About This Course

Published 6/2015 English

Course Description

This course is designed to make it easy for you to start practicing Yoga on a regular basis, and get the physical and mental health benefits for which Yoga is widely known for.

In this course, Crystal Sens, who is a licensed Yoga instructor with 10 years of experience, takes you through a beginning Yoga class that you can follow along as you follow it in the course.

The other person in the course is Alex Genadinik who is an absolute Yoga beginner. If you are a beginner, you can watch what mistakes Alex makes, and see where Crystal corrects Alex. Chances are that if Alex makes some mistakes, you might make similar mistakes if you are also a beginner. And this is a good way to see what common mistakes there are so that you don't make them.

Yoga health benefits

The potential health benefits of yoga include:

  • Stress reduction. A number of studies have shown that yoga can help reduce stress and anxiety. It can also enhance your mood and overall sense of well-being.
  • Improved fitness. Practicing yoga can lead to improved balance, flexibility, range of motion and strength. And this means you're less likely to injure yourself in other physical endeavors or in your daily activities.
  • Management of chronic conditions. Yoga can help reduce risk factors for chronic diseases, such as heart disease and high blood pressure. Yoga might also help alleviate chronic conditions, such as depression, pain, anxiety and insomnia.

Instructor Biography

Crystal Sene, E-RYT 500 Yoga Instructor

E-RYT 500 Yoga Instructor, TRX, KBA Kettle Bell Athletics, NASM Trainer, Boxing and Kickboxing Coach. I have been a yoga instructor for over 10 years and expanded my educational background through new and exciting avenues of fitness. I invest time in expanding my education to stay on top of all industary standards and help develop a successful program for all clients. We develop smart and atainable goals through direct conversation to build your foundation and success with fitness.

I came to the practice of yoga to understand both the mental and physical challenges presented in the development of discipline. After a two year personal practice I chose to deepen my understanding enrolling in a RYT program at Golden Heart Yoga. It was during this program that I made the decision to utilize this experience and education and become a teacher. I learned the value of a humble approach, developing the skills to triage and navigate overwhelming situations. Non attachment to emotional vices and practical considerations, respect and objectivity. As a full time yoga instructor for numerous athletic departments I have logged over a 1,000 hours as well as advanced as a group trainer within my community. I have also built clientele I see on a regular basis and hope to advance your personal home practice. Namaste.
