This course sensitizes students to their own body and helps them to understand and address their physical strengths and weaknesses. The class introduces basic yoga asanas and breath practices. For people who are exploring yoga for the first time and want to increase strength and flexibility.
Western Lotus Athletics offers creative and intelligent yoga flows that combine breath and movement. Students are taught sequences that build strength, flexibility, mindfulness, and body awareness. Our classes are taught by highly trained teachers who share their own mix of poses, music and inspiration.
In this class we begin with light movement to warm up the body and then we explore and hold gentle postures for in between 1 and 5 minutes. This practice nurtures a greater range of mobility and invites the mind to focus inward. These classes are a perfect complement to the more active styles of yoga and can be a great primer for seated meditation.
