Have you ever wanted to try yoga but don’t know where to start? One thing you almost never see is a class that’s fully intended to serve as a solid introduction to yoga.
Well, the good folks at The Synergy Studio are offering just such a class. The course will take place over four Sunday sessions beginning on Jan. 20 and continuing Jan. 27, Feb. 3 and 10. There’s no better way to start the year and give yourself (or someone you love) a gift that truly will keep on giving. The Introduction to Yoga class offers a solid foundation on which to build strength, balance and flexibility.
Taught by Synergy yoga instructors, the class aims to provide a comprehensive, hands-on approach to yoga instruction that includes Asana (poses), Pranyama (breath work) and foundational yoga philosophy. Participants will learn basic standing, forward folding, gentle twisting and back-bending postures. Through the movements, students will learn to strengthen and open the body while also calming the mind.
The Introduction to Yoga course takes place from 11 a.m. to 1:15 p.m. at The Synergy Studio, 300 Grayson St., No. 100, at the Pearl. Cost for the course is $99 and includes a textbook. For more information, visit www.thesynergystudio.com.
