Online Yoga Class

This unique online yoga class from Oregon State University is scaffolded by an introduction to and overview of the eight-limb philosophical and lifestyle approach to yoga that has influenced contemporary postural practice.

What sets this program apart from simple online videos is the interaction and direct feedback and suggestions you'll receive. All from the comfort of your home.

Online Yoga Class Overview

This ten-week expert-led yoga class focuses on:

  • essential yoga postures
  • breath
  • meditation
  • postural alignment technique

Master Basic Yoga Techniques with Expert Insight

  1. Practice the most commonly taught, basic yoga poses and increase your strength and flexibility from week one to week ten.
  2. Identify optimal postural alignment in basic poses and common misadaptations beginners make. You will also learn to implement modifications to minimize risk of injury.
  3. Learn the eight-limb path of yoga and reflect on its relevance to your own personal experience.
  4. Evaluate and apply the five threshold concepts of yoga practice.
  5. Cultivate the theoretical learning needed to formulate a basic, ongoing yoga practice that addresses personal needs and all eight limbs of yoga.

What is Yoga?

This is a vast and exciting question! This course is meant to offer you a conventional, contemporary education of postural yoga, while also inviting deeper thought and reflection about what the term "yoga" refers to.

This class is great for beginners, and no experience is needed. We start at the beginning and build our skills, strength, and flexibility from week to week.

Yoga Supplies You'll Need

For this course, you will need:

  • A yoga mat
  • Two standard size yoga blocks
  • A yoga strap or, alternatively, a firm blanket, belt or scarf
  • A sturdy kitchen chair or similar from around your home

If you are pregnant or have a health condition, please consult with your doctor before signing up for this course. Modifying the practices and postures is encouraged whenever needed. Some health conditions may require such significant modification to the practice that enrolling in this program may not prove fruitful or well-advised.
