About the event
Begin your yoga practice or deepen your understanding of the fundamentals with Yoga for Absolute Beginners hosted by one of our long -standing teachers, Emily Dixon.
In this workshop, Emily will demystify essential yoga postures, terminology, and concepts so that you can participate in classes safely, confidently, and with a better understanding of yoga's roots. Yoga is first, a self-inquiry and spiritual practice. We begin with a discussion about the Eight Limbs of Yoga to provide context and purpose for our modern day yoga practice. We will then learn breathwork techniques to incorporate during your mat practice or throughout your daily life.
The remainder of our time together will be spent on a beginner vinyasa flow sequence powered by the breath. Students will receive detailed instruction on the alignment of commonly offered postures (such as Warrior 1, 2 and 3, high crescent, and downward dog). Particular emphasis will be placed on Surya Namaskar or Sun Salutation "A". Emily will break down multiple ways to safely and correctly execute a chaturanga. Students will also learn the symbolism of the sound of "Om" or the sound "AUM", a chant often used at the beginning and/or end of practice, the meaning of commonly used Sanskrit terms as well as the purpose and importance of Savāsana at the end of each practice. Class will close with a guided meditation for resonance and inward listening.
Come to this workshop with open minds and hearts, in comfortable clothes you can move in. Please bring a yoga mat, water in a closed container and perhaps a journal to take notes in or to write down anything that comes up for you, as you acknowledge the roots of Yoga and how they apply to you.
