In this class we keep it basic. You learn the fundamentals to build an authentic, strong and safe yoga practice. It is the alignment of the body in our asanas (poses) that keep us safe and allow us to achieve and enjoy the intended benefits of the pose. Without proper alignment there is risk of discomfort, frustration or even injury. It’s a slow and gentle moving class with detailed instruction on alignment as well as gentle hands-on assists.
I give you a wonderful way to learn or relearn some of the basic poses and allow you to really focus on what is happening with your body and breath. Starting with the basics allows you to build strength, flexibility and knowledge needed to move forward with your practice safely and organically. Nothing is more frustrating than taking a class and being completely unfamiliar with what’s going on. In addition to the alignment of the poses you learn basic yogic breathing and meditation techniques. But at the end of the day you have to listen to your body and explore what feels best for you. Every body and person is different, so I give you the basics and you can experience on your own.
There is a quote by the Dalai Lama that describes the motto for my yoga classes best: „Know the rules well, so you can break them effectively“.
