Yoga for Complete Beginners (15 min)
An introduction to yoga movements and using the breath
Yoga is an ancient system of wellness with transformational powers to connect you with your true self. In this 20-minute class with Carla, you'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!). You will link movements with the breath to start establishing the mind-body connection as you explore sensations within the poses. Step-by-step instructions will be provided. Created with the complete beginner in mind but all levels welcome.
No props or experience required.
