Queer & Well: Yoga FUNdamentals with Tony Asaro from HAUM SF

  • Event by

Queer & Well is a free monthly SF LGBT Center program offering where LGBTQ+ folks can explore different forms of care rooted in connection.

Queer & Well is a free monthly Center Community Program offering that provides a communal space for LGBTQ+ folks to explore different forms of care rooted in connection to community. Whether it's caring for ourselves, each other, or communities we are a part of—connection nourishes our bodies, minds, and spirits. Every month, Queer & Well will host various events where folks can participate in and learn about various forms of care such as yoga, art therapy, and more.

We are so grateful for the vibrant conversations we have had with our beautiful community since we launched Queer & Well. One of the consistent requests has been a yoga class for beginners - and so we've created Yoga FUNdamentals (get it!?) - a class for those who are just starting their yoga journey, and for those seasoned yogis who want to revisit the core of this transformational practice.

Led by the incomparable Tony Asaro - the class will cover basic postures, some of the history of the practice and how you can use yoga in your everyday lives.

Initially, the course will run till December, and will be held on the last Tuesday of each month from 5.30p to 7p - we can't wait to see you in the space.

Tony Asaro first discovered yoga in 2008 when an injury necessitated a lifestyle change. What he found was so much more than physical fitness.

Tony believes that yoga should be welcoming and accessible to all people. He always keeps his classes fun and enjoyable. His vinyasa style is heavily influenced by Iyengar and calisthenics. His body is not the long, lithe physique you might see on the cover of Yoga Journal, and figuring out how the poses and transitions manifest in his anatomy heavily informs how he sequences. Tony focuses on building strength and releasing tension through alignment, lengthening, and breath. Also, he’s pretty funny, and makes great playlists for his classes.
