Launch Your Yoga Journey: Enrich Your Life
For those who want to explore yoga, those fairly new to the practice, and those wanting to renew and expand their existing practice. In this comprehensive program, participants will gain a clear, practical, concise experience of yoga, on all levels, body, mind and spirit. Sometimes, there is confusion about what yoga is and what it is not – confusion about jargon, styles, systems, and “brands” of yoga. Some westernized versions focus on exercise and fitness, sometimes missing the essence of the practice. This program will focus on that essence. Students will leave with a positive experience, a strong, easy to follow base for embarking on their yogic journey, feeling rested, renewed, & empowered.
- The true meaning of yoga, as an awareness practice
