BREATHE EASY

A BEGINNER'S YOGA WORKSHOP

 

Beginning yoga can feel daunting as a new student, and often people believe that they have to be really flexible, or look a certain way in order to be successful at it. At Breathe, we support the idea that yoga really is for everybody and every body; that, 'if you can breathe, you can do yoga'. Allow us to take those first steps with you on your yoga journey, and on the path to a healthier, happier you.

 

This 5 week workshop introduces you pose by pose to the fundamentals of yoga, including basic breath (pranayama) and meditation (dhyana). Teaching proper alignment and modifications along the way, we build week by week, so that, upon completion, you will understand key terminology, have a comfortable familiarity with key postures, and feel strong and confident enough to attend any yoga class. Also serves as a great refresher course to those returning to yoga after a significant break.

"It was great! Thank you very much! I do realize that this is exactly what I need in my life. I know that I will slowly improve with time and practice."

"The beginning class was a great way to learn the poses in a comfortable environment."

 

"Feel much more confident in participating in future classes. Last class was the best. I found the first class mechanical."

 

"Very informative and relaxed environment. Thank you :)"

 

"The instructors were very friendly and helpful. It might be nice to add one or two classes at the end to work on poses and integration of poses in a typical class format to help boost the confidence of students."

About Your Instructor

COURTNEY

FITZPATRICK

 

RYT500

 

Yoga has been a genuine life saver for Courtney! She was introduced to yoga at 17; along with talk therapy and chiropractic care, yoga helped her heal from an eating disorder and jump-start the recovery process.

 

Yoga is the one true thread that's allowed Courtney to come back to herself over and over again. She does not take a one-size-fits-all approach within her teaching, and finds joy in sharing yoga with yogis of all sizes, abilities and backgrounds. She loves teaching all ages, but especially loves working privately with women who who wish to reclaim the connection to themselves.

 

Courtney has her Master's Degree in Arts Administration (formerly a fundraiser), RYT-200 with Jonny Kest in 2010, RYT-500 Yoga Therapy training with Saundarya O'Connell in 2015, Reiki I and II in 2004 with Ray Golden and Reiki III Master Level in 2017 with Frans Steine, Birth and Postpartum Doula training in 2016 with DONA and ProDoula, and is the owner of Verapose Yoga Studio in Dexter, MI since 2015. When she's away from the studio you can find her spending time with her family of 3 boys, their pound pup Tai and her husband, whom she met on an adventure in Colorado.
