This is perfect for an absolute beginner, or for someone recently introduced to yoga looking for a proper introduction to the most common yoga postures and concepts.

Class 5 – focuses on Triangle Pose and Shoulder-Bridge Pose – a gentle back bend.
Class 6 – works on your core strength, introducing you to Chair Pose and Boat Pose.

When I started practising yoga it was with no background as to what it was all about and what was involved. My first introduction to yoga was in a class where my partner had invited me to. It was full of strange terms and even more strange exercises.
Initially I found it hard to understand as it was so foreign to what I had experienced until then. It took me several months to be comfortable with the postures. I wondered at the time whether there was a more effective way to learn about yoga.
When we started to get material together for www.liveyogalife.com one of the things I had on my to-do list was get several of Australia’s best yoga teachers to record their best beginners yoga program. This would be a series of classes that took an absolute beginners – with no experience of yoga at all – to being comfortable with attending a beginners level yoga class at their local yoga studio.
We were blessed with two such programs:
Both of these set of classes are perfect for anyone with no experience of yoga and a low level of fitness.
For Beginners who are fit – Check out Yuki Nakazawa’s Beginners Ashtanga Yoga Program (Classes 1 to 7). Not appropriate for absolute beginners – suitable if you have some fitness or have previous yoga experience. The perfect introduction to Ashtanga Yoga

Whether you are new to yoga or you are totally immersed in your practice, when you walk through the doors of Jivamukti Yoga School’s downtown centre (841 Broadway, New York) it is impossible not to get caught up in the spirit and love that is Jivamukti Yoga.
The place is alive with people getting ready for class, chatting amongst friends, chilling out over vegan cookies and chai in the cafe or getting lost in the boutique shop and library.
As co-founder of Jivamukti Yoga, Sharon Gannon says “if you want to uplift your own life then you need to uplift the lives of others”. It is obvious to me that this yoga center embodies this statement.
