In this class, you will learn about Patanjali Yoga Sutras - the essential yoga book. Also, you'll learn about the yogic eight-step path proposed by Patanjali in his Yoga Sutras. During the asana practice, we will emphasize twisting poses. We are starting with easy twists and gradually building to the side Crow pose twist. Varvara will explain step by step how to perform a safe Headstand at the end of the practice—finishing this class with guided meditation and Shavasana pose. This class is excellent for those who have completed the yoga fundamentals course with Varvara.
