Yoga Fundamentals:

A Workshop for Beginners with Amy Reed

Saturday, January 28th, 1:30-4:30pm

$35 for workshop only;

$50 for workshop PLUS 3 classes* (only offered to new students to The Yoga House)

 

hh-tyh2016_0495We’ve all heard of the widely known physical and mental benefits of a consistent yoga practice. We know that when we hear the word “yoga” we think of flexibility, stress relief and mindfulness. But for some, making that step to experience those well-known benefits is not as easy as walking out the door and getting to a class. Often people feel intimidated and unsure of joining a group class for their first experience. Many questions arise: What type of yoga should I try? What’s with all the breathing? If I’m not flexible, can I do yoga? Maybe you’ve already been to a class but felt too uncomfortable and unsure of yourself to return.

This 3-hour interactive workshop is designed to quell those hesitations and answer any and all questions that you might have about starting a yoga practice. We will cover the following topics:

  • A brief history of yoga
  • An introduction to pranayama (breath control) and meditation
  • An explanation of different styles
  • An introduction to common yoga terms
  • A look at some yoga postures and their anatomical alignment

The entire workshop is designed to encourage dialogue, questions and discussion for any and all topics. If you have a question, we are sure that many other people do, so ask away for us all, teachers and students, to learn about the hesitations that arise. We want to provide you with the foundation of basic yoga principles in order for you to feel comfortable when you enter a yoga class for the first time. Join 500-hr Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher (E-RYT), Amy Reed, for this open forum for any yoga-skeptics.

We have all necessary equipment (props, mats, straps, even water), so bring just yourself. Because we will be doing some postures, please wear comfortable, loose clothing.

(Please note, it is NOT necessary to take this workshop to come to a Beginner’s Class, which we offer of Monday and Friday nights and Thursday mornings.)

*3 Classes to be used within 30 days of first class at the studio.

Come explore breath as the cornerstone of a yoga practice. Learn how the simple act of breathing can inform, and transform, alignment in the asanas, and discover how working with the breath is the most direct pathway to taming the mind to create an effective meditation practice. This workshop will draw upon the anatomical teachings of Leslie Kaminoff and Amy Mathews, authors of Yoga Anatomy, to describe the workings of the respiratory diaphragm and the surrounding musculature involved with deep, expansive breath. Yoga experience suggested. Especially valuable for yoga teachers. Read more and sign up here.
