Sivananda yoga focuses more on meditation, breathing, and spirituality and is one of the slower-paced styles of yoga. Chanting, meditation, and the same 12 basic poses or asanas and their variations are part of Sivananda, and this course will guide you through them all. You will learn how to adopt Sivananda's five branches of yoga philosophy which are relaxation and meditation, diet, positive thinking, exercise, and proper breathing. You will also learn how to start Sivananda with the Sun Salutation and end it in Savasana or Corpse pose.
