Beginner Yoga

Are you curious about yoga but don’t know where to start?  Have you entertained yoga, but shut that thought down because you believe you are not flexible enough? Maybe you have wondered about all the yoga chatter, but then thought, “I’m not calm enough”.

I’ll take you just as you are. I am offering a TOTAL Beginner Yoga workshop that is welcoming and inclusive. You start where you are and that is definitely good enough. Yoga is all about cultivating acceptance. In this workshop I start from the very beginning. I go over what a yoga class looks like, talk about equipment (or props) and explain some general yoga etiquette so you feel comfortable. In a four-week series of classes you will explore basic beginner yoga poses (asana). You will learn how to adapt poses for your body type, how to properly breath (pranayama), and eventually how to link the two to create harmonious flow. I will touch on mediation, and in the end you will have the foundation to enter and enjoy a level 1 yoga class. 

September is all about new beginnings. Take a risk. Move a little out of your comfort zone and choose a healthy activity that will nourish you. There are many benefits to practicing.  I’m sure you have heard of most of them (if not, my new website lists them). Many people practice to simply feel a little bit better than when they started.

I create lots of space for questions, comments and observations. All you need is the spark of a curious and open mind, as well as clothing you can move in. 889 Yoga + Wellness rents mats and offers stunning space in which to practice. Beginnings are important as they set the tone for what will unfold. Do yourself the favour of setting yourself up well for what could be lifetime activity.

This is one of my favorite quotes by John Jerome: “The point of stretching isn’t to see (or show) how far you can reach, or even to reach as far as you can, but… to pay attention.” In yoga we don't judge, we don't compare and it is not a performance. We are simply interested in our own experience.

Intrigued? I hope to see you on the mat.

Namaste,
