As part of an ongoing series of workshops, Yoga 414 will be an introduction to various aspects of the popular (and unpopular) yoga practice to help beginning and advanced students alike understand what to expect on their yoga mats in a public class setting. If walking into a yoga studio still seems intimidating to you, this will demystify the practice, the language, the poses, and the myths behind it.
This introductory session will take time to walk students through typical public classes, expectations, what props are and how they can be used, negotiating the space of the studio, other students, the language of yoga, and more. It will be treated as an open forum to come and meet other students, ask questions (big or small), and begin to build comfort around and on the yoga mat.
Please come prepared with any questions you've been dying to ask about yoga and what it is, wear comfortable clothes, and have an open mind. Please bring your yoga mat if you have one, and all students of all levels are invited to participate, join in the discussion, and learn.
