Taught in English, this 3-hour program gives an expansive overview of the history and philosophical tenets of yoga through the millennia along with basic hatha yoga practices to give the beginning student a comprehensive introduction into the world of yoga.

On a theoretical level, the student is introduced to:

  • the four paths of yoga
  • what is hatha yoga
  • prana, chakras and kundalini
  • proper exercise
  • proper breathing
  • proper diet
  • proper relaxation
  • positive thinking & meditation

On a practical level, the student learns:

  • the mechanics of proper breathing
  • the rudiments of a cardiovascular practice called the sun salutation
  • some of the basic postures of the Sivananda system

While most of our weekly courses are open to complete beginners, this program provides context for beginners to relate their new physical practice to the deeper aspects of yoga.
