This series will support students who are comfortable with the basics progress to a more intermediate level of practice. We will begin the course by covering the foundational movements that create strength, stamina, alignment, greater range of motion, and understanding in the yoga poses. One we have built a strong foundation, we will dive into practicing the full range of yoga postures. We will cover standing poses, seated poses, basic twists, forward bends, backbends and shoulder-stand will be introduced.  We will also add in core strengthening, stages of learning handstand, forearm balance, sun salutations, and backbends.  Each new posture is built in stages with step-by-step instructions and modifications offered so students are able to tune into their bodies and practice at their own level of comfort.
