Yoga's Three Basic Elements
These are the beautiful poses you think of when you hear the word yoga. There are nearly 200 different asanas, all focusing on balance, strength, breathing and intense concentration. Asanas range from the most simple postures (which is where you’ll begin), to the highly advanced.
This is the practice of deep, restorative breathing. There are several different pranayama techniques, and you will be encouraged to use the one that works for you. Deep breathing stimulates the flow of oxygen, while calming the body and mind.
A fundamental component of quieting the mind is meditation. Savasana often comes at the end of your class and involves getting into a super comfy position, relaxing your mind and experiencing peace, tranquility and stillness.
As your yoga practice deepens, you’ll be amazed at how strong and healthy you begin to feel. When you’re ready, we encourage you to take as many classes as you can.
Desire, Ask, Believe, Receive
At Yoganics, we embrace the maxim there’s no such thing as a silly question. That’s why we encourage you to ask us anything. Yoga is your journey, and we want it to be well-rounded, enlightening and fun!
Yoga is Not a Competition
Remember, everyone was a beginner at some point. Yoga is a personal practice, aimed at honoring your body, mind and natural surroundings. Not about beating others.
