GROUP YOGA CLASSES

Yoga Acharya V.V.R. Ganesh offers a comprehensive program of courses in the ancient science of yoga and yoga therapy which is presented in a user-friendly fashion. Through careful, thorough and simple instruction, students learn how to master yoga positions (called "asanas" in Sanskrit); breathing techniques ("pranayama"); mental focusing; and relaxation methods.

The goal of these teachings is to provide students with practices that can be easily integrated into their lifestyles to create long-lasting positive change and overall mind-body-spirit health, wellbeing, relaxation and fitness. Through consistent use of these methods, the student's physical, mental, and emotional states become clearer and more peaceful.

BASIC LEVEL GROUP YOGA CLASSES are designed to introduce students to the techniques and theories of yoga in a user-friendly style and relaxed atmosphere. During these classes students learn the fundamental yoga asanas (postures), correct alignment, proper breathing to bring them a healthy, strong and relaxed body as well as a calm and peaceful mind. The theory of yoga is also discussed so that students may know what an overall dedicated practice will bring to them. These classes are for anyone who would like to explore yoga for the first time and also for those students who have already learned some yoga but would like to deepen their awareness of the techniques.

Topics Covered:
• Basic asanas (yogic postures)
• Introductory pranayama (breathing techniques)
• The "Sun Salutation" - considered to be a dynamic and one of the most important asanas
• Fundamental techniques of yoga: what yoga brings to the dedicated practitioner
• Explanation of yoga asanas for : strength, flexibility and balance



ADVANCED LEVEL GROUP YOGA CLASSES explore more challenging yoga asanas and techniques while also incorporating the fundamentals from the Basic Yoga Classes. Students who have already mastered some of the yoga methods from the Basic Yoga Classes will learn new postures to stretch their bodies and strengthen their health and wellbeing in a more expanded fashion. These classes are for anyone who would like to continue to explore yoga and deepen their awareness of the techniques.

Topics Covered:
• Advanced asanas (yogic postures)
• Advanced pranayama (breathing techniques)
• Advanced techniques of yoga: what yoga brings to the dedicated practitioner

PRIVATE YOGA INSTRUCTION & YOGA THERAPY CONSULTATIONS
for Achieving Increased Health &
for Addressing Specific Ailments/Stress


Yoga Acharya V.V.R. Ganesh also provides private yoga instruction and yoga therapy consultations for those practitioners who would like to address problems and challenges on a more individualized level. After speaking with the student extensively and assessing what areas he/she would like to improve, Yoga Acharya Ganesh designs a personalized and highly specialized program for the student in order to increase strength, flexibility, balance, and overall health and wellbeing.

These consultations offer students the unique opportunity to learn about their own particular physical, mental and emotional system, while exploring precise ways to increase their levels of fitness, health and relaxation based on expert advice from Yoga Acharya Ganesh. While a group yoga class offers practitioners an excellent atmosphere to explore yoga and hone their skills, private consultations and instruction give practitioners detailed and invaluable support that is tailor-made to their own body in order to produce the maximum positive effects of yoga and yoga therapy.
