EAGLE-VAIL - Beginning Sunday, Revolution Power Yoga is offering a five-week yoga series titled Back to Basics, led by Rachel Nelson.
Revolution Power Yoga offers this brand new series to people who have never done yoga, as well as yogis who have been practicing for years, or take classes here and there. This series will delve deep into the alignment principles used at Revolution Power Yoga called "true north alignment." True north was designed by yoga teacher Baron Baptiste, and uses the elements earth, water, fire and air to break down each yoga posture. New yogis and accomplished practitioners alike will benefit from connecting on a very simple level to the foundation of the yoga practice.
"Refinement is the key to mastery," said Rachel Nelson, yoga teacher and co-owner of Revolution Power yoga. "When we bring awareness to the basic alignment of a pose, we are able to fully explore where we are, and from there we can expand into all the possibilities that await us in our bodies and in life."
Each week of the series will focus on a different element, starting from the ground and moving up. The series intends to make a flowing, yoga practice accessible to everyone by breaking the poses down using the elements and 17 simple alignment cues.
"I love true north alignment," said Revolution Power Yoga teacher Mariah Schuette. "It really makes yoga simple. By incorporating the same elements into each pose, I really feel connected to my body and feel like I can get the most out of my practice, no matter how flexible or tight I feel."
Each session will last an hour and a half and consist of discussion and a physical yoga practice.
"We are excited to offer this series for anyone who has been timid to try yoga because they are afraid they won't know how. If you are a beginner looking to try out yoga for the first time, this is the series for you," Nelson said. "
