Learn the fundamentals of yoga, from proper breathing to optimum alignment. Held in a small class setting, our instructors will show you how to adapt a yoga practice to suit your individual needs. 

The word “vinyasa” refers to the union of breath and movement. It is the basis of the style of yoga that we practice in our gentle, flow, and power classes. In the Absolute Beginners series you’ll learn the fundamental asanas (postures) practiced in vinyasa classes as we break them down step-by-step and show how to link them with breath. We show you when and how to use yoga props.  We teach you how to support yourself safely in the poses and use modifications as needed.  We introduce you to pranayama (breath work) and yoga philosophies. You will leave this series with a working knowledge of vinyasa yoga that will enable you to step onto your mat with ease and confidence.

Series includes:

  • An adaptive curriculum that progressively leads students through an exploration of the fundamental postures
  • 30 days of unlimited classes to practice new skills 
  • $15 studio retail credit toward purchase of a yoga mat

“I am so happy that I discovered BAMBU Yoga in January 2015… my sister kept urging me to take the Absolute Beginner’s class. I was afraid and didn’t think I could do yoga. Not only can I do it, I discovered that I love it. I love the physical changes and awareness that it brings as well as the sense of calmness and self-acceptance. The atmosphere and instructors at BAMBU are a very large part of that. The studio is a very warm and welcoming space.” ~ Robin, Lawrenceville
