Yoga Basics has something to offer to both beginner and advanced yoga practitioner. Class is slower-paced and focuses on breaking down specific asanas, or postures, including foundational poses commonly seen in vinyasa and other classes. You’ll learn safe alignment through instruction, demonstration, and hands-on assistance. Beginner students will receive the building blocks to practice regularly and more advanced students will find this class useful in deepening their practice. Class includes practice of various styles of meditation and pranayama (breath work). Learn, play, and maybe even break a sweat in a supportive environment. You don’t need to be able to touch your toes; you just have to be willing to try.

Vinyasa and Yin styles of yoga will be creatively blended together throughout this 60 minute class. Vinyasa (flow) sequences will link movement with breath to develop strength, balance, flexibility and focus. Yin postures will be incorporated throughout the class to practice stillness in poses designed to target the deeper connective tissues of the body.
Laura began practicing yoga in 2015 as a way to relieve stress and add a new form of physical activity to her routine. She was hooked immediately and it wasn’t long before she sensed that yoga was going to be a transformative power in her life. She’s been truly amazed by the many benefits that yoga has provided in her life including a more positive self-image, self-compassion, confidence, physical and emotional strength, and an openness to embrace life. She felt a calling to share the gift of yoga with others and completed her 200-RYT training in 2018 with Kim Lomonoco at The Glowing Body in Knoxville, TN. She enjoys practicing and teaching power flow, Yin, and gentle yoga.
Some benefits of Restorative Yin yoga include:
• calms the mind
• regulates energy
• lowers stress/relaxation • greater stamina

• helps TMJ/migraines
• increases mobility, especially joints, connective tissue/flexibility
• aids in Yang practices (flow/vinyasa, etc)
• teaches you to listen to your body
