In this course we will explore the classical yoga style of the Sivananda Lineage, a repetitious style that has five points of practice:  proper breathing, relaxation, exercise, diet and positive thinking meditation. Each session will include this traditional routine, to some degree, with a special focus on different aspects of the five points of practice, mobility and flexibility, balance, and emotional awareness. This course is open to all levels.
