Going back to the basics is not only a great way for beginners to learn about the foundations of the physical yoga practice but is also an important tool to enhance the experienced yogi’s practice as well. In a Yoga FUNdamentals workshop, we spend the time discussing alignment and correcting postures on each other. There is space to play with poses and learn the key safety points for each family of postures including forward, back and side bending, twisting and inversions. Whether it’s the basics you are after or a chance to hone your skills to deepen your practice, this workshop is for you.
