Whether you're a beginning student or an advanced yogi, exploring yoga fundamentals will improve your practice. Join Nikki Estrada for this comprehensive beginner's workshop where you'll learn basic alignment in classic postures, yoga pose "do's" and "don'ts," yogic breathing techniques, and much more. In this workshop, Nikki will guide you through three sequences that will help you work systematically toward six key asanas: warrior II, triangle pose, warrior I, pyramid pose, side angle pose, and wide-legged forward bend. She will also introduce posture basics for cobra, downward facing dog, and tree pose, and she'll break down common misalignments in pyramid and triangle. You will also get step-by-step instruction for half sun salutations, sun salute A, and sun salute B—as well as a yogic breathing tutorial, and savasana (final relaxation) tips. Explore what you learn on the mat. Visit these practices again and again—watch yourself improve over time, and most of all, have fun. And if you're a teacher, take what you learn into the classroom for all to enjoy.
