Beginners Yoga Series

Thinking about starting a yoga practice? Not sure where to begin?

I completely understand.

 

Years ago when I began my yoga journey, I had little understanding of the enormous benefits of the practice, and even less idea how to find a good, safe teacher to practice with. When I consider now what I wish I knew then, this program is exactly that!

Introducing the School of Gentle Yoga’s Beginners Yoga Series

Taught by Yoga Therapist, Teacher, and Trainer Dannette Mason, this new series begins January 19th.

What’s in Your Way?


For an aspiring practitioner of yoga, there can be many barriers to beginning a regular, committed practice.

1

Fear

Of pain or injury, of being out of place, of choosing the wrong class/teacher, of not doing it “right”

2

Perception

Beliefs that you are not flexible enough, not in good enough shape, don’t have good enough balance, or that yoga is only for young, healthy people

3

Accessibility

Cost, location, time, props

Do any of these limitations sound familiar?


I know when I first began a group, studio practice, I worried about most of these things; I was not healthy enough to keep up, my clothes were all wrong, my mat was not the right kind, the teacher corrected me too much or ignored me too much, I could not afford to continue, and on and on…

 

Ultimately, the thing that inspired me to continue to show up was not how I looked when I practiced, but how I felt.

 

Yoga is a practice of accumulation. The more you practice, the more you realize the vast benefits the practice has on all aspects of your life – health, wellbeing, relationships, mindset, and more.

 

This program is designed to give you the experience and comfort to enable you to feel confidence in choosing the best classes and practice for you.

Every body benefits from time spent in gentle practice
