The Intro to Yoga Series is a great place to start your practice. At 8 Limbs we select our most senior and experienced instructors to provide what can be the introduction to a lifelong practice. Rest assured that your instructor will be welcoming, accommodating, and foster a non-competitive and safe atmosphere in class. These six-week sessions are designed for anyone new to hatha yoga or continuing students interested in reconnecting to the fundamentals of a physical yoga practice, including basic yoga postures and breathing practices.

This series will prepare students for the ongoing Level I classes offered at 8 Limbs. Some will be ready to move on after one session, others choose to repeat the Intro Series multiple times before moving on. We offer ongoing Intro Series options at each of our studios.

“I’ve been taking the intro series in Capitol Hill with Claudette and I’m in week four out of six. I am now more knowledgeable about my body. True instruction comes from a space that allows growth and everything about my experience here has been the most holistically fulfilling because I was taught to come from growth instead of perfection. As a person who lives too much in my head, I recommend this place as a means to learn to build a well-rounded balance. I am looking forward to a long practice in this venue and I’m grateful for what this studio catalyzed and then nurtured.”     – A.S., Intro Series Student
