This program is for yoga teachers and the experienced yoga student. This "beginner" class will bring us back to yoga basics, realign our practice with tradition, and provide new information for those growing their knowledge of yoga. Classes will be fast paced and contain an abundance of information to digest.
This is the first in a series of mentorship programs to be launched in 2019. All programs will be required to be taken in order. This program requires mandatory attendance to each class, assignment completion, class participation. (We are doing this old school- There are no certification or CEU's for this class. This class is for self-study and exploration of yoga.)
4 virtual classes held weekly and accessible from the comfort of your home. Each class will provide a lesson, opportunity for Q&A, and assignments to be completed in-between classes.
Each class is 1.5 hours and will be held Tuesday evenings 7-8:30pm EST. (Nov. 27, Dec. 4, Dec. 11, Dec. 18). A preliminary class to discuss the series will be held on Monday, 11/19 at 7pm.
Every week you will be provided with a link to log-in and join the group where a lesson will be provided on the following topics:
Session One: Back to Basics: What is Yoga from it's point of origin? We will look at how yoga came to be, traditional practice of yoga, how it differs from the West's interpretation of yoga, and the 8 limbs of yoga.
