Since this is a small group beginners’ yoga lesson it starts where you are, not wherever a room or beach or studio full of other yogis of varying experience and flexibility are. It’s longer (an hour and a half) than most other Indri Yoga classes so we have time to talk about your intention, your expectations, your reservations and your fitness before class and for tea afterwards.
You’ll learn how to breathe (no, I’m not kidding,) how your breath flows in Surya Namaskar [Sun Salutation,] ways to stay focused, maintain your balance and what to do on the days life sucks and your practice is a struggle. We’ll cover asanas [yoga postures] to open space in your hips and shoulders; strengthen your legs, arms, back and core. Most importantly, I’ll show you how to explore and experience the poses and the flow safely — where you should feel the stretch and where you shouldn’t and when to stop, hold and rest. And how to rest. And lastly, the importance of Savasana [Corpse Pose.]
