Yoga Foundations Series (Wed evening, 7:30-8:30, hosted by Samantha Buser, 200-RYT)
Whether you are new to yoga or have some experience, this series will help you along your journey to better health and mindfulness. You will learn how to use your breath to influence your mind and body as well as a deep body awareness with a special emphasis on alignment and strength. We will not only be practicing yoga poses. Each class will briefly introduce a concept such as breathing, intention, and balance so that you can lay a strong foundation for experiencing the deeper benefits of yoga as it has always been intended. All levels of fitness and experience are welcome!
Have you always wanted to try yoga but are not sure where to begin? Do you or someone you know feel too intimidated to jump right into a public (group) yoga class? Do you already practice yoga but wish you had a stronger foundation from the beginning?
Throughout the series you will experience: how your breath is linked to your movements, a deeper awareness of your body, and greater internal focus and concentration. We will practice basic asanas (poses) with an emphasis on correct alignment and modifications that are appropriate for your body. We will not be practicing any poses that will put excessive weight on any of your major joints. We want everyone regardless of physical ability to feel comfortable. If you have a specific limitation, please discuss with Samantha beforehand. Yoga is so much more than the physical poses. We will explore yoga as the holistic experience that it was always intended to be.
• Questions throughout the class are welcome, making this a more interactive experience than more traditional classes.
• We require a minimum of five participants, but are also capping the class so that each person can receive some individualized attention.
Samantha has been practicing yoga for the past 12 years. She is an RYT 200 level and a Certified Breast Cancer Yoga Instructor. Samantha's experience ranges from beginning/intermediate asana to restorative yoga. Whatever the population, Samantha believes that there are aspects of yoga that can help as a primary or alternative therapy for specific needs. Whether you are a stay at home mom or corporate entrepreneur, fitness challenged or a seasoned athlete, yoga can move people from any walk of life towards growth and healing.
