Yoga is an ancient system of self care that brings balance to the body, mind, and spirit. In this workshop, we will explore the fundamentals of yoga in a safe, supportive environment. This workshop is appropriate for both brand new students as well as those who would like a “refresher course” to deepen their practice. We will cover basic yogic breathing, yoga postures, and relaxation techniques, as well as discuss the many benefits of a regular yoga practice.
