Class Descriptions and Times:
Gentle Beginner – 9:00-10:00 a.m.
This is an introductory class for those who have little to no experience with yoga or for experienced students who want a refresher. There will be explanations and demonstrations of basic, simple poses with an emphasis on foundation and proper alignment. You will learn how to use props (straps, blocks, blankets, bolsters) to modify the poses so that you have stability and ease in this practice. Gradually, the poses will be linked into a gentle, flowing sequence and will end with a short meditation period.
The best time to start yoga is NOW!
Intermediate – 10:30-11:30 a.m.
This is a multi-style (Iyengar, Ashtanga, and Viniyoga) hatha yoga class for those who have some experience in yoga. You will be guided through basic poses with new, more challenging poses added throughout the session. Props (straps, blocks, blankets, bolsters) will be available. Through a combination of postures, breath work, and meditation, you will learn to improve your strength, balance, and flexibility as well as to relax and center your body, mind, and spirit.
Not too fast, not too slow … the just-right-for-you yoga practice!
