That’s why Dana’s online yoga studio will keep things simple and include 13 yoga asana classes, where most of the moves will be performed from a seated position. These flows and tutorials will range from chair yoga and beginning standing postures to inversion and arm balance prep, restorative moves, and more.
“By incorporating everyday items like chairs and desks, the goal is to reach people who might be unfamiliar with, or intimidated by yoga,” says Falsetti, who also shared an exclusive clip of one of her videos with us. The five-minute video will walk you through a series of morning stretches that Dana says are helpful when it comes to setting your intention for the day.
Like the rest of her program, the stretches in the video are applicable to anyone regardless of their level of experience, shape, or body type. “The movements are simple,” says Falsetti. “More than anything it’s about body awareness and mindfulness as opposed to anything super physical. You’ll also hear me focus a lot on breathing in because I believe your breath helps enhance that mind-body connection. I think a lot of times people tend to forget how powerful that can be whether it’s used to help you focus, recenter, or make sure you’re positive as you get ready to tackle all the stresses that come with everyday life.” (Related: 8 Wake-Up-Your-Body Moves Anyone Can Do In the Morning)
