About the Event

Yoga 101: Foundations of Yoga

Education | 2.5hrs

Curious about Yoga? Join Samantha Reynolds, resident Yoga teacher and practitioner, for an in-depth exploration of the foundations of Yoga. Yoga is often synonymous with cultivating flexibility through poses, but it goes beyond the physical. Yogic practices are a science and technology for turning inward, beyond body and mind. Yoga is for everyday living and it is a holistic approach to wellness. It encompasses different paths and practices that help in achieving self-realization or union with higher consciousness.

What We'll Cover:

  • What is Yoga + brief history
  • Why do you practice it?
  • Key words in Sanskrit, one of the languages of Yoga
  • How to practice
  • Importance of breath
  • Foundations of the most common poses in a modern class and how to modify/adapt to your body.
  • What is OM and why do we say it?
  • What does namaste actually mean?
  • Discussion on modern trends, styles and common misconceptions
  • Q & A
  • Recommended readings

Who is this Workshop for?

  • New to Yoga
  • Students and Instructors whoo need a refresh on the basics and an understanding of the why behind the practice
  • Curious about Yoga beyond postures
  • You always thought yoga was stretching.

Please bring a mat for the asana (poses) portion of class. If you don't have one, we can provide one for you. This workshop will be half discussion and half practical application related to common poses found in a studio class.

Workshop begins at 12:30pm on the open-air, covered terrace of the Schokman Education Center. Includes garden admission. $60 non-members/ $45 for NTBG members. Includes admission to the garden.



Located on Biscayne Bay in Coconut Grove, Florida, The Kampong contains a fascinating array of tropical fruit cultivars and flowering  trees. Named for the Malay or Javanese word for a village or cluster of houses, The Kampong is the former estate of Dr. David Fairchild, the famed botanical explorer who traveled throughout Southeast Asia and other tropical regions collecting exotic plants he introduced to the U.S.
