Lauren, Emily and Jessica Parsons are sisters who have grown up with yoga as a way of life. Their parents, Jim and Sue Anne, have been teaching yoga for over 20 years and have taught their kids that yoga is a non-competitive, fun way to stay in shape, and a way for the family to share quality time together. The girls have attended hundreds of yoga classes and have even completed a yoga teachers training. Their message is that yoga is for all ages and all levels of flexibility. The girls are at different levels and demonstrate modifications and the use of blocks, blankets, and straps. The introduction addresses the fact that yoga doesn't come easy and the three talk about how some of the yoga postures are very challenging and take a lot of practice. Lauren teaches the opening meditation and yoga poses starting with diaphragmatic breathing. She then introduces a series of floor postures to warm up. The class then flows into standing postures where Emily and Lauren take turns teaching. Jessica, (Emily's twin) demonstrates all the postures, and teaches the poses as well. The class then comes to completion with Emily teaching an assortment of seated postures and ends with a guided relaxation.
