Pulling back the curtain on Yoga poses

As the Binghamton area’s only Baptiste Affiliate Studio, Yoga Body Shop, is excited to celebrate our yogi community during International Day of Yoga. Friday, June 21, Yoga Body Shop is offering a free class at 4pm at our Johnson City studio. Check out the Facebook event for more details.

Declared an international holiday by the United Nations, International Day of Yoga, aims to raise awareness worldwide of the many benefits of practicing yoga. In the spirit of raising awareness, we thought we would share some yoga basics. For those of you that are considering a yoga class (like the free one on June 21st), but are a little overwhelmed by all the posing of the practice, read on.


Baptiste MythBusters

Recently we shared the basics of the Baptiste Methodology and what you can expect when you try your first class at Yoga Body Shop. If you missed that blog post, check it out. As you further explore Baptiste Yoga, we thought we would set a few “facts” straight with a session of Baptiste MythBusters.

Baptiste Myth #1: Baptiste Yoga is too hard and too fast for beginners.

In Baptiste Yoga, breathing is your guide. We do one breath per movement or hold poses for 5 breaths. It’s a breath-based practice, so you are truly moving at the pace of your own breath.
