AFAA Yoga Essentials I

$ 400.00

Yoga has been in existence for at least five thousand years and can bring to practitioners great increases in physical and spiritual health. Most poses are appropriate for a wide range of people. Some yoga poses, however, would appear to be contraindicated by modern exercise science. It is important to understand that not every pose is for every body. For example, a person with a history of neck or upper back issues should not attempt shoulder stand or plough pose.

The yogic concept of ahimsa , or non-violence, non-injury, and harmlessness is a vital and integral part of any yoga practice and must be communicated properly. It is the responsibility of the well-trained and experienced instructor
