Cindy Pelletier instructs the following:
Yoga for Beginners
This is where we begin. This class is offered to the novice yogi as well as those with more experience that want some fine tuning.
Emphasis is placed on developing safe posture alignment in foundational poses, strengthening the musculature of the body, and breathing in ways to support the mind and body. All of these help broaden your understanding of starting a yoga practice and guide you to enter a place of curiosity about your concept of your own limitations.
There are more hands on assists in this class. The only requirement is your open mind.
This practice is a bridge between gentle and vigorous yoga, and explores a variety of foundational poses (standing, seated, and on the floor) and breathing exercises. It provides a low-key workout and deep restoration.
