Yoga Asana: Basics – Therapeutic – Beginners
Introduction to the principles of alignment, balance, breath, and relaxation. For students of all levels including those with special considerations, pregnancy, injury, or illness.
Makaya brings in her years of experience as a chiropractic physician and yoga instructor when choosing a sequence of yoga postures that will be most beneficial to the students attending the class. Each sequence begins in a resting pose and unfolds from there. One has the choice of remaining in resting poses or participating in more active postures and movements, enhanced by supportive props. Adaptations are given for students with special considerations. The postures tend to be more stimulating and energizing in nature or more soothing and relaxing. Postures may enhance strength and stability or be more oriented toward stretching and mobilizing. Postures are done with awareness of breath, balance and alignment.
