Ten Essential Poses

60 Min


In this practice we work through ten essential poses (some poses will have two or more variations) for your level 1 practice to strengthen and open your thighs and hips. Through your practice of these poses and the actions that support them, you have an opportunity to cultivate your discernment, a necessary quality on the path of Yoga. To know what is wanted and needed in each situation on the mat is to gain skill taking action toward your highest aims off the mat. How much effort is enough? What direction is your effort best placed? How long is your effort required? What is discernment good for on and off the mat? These and other considerations are addressed in this 60-minute level 1 class.

Udaya Spotlight

Rudy often describes himself as “obsessed” with yoga and it is clearly evident in his teaching. Utilizing his experiences both on and off the mat, he inspires students to challenge their perceived boundaries while respecting their limitations. As he guides students within the class, he carefully breaks down each movement, finding myopic muscle and energetic actions to achieve the most.
