classes for beginners

The first thing to understand is that you can get started with hatha yoga just as you are. Sometimes people think they need to change their diet, lose weight, or get in shape before starting yoga. Not so! We offer beginner classes that take you step by step through the essential yoga poses (asanas) so you can feel confident about practicing them safely. We teach you conscious breathing skills for a deeper experience of the asanas, for stress management, and for meditation.

Weather you are new to yoga, or an experienced practitioner wanting to deepen your understanding of the basics of hatha yoga, we have various options for you: a Beginners Yoga Imersion,  and two regular ongoing classes that will support you your practice:

 

Beginners Yoga Immersion

Led by Natacha Sagalovsky RYT500.
Offered periodically, next session TBA.

This Beginners Yoga Immersion will introduce you to the basic building blocks of a yoga practice, and the five levels that serve as guidelines to optimize your experience of yoga practice.

By learning to move with, 1) Alignment of the body, 2) Conscious breathing, 3) Inner awareness, and 4) Releasing tensions in the body and system 5) Presence, or a change of state.

Once you understand how to use these tools, you can always bring them to your yoga practice to experience a greater flow of energy and sense of well-being.
