yoga essentials for beginners
Yoga Essentials for Beginners at Peace through Yoga is our four-week introductory program for those who are new to yoga.
Our program establishes the foundation for a lifelong yoga practice with emphasis on breath work, physical alignment, strength and flexibility. We will allow for plenty of time to explore the poses and receive personal assistance. Props will be used as needed to make each yoga pose work for your body.
Pre-registration is required due to limited enrollment. No walk-ins, please.
We have mats and yoga props you are welcome to use at no additional charge.
“Loving my Vinyasa 1 classes! I feel stronger, more limber, and my posture is getting better. My confidence is up is well. Thank you Peace through Yoga for being an awesome studio!”
“I have been feeling SO good and truly attribute a lot of that to the yoga I did throughout [my pregnancy] and continue to do at home now. I am so thankful for what my body has been able to do and I continue to be grateful for how good I’ve felt.”
“I cannot say it enough, I love Peace through Yoga! The small town feel, the love the teachers have, and the relaxed atmosphere no matter where the mat lies. AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!”
“Yoga has taught me to be more compassionate and forgiving of myself and others. I see changes in myself and am excited about what the future holds. Thank you for allowing me to find a yoga home at Peace through Yoga.”
“I thoroughly enjoyed the class yesterday and your studio is beautiful. I have learned over the past two years that I absolutely love yoga and realize at my age it is something I need to include in my weekly workouts.”
“My daughter told me about her experience at each of your three locations and invited me to attend a class with her in Danville. I have attended 5 Beginning Yoga for All Bodies classes at another studio in the past two months. Your class is what I have been looking for!”
“I haven’t practiced in years, the Gentle/Restorative class was just what I needed to get back on the mat. I feel better already.”
“Couldn’t be happier with my decision to start coming! I am only a week in, and it has been a game changer! Can’t wait to further my skills!”
“I feel stronger, more limber, and my posture is getting better. My confidence is up is well. Thank you Peace through Yoga for being an awesome studio!”
“I thoroughly enjoyed this class, the venue, the instructor and everything about it! I'm just beginning but I can see this becoming a permanent part of my life! The instructor was AMAZING! I cannot wait until next week! Thank you SO much!”
“The Danville space is easy to get to, comfortable and peaceful. I’m not athletic by nature and in no way what you’d expect for a regular yoga practitioner, but I’ve always felt welcomed and supported.”
“I am fairly new to yoga, so comfort was key for me in searching for a place. The energy in the room is always lovely and I feel right at home.”
“I felt so relaxed and at one with myself and the universe after doing Vinyasa I/II. As a beginner, the teacher did an amazing job making sure I was comfortable by using blankets and blocks for support and a strap to help me stretch out a little better.”
We will begin by laying the foundation with an introduction to yoga history and philosophy and breathing techniques. Our focus will be on standing and balancing poses.
This class introduces the concept of muscular engagement. We will learn seated and hip opening poses, as well as a new breathing technique. Class includes a review of standing and balancing poses.
Our focus will be on physical alignment for a safe practice of yoga poses. We will learn twisting poses and backbends and a new breathing technique, as well as review the previous week’s seated and hip-opening poses.
This week we put it all together! Our class will be a complete Beginning Yoga for All Bodies class so you can experience a “real” studio class. Additionally, we will discuss the resources available to you to expand your practice.
