In Beginners Bliss, experience Yoga's many tools and its holistic influence on your health and healing. Picture yourself with other newcomers in a safe, small-group setting. You're moving, wiggling, and having fun.
Each of you is the joyful recipient of personalized attention and one-on-one instruction. A gentle exploration of body postures and breathing techniques begins to energize you. You even feel comfortable making mistakes and playing.
Walk away fully equipped with Yoga essentials and the confidence needed to practice Yoga in any setting.
If so, you are in for a treat. In Beginners Bliss you will get an introduction to standing, lying, and sitting poses and modifications for each. At the end of the class series, you will feel confident in your ability to do most of the poses taught in general group classes. Equally important, you will learn the essential practice of coordinating breath with movement for a mindful approach to practicing Yoga.
In Beginners Bliss you'll start with an introduction to breath awareness, one of the most powerful tools in Yoga. The ancient Yogis devised a system of breathing practices called prānāyāma, which translates in Sanskrit as ‘extension of life energy.’ Your breath simultaneously inﬂuences all layers of your body, mind, and emotions. Prānā, transported by breath, frees blocks in all layers. When this happens, your gifts begin to be revealed and your potential shines from within.
Not to worry, in Beginners Bliss we'll break it down step-by-step for simple and doable meditative practices. We'll also explore objects of meditation for connecting deeper with your Self including mantra recitation. Mantra introduces you to the powerful effects of Sanskrit sounds and vibrations produced by ancient mantras. We'll top it off with guided relaxation to help you learn to surrender to stillness and quiet within.
"I've tried yoga before but often found some studios a bit challenging for a newbie and tight-hamstringed person like myself. Sarah is very helpful, making sure to listen to your needs and finding a balance between comfort and challenge. The environment in her studio is quiet and calming, and I always leave feeling refreshed and energized."
