Intention: teach new students and students new to the Vinyasa style the foundations of the practice including breath work, coordination of breath and movement and the different modifications and variations that allow students in a group setting to have a very personal experience.
What you will learn:
breath- yogic three part breath and use of Ujjayi pranayama- the traditional breath for Vinyasa flow
use of drishti and bandhas to support your practice
breakdown of Surya Namaskar or the Sun Salutation sequences
conscious placement of breath while in movement and finding flow within stillness
modifications for wrist, shoulder, low back pain and knee pain
