Yoga for Beginners (15 Minutes)

with Mia Park

Style: Hatha Yoga

Duration: 15 min

Intensity: Low

Props: Blanket, Blocks, Chair

Class Description

If you're a beginning hatha yogi, start with the basics: breath awareness and pelvic floor engagement. This practice begins in a comfortable seated posture, using props as necessary. Notice the breath at the nostrils as you engage the pelvic floor, or root, and lengthen through the spine. Next, establish diaphragmatic breathing as you lie flat on the floor, focusing on the abdomen. Learn to combine the breath with movement, and when to engage the root, in various postures perfectly suited for beginning students. Conclude the practice by relaxing in shavasana to digest the work you've done today!

For this class you'll need: 2 yoga blocks, blankets, cushions, pillows, chair (optional).
