Week 1

Yoga

Level 1 30 mins

Namaste, beginner yogi. In this first class, you'll be introduced to the yoga mat, why you practice with bare feet and the importance of having a beginning and end to your practice. Learn basic postures that engage your hips, inner thighs and lower back. Cultivate steadiness, calm and greater body awareness as you move. Props Needed: A block.

Yoga

Level 1 30 mins

Build a solid foundation for your home practice by continuing to learn alignment cues for basic postures. Begin on your back in a supported pose, using your strap (or belt if you don't have a strap) to deeply engage your hamstrings. Use this muscle awareness to learn downward dog and several postures from the traditional sun salutation series. Props Needed: A strap.

Week 2

Yoga

Level 1 30 mins

Open your hip flexors and strengthen your pelvis with this sequence designed to help you take a stable seat. Using your blocks, learn variations of low and high lunges, warrior I and downward facing dog. Conclude with simple supine twists and allow the effects of your practice to soak in. Now that you're getting into the groove of your program, check in with how your body is feeling. Props Needed: Two blocks.

Yoga

Level 1 30 mins

Explore spinal twists with an emphasis on a long, neutral spine and even sides. Experience how your body works in creating different shapes as you practice simple backbends and twists that blend together beautifully in this sequence. Have a blanket or towel nearby to use for support in seated postures. And remember, save your big meal until after this class! Props Needed: A blanket.

Week 3

Yoga

Level 1 30 mins

Activate your core and delve deeper into backbends with today's sequence. Open the front of your shoulders and hips as you learn proper alignment of simple supine backbends, cobra pose and locust pose. Be ready to walk away feeling energized! Props Needed: A strap.

Yoga

Level 1 30 mins

Well done, you made it! Now bring all the elements you've learned from our first five classes into one complete, home practice. Get two blocks and your mat ready, as you continue to refine your alignment in familiar postures. Learn an important, yet subtle, breath technique and variations of some postures using the blocks. Be inspired to return to this program often, and observe your yoga practice blossom. Enjoy the journey. Props Needed: Two blocks.
