Would you like to try yoga but don't know where to start? Yoga has the power to improve flexibility, core strength, and mental clarity. Yet many of us are hesitant to try yoga because it can seem intimidating. There's a misconception that you need to gnaw on wheat grass, sing "Kumbaya," and find time to memorize Sanskrit to be a yogi. But the truth is, you don't.
Yoga is a very personal discipline designed to help you release stress. You don't need to make a pilgrimage to a mountaintop to practice it; only a quiet, peaceful space free of distractions. And there are many methods from which to choose. This session described below is a starting point for beginners to learn how to stretch, stabilize and strengthen their bodies. For best results, perform this sequence three to five times a week.
Bend, stretch and flow your way to a better you.
