This package contains classes from a 4 part “Yoga for Beginners” workshop with Ginny Clarke, which breaks down three important aspects of yoga – The body, the breath and the mind. As a bonus, you also receive a class about a pose we do in nearly every class, our beloved Downward Facing Dog pose.
Once we receive your order, we will send you a link where you can download these classes to keep for good or we can send you a USB.
|Beginners Yoga Series Part 1 – Body Alignment||BEGINNERS YOGA: An introduction for complete beginners to yoga where we review the foundational poses with awareness on our physical body and alignment.|
