A class suitable for regular students as well as beginners. I recommend this class for anyone getting back into Yoga or just getting back into shape.
We start with breathing exercises(Pranayama), slow calm deep breathing as well as letting go of our day. Then we move into poses that stretch and strengthen the body paying special attention to the abdomen. Coming to stand we then start to work a little harder doing standing and balancing poses followed by seated poses and then back bends, focus on slowly strengthening the back muscles as so many people have lower back issues. Finishing the class with stretching poses followed by Relaxation (Savasana).
A great class for all, you will leave feeling stretched and relaxed.
