Sonal Yoga

Beginner's Yoga

Beginner's yoga is a type of yoga that is designed for those who are new to yoga or who want to refresh their fundamental skills. These classes typically move at a slower pace than more advanced classes, and focus on teaching basic poses, breathing techniques, and alignment principles. Beginner's yoga is a great way to improve flexibility, strength, and balance, while also reducing stress and anxiety. It can also help improve overall body awareness and promote a sense of mindfulness and relaxation.

Students are encouraged to move mindfully and with awareness, in order to prevent injury and to deepen their practice. Having a solid foundation can benefit both novice and experienced practitioners. Starting with a few rounds of sun salutations, a sequence of asanas (poses) is practiced throughout the week.
