Course Description

What you'll get:

This course includes a 30 minute yoga class to help you develop flexibility, core strength, and stress relief. Learn to focus and breathe in classical yoga poses that help you look at yoga in a new way. This class teaches you the key alignment techniques to be aware of for a safe practice, without distracting from the flow of the class.

You also get access to 4 short how-to videos focusing on the alignment of each pose to do back to back or when you have only a few minutes in your day. Those poses are:

  • Dancer
  • Tree
  • Warrior 1
  • Crocodile

Some of the poses this 30 minute video will cover are:

  • chair
  • boat
  • pigeon
  • cat-cow
  • twists
  • downward facing dog
  • plank
  • bridge

The 30 minute class starts with warm up poses, goes through sun salutations, a cool down and ends with shavasana (relaxation). It focuses on core strengthening, and exercising key muscles that are the source of discomfort. Ending with relaxation allows the body a few minutes to absorb the practice and let the mind settle to continue daily activities with ease and focus. It incorporates muscle strengthening poses for your core, back and legs.

Bonus Video:

This course also includes a short how-to video for a kids' yoga pose so you can do this with your kids, or just to add some fun play into your life.
