Yoga Back to Basics – Part 2

Yoga Back to Basics

Course

Have you secretly been curious about what yoga can do for your body? We’ve got your back! In the course Yoga Back to Basics we’re going to talk about just that. The course is taught by our experienced yogateachers and is fully focused on the physical postures that we use during our yoga practices. The course aims to answer the questions: What can asana do for your body, how to modify them for your personal needs and what kind of variations do the selected postures have? By using an extra pair of eyes and keeping the group size relatively small there’s more time, space and knowledge to go deeper into the selected asana (physically and in terms of knowledge) than in a regular yogaclass. Feel free to come and satisfy your curiosity during this course and explore the world of asana together!
 
The Yoga Back to Basics part 2 focusses on a new series of postures. This course is a great addition to the Yoga Back to Basics course, but you are also welcome to join this course if you didn’t participate in the “part 1”.

Lisa van Driel

Around eight years ago I decided to try a yoga class, not knowing it would change my life. After a short time I noticed my body and my mind becoming healthier and it helped me tremendously through difficult times. I decided back then that I really want to share this gift of yoga. So that’s exactly what I did!
