What you’ll learn:

  • Why Ahimsa (non-harming) is the most important principle in Yoga

Yoga (Hatha Yoga/Asana practice) is recognized both by laypeople and professionals in the healing arts as promoting health and healing. But even something beneficial like Yoga practice can be harmful if practiced incorrectly.

In order to avoid potential injuries and at the same time, to maximize the potential to improve in the practice, we will explore the principles of safe practice, the obstacles you may face, and we will see how to apply these techniques in a one-hour asana practice.
