Morning Glory Yoga Studios is offering a new
Introduction to Yoga Foundation Course
beginning October 02, 2018
This is a wonderful opportunity to learn about the many health benefits of yoga while gaining a foundation upon which to build a practice.
The course is appropriate for those new to yoga as well as those who wish to refresh and refine their relationship with the practice.
Yoga builds strength and flexibility through physical postures while helping students understand individual stressors through techniques that include mindfulness, breath, and gaze. Through a regular yoga practice, awareness and quality of one’s physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health are improved.
Students will learn basic yoga postures, proper alignment, breath work, and be introduced to basic meditation techniques.
This class is suitable for students of various ages although it is geared towards adults; no children under the age of sixteen, please. The class is also suitable for people of various fitness levels. Poses will be modified to meet individual needs. Students should wear comfortable, moveable clothes and will remove their shoes during the class. A yoga mat is recommended but not required.
Gentle, Restorative, and Beginner classes are included (and encouraged) in the September Foundation Course.

The autumnal equinox, the transition between summer and fall, is a great time to start or deepen a meditation practice. Much like the trees begin to drop their leaves in the fall, this meditation will help you to let go of things that will not serve you in the coming season.
Place: MGY2 409 East Main
Cost: FREE (donations welcome)
**The meditation will follow an hour-long physical practice so if you’d like to stay after and participate please plan for an additional 30 minutes.
