Jane Mayer Gleason, a veteran yoga teacher and teacher trainer, offers a short course into the practice and understanding of yoga to reach all levels of interest and ability. The Intro to Yoga Workshop Series will be held at Kharma Life Center, 700 W. Campbell Ave., Suite 1, 8:30 a.m.-9:55 p.m. on Saturdays beginning Aug. 6.
With the yoga practice still finding its way into the mainstream, there remains a mystery and often a misunderstanding of what yoga is and is not. This introductory series addresses the specifics of all aspects of the practice while supporting students where they are in their abilities and understanding.
By meeting once a week for four weeks, students have a chance to learn the basics of philosophy, physical posture technique, proper breath control and ways to manage mental-emotional stress and disease. The workshop is geared for all levels of practitioners, whether the student is brand new to yoga or just wanting a greater insight into the practice as they progress.
The cost is $49. Students may pre-register online, by phone or in person at the studio. Pre-registration is required for this event. Visit www.kharmalife.com or call 602-795-9767.
