How does the Yoga Basics Course works
You'll receive a link to Notion (you will need to sign up for an account), that will contain your 7 video links and explain which props you may need.
The videos have both philosophy and physical practice. Each lesson will start with a short recap of what was covered the day before- because studies show that repetition helps us learn! We start small and build in steady steps, to set a strong foundation in Vinyasa Yoga Basics.
All videos can be downloaded for you to keep. If you live in a region where power outages are frequent, you'll be able to download them in advance.
Remember that yoga is a journey, one we have the rest of our lives to walk along.
The Yoga Basics Course is an opportunity to find which variation of poses and transitions feel best for you.
An opportunity to push through challenges and find ease in your yoga practice.
