Kaufman Hall Studio 1000

In this beginning level Yoga course, we practice Āsana (physical postures), meditation and Pranayama (breathing techniques) that derive from Hatha and Vinyasa yoga traditions. While engaging the physical postures of yoga, we focus on alignment, strength, and flexibility; we also cultivate mindful attention and the capacity for deep presence. This course empowers students with the tools to initiate (or continue) a personal yoga & meditation practice, and grounds us in basic knowledge of yogic history and philosophy. Class is 85% Movement, 15% Lecture & Discussion.
