with Stacy Swan
Do you know someone who is ready to discover yoga? This is a perfect class for new students to understand the benefits of this transformational practice. The Free Intro to Yoga Class is for students who have never taken a yoga class before or who are interested in learning about how we teach yoga at YGSF.
The benefits of yoga extend to physical, mental, and emotional health. Basic poses and breath work are introduced by an experienced instructor in a supportive community of other yoga-curious, Yoga Garden SF newbies.
We provide all the props you’ll need. Just bring your yoga mat or $2 to rent one. Wear comfortable clothing – a T-shirt and shorts or leggings are best.
