In part one of this series, Andrea Marcum introduces vinyasa yoga to those who are brand new. In this practice, being only a first date, Andrea eases you in to get familiar with breathing, balancing, and bending. Andrea will guide you to actually embrace the awkward silence you’d usually try to avoid on a first date! If you don’t hear violin’s swell and feel euphoric love at first sight, fear not. Andrea wasn't exactly sure what to make of her first class either, but nearly eighteen years later it’s the love of her life!

I've practiced yoga on and off for a number of years and am trying to establish a regular practice again and was so excited to find gaia.com. Even though this video is listed as a first yoga practice, I think its great for anyone who has trouble getting going in the morning and needs a gentle practice to ease into their morning! I am SO not a morning person but I find my mood and energy much improved if I do a short gentle yoga practice first thing and this is a great one for mornings!

I couldn't agree more! I truly believe that "advanced" when it comes to yoga is not about how much we can do -- it's the integrity with which we do the simplest of things. Aligning your day with a nurturing practice is the wisdom of an established practitioner at its best. Thank you for practicing with me and for being part of our wonderful Gaia family! xx A

Though I have been a yogi for many years, some nights after a long day in a chair at work, I need a more simple, soothing flow that still provides an impact to my weary muscles. This was a combination of "just enough" for tonight, reminding of breath and only mobility the body allows at that moment, thank you. Beginners can embrace the all around serenity of voice, flow and suggestions, while others can relax into those asanas that brought us here long ago.

Thank you for this incredible insight and reminder to us all! As advanced yogis, we're looking to become uncluttered, fresh, new beginners again. You've said so here in the most wonderful way. Thank you for practicing with me! xx A
