7/8-7/22 - Only the first day will appear on the calendar.
Stepping onto a yoga mat can be intimidating, the weight of thousands of years of tradition and millions of dollars of marketing piled on, with the expectation that you'll "get it" (whatever "it" is!) in one class. The goal of this series is to break down barriers and demystify the practice of yoga, covering the basics with curiosity and lightheartedness.
Learn foundational principles of yoga including asana (postures) and pranayama (breathing exercises)
Understand the definition of yoga and some of it's meaning
Embrace a beginner's mind and enjoy learning about an ancient spiritual discipline
Discussion and lecture
Practical application of postures and breathing exercises
Alison first arrived on her mat 30 years ago, began teaching in 2014, and remains in awe of the healing power of this practice. She honors both the science and spirit of yoga, leads with curiosity, and endeavors to help students rediscover their personal agency and rhythm. Outside of class, you'll find Alison walking her talk and in the woods - usually with her people and funny pup in tow.
