About the Series

This plan will give you the gift of Yoga, and help you feel good in your body. Yoga allows you to tap into your inner self, seek clarity and develop a deeper connection to the world around you by combining movement, focus and breath. It is a way to unite your mental, physical and spiritual sides all while bringing fitness into your life. By the end of this series you will have a solid foundation in basic movements so that you feel comfortable, confident and at ease when joining a Yoga class or beginning your own at-home practice.

This month-long series consists of 12 workouts that repeat over a 30-day period. In this time we will cover a wide variety of standard yoga poses found in most entry Vinyasa or Ashtanga classes such as Sun Salutations, Downward Dog and Warrior. We will also open up your body with backbending stretches, help you feel comfortable upside down with some inversion variations, and work your core with strengthening exercises.
