Foundations Workshop

@ Logansport Studio  

Are you interested in taking time to break down the yoga postures and learn the details and benefits?
In foundations of yoga, we slow down the class and through repetitive movement and workshop style teaching, give you detailed information on the yoga postures, how they build on one another, and how the breath weaves into the class to create a balanced, effective class that leaves you feeling better than you did when you came in.
This 4 week series is for students new to the yoga practice, and for anyone wanting to slow down and focus on the basics.
The series is $55 and includes a 4 class pass to try additional classes during the series.


The series will start at a gentle pace as students are thoroughly introduced to basic yoga postures, or asanas. This class will focus on breath and body awareness, which are two very important aspects of yoga. Teachers will introduce various breathing techniques which are used in yoga to reach various healing goals and enhance the benefits of the practice. Students will learn the importance of connecting the breath with body movement as they are guided through each posture.


Class two will introduce several new standing postures while continuing to build off the same sequence students learned in the previous class. Students will gain further knowledge of proper alignment and benefits of standing postures including Mountain Pose (Tadasana), Warrior 1, and Warrior 2. Standing poses build strength and aid in quieting the chatter of the mind. They also build confidence and a feeling of being grounded and stable. Expect to leave this class with a feeling of complete stability, in your body, mind, and life.


Keeping consistent with the sequence introduced in weeks 1 and 2, the instructor will provide you with detailed alignment cues as you enter and exit balance poses in a safe and steady manner. Balancing poses act to create balance or reflect the current state of balance in both mental and physical bodies.


After completing the first three classes, you will be able to recognize how much you have learned as you flow through the sequence practiced in the previous three weeks. Level four classes are designed to provide review and practice the sequence at a slightly faster pace. The yogic principles will be tied together, resulting in a thorough understanding of the basics of a yoga practice. Lastly, your instructor will provide you with information on the other classes and instructors at Bodyworks. The instructor will also be available to answer any individual questions you may have as to what classes or instructors would be a perfect fit for you!
