Postures

Yoga asanas, or poses, are the lifeblood of yogic tradition. It is through these poses that you activate various muscles and are able to bring about a meditative state. Some poses, such as the corpse pose and easy position, are designed for yogis of all skill sets -- including beginners.

Other asanas, such as the triangle pose, may require a bit more balance.

Your yoga instructor is always available to help you align your body in the correct position to meet each asana requested of you. Some of the most common asanas used in a yoga class include:

  • Bridge

  • Cobra

  • Corpse

  • Forward Bend

  • Half Shoulder stand

  • Head to Knee

  • "I am very grateful to Joy for bringing Yoga Reflections into my life. In two years of attending Beginner Yoga, just twice a week, I have experienced improved breathing, strength, flexibility and balance. My yoga practice has also been a factor in finally shedding some excess weight, which is hard to do when you reach the age of 70! Yoga has also helped to make the short, gray days of our Michigan winters more cheerful. Joy is a wonderful teacher and her studio is so peaceful and gorgeous! And, my fellow students are the nicest people."
