Yoga 101 with Kim Schaefer is the perfect way to begin learning yoga. The course covers foundational yoga postures, terminology and other concepts important to yoga practice such as breath. Kim is a great teacher who clearly demonstrates each posture and provides individual attention to each student to ensure proper form. The class review e-mails and handouts are great too because they help reinforce concepts learned in class and aid practice outside of class. After completing Yoga 101, I had the skills necessary to attend more advance yoga classes.

Kim's instruction was great. My fiancée loved it and now wants to step up her practice! Also, her follow-up emails were really helpful.
Kim is a great instructor. She knows her stuff and has a very gentle, personable, empathetic teaching style.
