Description

Whether you've never tried yoga, went to one class or have been practicing for many years this class is an experience for everyone. Sofa yoga is a way to do yoga using your sofa for support in different poses. Your sofa provides a comfortable place for you to do your yoga practice. If you have any knee trouble this is a great way to have plenty of padding, as well as any other areas of your body that might need extra support. The sofa is like a prop in that it allows you to push against or pull to get a deeper stretch in a safe way.

The course contains:

one main practice on video broken into two segments

one shivasana video (You should have the most comfortable shivasana of your life!)

one hip opener video practice

This course is an opportunity to explore variations of common yoga poses and stretches in a unique explorative way. Have fun with it and try to do the best you can with the poses and your sofa since every one is different. Adjust and change any poses at your discretion. You can share your experience with the community- it's the best way to learn and explore what works!

Who is the target audience?
  • This yoga course is meant for people who would like a supported yoga practice that focuses on relaxation and stretching various muscles. No prior yoga knowledge is needed because basic poses will be practiced. This course is not for you if you're looking for an advanced yoga, or vinyasa style practice.
  • We can all benefit from relaxed supported practices but be sure to consult your healthcare provider before starting any practice.
