Yoga Basics for Men
An introductory 4 week series with Mark Shifman
Sundays 8:30-9:30am October 27 – November 17
The goal of this series is that students would have enough experience and confidence to further their practice in group classes.
This class would concentrate on the 20 postures (asana) which form the foundation for beginner yoga practice. Four to six asana will be taught in each session with yoga terminology and foundational concepts.
The four basic breathing techniques will be taught, one per class. The relationship between breathing, the physical body and the mind will be discussed along with scientifically documented benefits of yoga.
Mark Shifman is a retired physician who has practiced yoga intermittently since 2002. In 2018 he began practicing yoga seriously. Mark is a 200 hour certified yoga teacher (June 2019) studying at the Kripalu Center for Yoga.
