    Beginners yoga class Carrboro NCJanuary 2017 Beginners Series!

    Start 2017 off with an intense awakening of the body and mind! Yoga is a union of body and mind together, creating a Divine vehicle fit to be graced with the State of Yoga -- an intensely joyful experience that occurs through the understanding of a daily practice.

    Learn the ancient practice of Classical Yoga -- an 8 Limb journey into the soul, starting with relating to the external world, then to the body, through the breath and into the mind. 

    General: In this series of 6 classes over a 3 week period, you will get a basic understanding of the 8 limb path, basic alignment and understanding of warm-up and standing poses, breath work and an introduction to meditation. This series will ready any student for a journey into a regular practice of yoga at the Shala, or anywhere yoga is taught. The environment is nurturing, compassionate and all classes at the Shala are taught with a semi-private, personal feel.

    Schedule: Classes will begin on January 3 and will be held Tuesdays 5-6:15pm and Saturdays 12:30-1:45pm. Pre-registration and payment for the course must be made online or in the shala by December 30. Sorry, no late registrations accepted.
