This is an easy to follow beginner yoga class. Today we will set the intention to have being at ease in our bodies be more important that getting something done. We will allow ourselves to be deeply and totally absorbed in the sensation of what is happening in our bodies. We will let go of comparison and thinking about how other people see us. There is no rush here or struggle to achieve anything. The bottom line is you are feeling the yoga posture in your body, you are doing it.
Today’s yoga class is designed for the absolute beginner. You can do this class if you have never done a yoga class before in your life. I will give you slow, easy to follow, step-by-step instructions and tell you exactly how to get in and out of each and every pose. Detailed instructions will be given for even the most basic poses and how to breathe. You will be given lots of cues of how to pay attention to your body and where to feel the effects of the yoga poses. You do not have to be athletic, flexible, strong, balanced, skinny or coordinated to do this class. The slow, step-by-step instructions will give you the confidence to let go of your self-judgment and stay focused with commitment and motivation.
