Yoga is a transformational practice of awareness that connects your body with your mind, and this helps you to truly appreciate each moment. To feel more centered, we must remember to breathe and live in the moment. Episode one teaches how to move in relation to our natural breath as a simple awareness technique, and how to align the general foundation of a pose to create overall steadiness and focus. The class builds to a basic balancing pose, Tree.
Yoga is the art and science of aligning the mind, body and spirit to live a richer and more authentic life. It promotes increased awareness, strength and flexibility while reducing stress and anxiety. Yoga may also decrease pain related to common problems such as lower back, hip or shoulder injuries. YOGA IN PRACTICE is led by master instructor Stacey Millner-Collins of Columbia, South Carolina, who first began the practice in 1994 as a way to unite a dedicated physical discipline with a spiritual one. The series is designed to teach the foundations of yoga to the at-home student, and to encourage a daily yoga practice that is more than simply physical exercise. Each episode focuses on a universal theme, such as "courage" or "the art of slowing down," and includes basic meditation and breathing techniques, further reducing the stress and anxiety associated with modern life.
