This 4 week series is an excellent introduction to yoga, a good fit for those returning to yoga after a break, and useful for the intermediate student seeking to refine their fundamentals. Participants will find relaxation, ease and strength in the body, and leave the practice feeling empowered, informed and rejuvenated.
Welcoming to all, this gentle, slower paced practice will focus on foundational poses and making the poses work for your body. Cora will use language and instruction suitable for individuals who are completely new to yoga, but not tedious for those with some or more experience.
Come explore poses, use of props, alignment, modifications, and breath work in a supportive environment. Gain a deeper understanding of poses, explore ways to balance challenge and comfort in your practice, and learn to modify the practice to meet you where you are today.
Cora has experience working with all levels, all ages and enjoys teaching in a way that makes yoga work for all.
This course will be offered on Saturdays, 9:00-10:15am from February 11th through March 4th.
