FTW 100 - Yoga Asana I


Credits: 1

This is a level I beginning yoga class that introduces basic seated, standing, twisting, prone, supine, and inverted postures. Short vinyasas, posture sequences, are practiced as well. Careful sequencing and repeated practice of the asanas build strength, enhance balance, and increase flexibility. Three pranayama, breath control, techniques are introduced to promote focus, relaxation, and stress relief. Both Sanskrit and English terminology are used and anecdotal information about yoga history and philosophy is included in the daily lesson. Each class begins with centering and breathing, transitions to movement, and ends with guided relaxation.
