nothing is more frustrating than taking a class and being completely unfamiliar with what’s going on. In addition to the alignment of the poses we discuss yoga history, etiquette as well as basic yoga breathing and meditation techniques.
We encourage our beginners and challenge our experienced yogis to access their beginner’s mind and try Yoga Fundamentals!
See you on the Mat!
