Yoga 101

Are you new to yoga? Not sure where to start? Or are you thirsty for more foundational knowledge? If so, this Yoga 101 course is for you!

This three-week introduction to yoga course will introduce you to the fundamentals of Hatha yoga, the most widely practiced form of yoga in the United States.


Hatha yoga uses postures, breath awareness and relaxation techniques to produce a healthy physical body and a clear, peaceful mind. This series will help you to develop a safe understanding of basic yoga postures, their benefits and help you build confidence to move to the next level!

This class series for beginners and anyone wishing to deepen their practice will include:
  • Basic history of yoga
  • Overview of the various styles of yoga
  • Yoga studio etiquette
  • Discussions on Namaste and OM
  • Breath work
  • Step-back Sun Salutations
  • Standing and seated poses with an eye on proper alignment and modifications for each pose for all levels
  • Relaxation and meditation
  • Answers to any questions you have about yoga!

All you need to bring is yourself! We’ve got you covered with a mat (or bring your own).

Class meets for three consecutive weeks on the same day and time for 75 minutes.

Saturdays at 1:00pm – 1/6, 1/13 and 1/20

What past students say about the Yoga 101 series…

“You have made everyone feel comfortable and have answered questions that many people may not feel they could ask in the group. I have also benefited from your expertise in suggesting ways to alter poses and positions for those who couldn’t quite get to that level yet. Thank you for all of the information you have shared with us and your kind and helpful attitude.”
Cynthia H.

“The Intro to Yoga was everything I expected and more. Heather was very thorough and I feel like I got reassurance I was doing things right and learned a few things I needed to modify. She covered all the basic info and more. Thank you so much for your time and devotion to Yoga! Your passion shows!”
Carol C.

“I enjoyed your style and the calmness you carried with you, for me to feel comfortable and to be able to let my mind rest is what is important to me in yoga and you offered that environment for me.”
Angel A.

“I’ve always been interested in yoga for its mindfulness with breath and movement, but shied away from studios due to my own insecurities (BMI). When Aspire Yoga offered their very first Yoga for Beginners workshop, I jumped at the chance. I was not disappointed! Heather taught us background, breath, poses in a way that was newbie-friendly and confidence building (that alone is well worth the price!!). I would recommend this workshop for anyone remotely interested in yoga and not sure where to begin. It has definitely ignited something in me and I haven’t stopped since. Thank you, Heather and Aspire Yoga!!”
Dusty C.

“There is always some level of anxiety when going to a new class and studio and this class helped relieve that anxiety. I like that it was informal and easy to ask questions. Keep it up!”
Jessica F.

“I thoroughly enjoyed the course. I had only taken one yoga class ever prior and had been wanting to really get into it for my own peace of mind. I plan on signing up for more classes when I can. Looking forward to seeing you again soon.”
