The Inspiration

Behind the Creative Process

The Yoga Foundations program has been in our heart for years. We wanted to create a program that was the perfect place to start. There were a few things that were important to us in creating this program. Making it accessible to everyone through pose modifications and the use of props. Creating a plan that would work no matter how much time or space you have or what your current level of ability is. And since Yoga Foundations is for beginners, it was also important to show people who are new to yoga, both in front of and behind the camera, making for a fun and collaborative environment. These are a few things that make this program unique.
