Yoga Basics - This class is for those who are brand new to a yoga practice, as well as those who have taken a few classes or want a refresher class. Students are immersed in the fundamentals of yoga. You will be instructed and supported in learning the process of safe alignment, breathing techniques and the use of yoga props. We will focus on building our practice from the ground up working on basic standing and seated poses, twists and simple backbends.
Open Yoga - Suitable for all levels of student from beginner to advanced practitioners. We will continue to work on basic poses but start to build on Sun Salutations, standing poses, twists, backbends and supported inversions. Sunday's class will wind down with relaxing restorative poses designed to reduce stress. (New beginners are welcome but students with movement limitations should begin with Yoga Basics or a private lesson.)
Just Yoga - This class will have a specific focus each week and is open to everyone. (New beginners are welcome but students with movement limitations should begin with Yoga Basics or a private lesson.)
Adaptive / Chair - During our lives and as we age, we all encounter physical limitations. But there is no need to limit all movement. Come practice a safe, fun and supported practice with or without chairs to create physical energy and mental calmness. This class is suitable for seniors of any age and for anyone working with physical limitation.
