Yoga for Beginners Workshop Series with Beth Funk

You can save money by registering for the entire 4-part series or register for any of the classes individually. MSY will need four students registered for all 4 sessions in order to hold this workshop. Full package: $99; Individual Sessions $40.  Tax not included. 

Session 1 (Monday, September 12): Intro to the basics. Understand studio traditions, norms, and etiquette so you feel comfortable and confidant each time you step into a studio. Learn the basics of a Sun Salutation. Explore and understand the key alignment points and techniques for each pose in the series, and practice the breath work that will enable you to link postures together through fluid and dynamic movement.

Session 2 (Monday, September 19): Standing and Seated Postures (Part A): Become familiar with different standing and seated poses and literally build each pose from the ground up. Learn to use your breath, align your body, and stabilize and extend through postures that create space in your body and in your mind.

Session 3 (Monday, October 3): Standing and Seated Postures (Part B): Further explore different foundational postures (called asanas) as you learn to link breath to movement with more challenging postures than in Session 2.

Session 4 (Monday, October 10): Put everything you have learned together in this final session! With assistance and encouragement, refine your postures and your breath, and practice the basics of sitting in stillness as a tool to relieve stress, let go, and refresh and re-energize a tired mind and body.
