This is a vinyasa based class for beginners, new practitioners, and experienced yogis interested in practicing basics.
In this class we will practice asana and pranayama (breathwork) as a means of connecting mind/heart/body and preparing for meditation. What to expect: simple breathwork and invocation, warm up movements and stretches, introduction of asana, surya namaskar, standing poses, counter asana and savasana, all leading up to approximately 10 minutes of meditation.
Rebecca Totman will be leading our session. She received her 200 hr Yoga Teacher Training in 2018, and is trained in Prana Vinyasa by Shiva Rea. She has benefited from both consistent yoga practice and therapy.
