Fundamental Flow (60 min)
Linking foundational poses with the breath
This slow yoga flow focuses on foundational yoga poses, specifically the ones that were in our 21-Day Beginner Yoga Challenge. We will focus on consciously breathing while maintaining alignment to maximize benefits of the poses. We'll develop the foundation of a strong yoga practice and build strength, flexibility and confidence to take your practice to the next level (and your local studio if that's your goal!). This Fundamental Flow was created with the beginner in mind but is great for all levels. As always, honor your body and move at your own pace even if it is slower or faster than my cueing.
This is a Level 1 class.
