CHOOSE YOUR PRACTICE TYPE
Yoga for Beginners offers three beginning yoga practices, each with beautiful video and clear instruction:
Vinyasa Yoga: a series of 3 beginner vinyasa yoga classes where you learn poses like downward facing dog, chaturanga, and how to flow between poses using your breath.
Hatha Yoga: a series of 3 beginner hatha yoga classes that teaches you foundational yoga poses, and moves slower than a vinyasa practice to allow for extra time in each pose to explore.
Restorative Yoga: the gentlest of our intros, a series of 3 beginner restorative practices done entirely on the floor so you can easily stretch your muscles, release tension, and relax.
In each intro series, you will learn breathing practices and yoga poses that will help you cultivate confidence on and off your mat!
