Intro to Yoga w/ Loretta MILD
Every Tuesday from September 17th to October 22nd
3:45 PM - 5:00 PM
Are you looking for the right opportunity to bring yoga into your life? Do you keep making up excuses for why you haven’t taken the first step? No more excuses. Loretta Zedella is leading this 6-week series for those who wish to bring the life enhancing practice of yoga into their world.
A true introduction to yoga for those who have never done yoga before (or for whom it is a distant memory). This 6-week series includes fundamentals of breath awareness, proper and safe alignment in beginner yoga poses, and guidance through deep relaxation. Students learn proper technique for moving between poses as well as modifications to make all poses accessible, comfortable and safe.
This is a unique opportunity to learn the basic principles of yoga and build a foundation for your own yoga practice that will serve you for a lifetime. It is also an excellent opportunity for more experienced yogis to review the basics.
We'll also explore the use of common yoga props and how they can enhance our movement practice. We'll discover ways yoga can help us deal with tightness and tension from modern technology such as tight hips and shoulders.
To take this class, you must be able to get down to and up from the floor…it doesn’t have to be pretty and there are no other expectations, except a desire to learn. Don’t be afraid to try!
*Loretta Zedella has been teaching yoga for over 17 years. She is happy to be sharing these techniques now at YAM after teaching in Ohio at colleges, studios, and employee sites.
