Have you always wanted to try yoga, but assumed you weren’t flexible enough? Have you been to some basic yoga classes but left feeling overwhelmed because the class wasn’t “basic” at all? Then come to this beginner’s orientation, and you will learn that yoga is about enhancing the quality of your attention and equanimity, not torturing the body into wild contortions. We will break down the alignment of some basic yoga postures to build strength and flexibility. You will experience how linking your breath to movement can help to create a meditative focus. The workshop will conclude with the practice of savasana, where you can deeply relax, and recharge yourself for life off of the mat!

- Sunday, September 24th w/ Kelly Eaudailey
