Learn the fundamentals of yoga in a fun, non-competitive environment. Explore alignment-based poses (asanas), develop body/mind awareness and learn to link breath with movement. Find balance, strength, flexibility and relaxation. Instructors provide hands-on adjustments and offer modifications/variations.
– A “good” practice is defined as whatever one’s body and mind are capable of giving on a specific day. Respect and honor your body by not pushing past your limits of strength and flexibility. Stay present in the process and not obsessed with the outcome. Yoga practice is about letting go of competitiveness with others and yourself.
Physical assisting is part of many Mind & Body classes:
– Your instructor may move your body with their hands in order to help you to find the correct alignment. If you feel uncomfortable with being physically assisted in class, please let your instructor know.
