Saturdays 9:00-9:55am, Aug 27th - Sept 10th

Focus on building a strong foundation for your yoga practice with Tess in this three class series. Tess will dig deeper into the basics of yoga in a friendly and accessible manner; we’ll explore the details of several foundational poses and eventually expand to Surya Namaskars (Sun Salutations) and other variations. The goal of this series is to build clarity and confidence in key poses, understand how to safely transition from one pose to the next, and hone our body awareness.

Best advice a teacher ever gave you: “Even a 1º shift can take you to an entirely different destination.”
