Beginner Yoga Class Series- The Benefits are Many
Have you ever thought of taking a yoga class but then felt overwhelmed by questions? Do I need a mat? What do I wear? What is a bolster? How do I use the strap? What was that pose, again? If you said yes to this then you might be the perfect candidate for a beginner yoga series. In these types of classes the studio usually keeps them small so each student can receive more individualized attention and the other students are beginners as well. Pretty soon you don’t feel so overwhelmed but instead you know it is a place of non-judgement and you become a part of the ever-growing yoga family!
Yoga Garden in Saint Cloud will be running a Beginner Yoga Series taught by certified teacher Christine Ashley M.Ed, starting on Sunday October 2nd 1:30-3:00 pm. Space is limited to ten people so that I am able to assist everyone with individualized instruction. It will run every Sunday at the same time for four weeks. Once you complete the series you can expect all those questions to be answered and then some! Here is the run down on what each class will cover:
First Class: October 2nd
