Sometimes, the jargon, styles, systems, and branding surrounding Yoga creates confusion about what Yoga is and isn’t. Many students seem to be learning a very westernized version of Yoga based around exercise or getting fit. Often of these classes are missing the essence of the practice. This program will capture that essence.
Students will leave with a positive feeling and a strong, easy-to-follow base for embarking on their Yogic journey. They’ll feeling rested, renewed, and empowered!
