Yoga 101 : Back to Basics
Yoga these days can be confusing for experienced practitioners and newcomers alike. There's yin yoga, acro yoga, hot yoga, power yoga, hatha yoga, kundalini yoga, to name but a few. It can be intimidating not knowing where to start or what style is best for you.

* Be introduced to Patanjali's 8 Limbs of Yoga
* Understand the role of breath
* Discuss some of the popular yoga styles & what they offer you
