Yoga Fundamentals Course
Yoga is a natural compliment to sitting meditation and helps prepare the body and mind for meditation. Explore the fundamentals of postural yoga at a moderate pace. The many benefits of yoga include its potential for healing and renewal, for reducing stress, and for gaining personal insight.
Beginners and more experienced participants are welcome! The several-week format allows time for knowledge to build cumulatively and the relatively small class sizes allow for the instructor to tailor the class somewhat to suit the participants.
In this class, we will use movement and yoga postures to cultivate:
- Breath awareness
- Conscious relaxation
