Many people want to try out yoga, but don’t know where to begin!
Many people are worried that walking into a yoga class is like walking into a different world!
Is this you, or do you know anyone who could benefit from yoga but is afraid to come to a class?
It's no secret that the benefits of yoga include stress relief, strength, improved flexibility, increased awareness, and a focused, calm mind, a feeling of connection with self and the world, and an overall feeling of balance in the body, mind, and life.
If you are brand new to yoga or want to reconnect with the basics, The Absolute Beginner Series is the perfect class for you and it’s always a great time to start! Come and enjoy a supportive and compassionate environment where everyone is a beginner. We will explore basic postures (asana) to get you moving and breathing techniques (pranayama) to deepen your breath capacity. You will learn yogic terminology, discover meditation practices to quiet the chatter of your mind, release stress, and gain insight into the principles of yoga philosophy. Our intention in the Absolute Beginner Series is to help you develop a lifelong love for yoga. Each week we will explore a new dimension of the practice. Therapeutic alignment, details, and special needs will be addressed as you learn to use props that aid in the practice and modifications of new postures. Props are a great tool to help your body explore this ancient and transformative practice. Your questions are encouraged and serve to help others in the class gain a deeper understanding. So please don’t be afraid to ask.
The supportive and compassionate environment of this Series taught by our certified instructors will provide you with the necessary foundation to develop a safe and rewarding yoga practice. Walk in a beginner and leave confident to explore the next phase of your practice in our many Level 1 classes.
We are offering the ABSOLUTE YOGA BEGINNER SERIES on Tuesday at 6PM, and Sunday at 10:30AM. Please note that each class of this 8-Week Series will build on each other and is meant to be attended for all the dates in the session; there are no make-up classes and classes are in succession barring any studio/holiday closures.
NEXT BEGINNERS SERIES BEGINS SUN, FEBRUARY 5 AND TUES, FEBRUARY 7, 2017.
Yoga is a discipline that means union. It is the union of physical poses (asana) and breathing techniques (pranayama) that combine to bring the body and mind into harmony. Yoga is a path to that illusive center we are all seeking, it’s a path to inner peace. Most importantly, yoga is a way of life. It is an integrated system of education for the body, mind and spirit. The physical postures provide the body with a way to build strength and muscle tone, increase flexibility and balance, as well as condition the cardio-vascular system. Integrating the breathing techniques with the postures helps to focus the mind as well as generate enormous amounts of energy.
Yoga is for every body. Yoga can be practiced by individuals of all ages and fitness levels. It is non-competitive; thereby everyone practices at his or her own pace. At ABSOLUTE YOGA, instructors are particularly mindful of the individual needs and abilities of each student. Yoga is a process, not a goal.
