This class is for all levels from those who have never experienced a breathing(Pranayama) class to those who practice regularly. Each week we explore a different breathing technique combined with a Gentle Recuperative yoga class and followed by a guided meditation. The goal of the class is to relax and practice gentle means of enhancing health and well being.
Designed for those with physical limitation, whether from injury, surgery, illness or other challenges. This class allows the participants to use chairs and other props to make them more comfortable. The class concentrates on improving posture, motor skills, and body coordination while creating strength in weak muscle areas.
The Beginning Yoga Lesson Plans cover what I feel are the most essential yoga poses a beginner needs to know. We thoroughly cover each topic and find the adaptations that work the best for each individual.
This class for beginners who are seeking a more vigorous class. The class has segments that will comfortably challenge the participant and can be modified to any ability. Yoga poses start from basic concepts with an emphasis on proper techniques and options for increasing effort are offered for those who seek a greater workout.
For hardy beginners or more advanced students, this class focuses on creating the strength and techniques to master traditional yoga poses. The format uses more advanced sun salutes and ventures into backbends, crow pose and handstands as well as other challenging yoga poses. All are welcome and techniques can be modified to suit the less advanced student who wishes to grow into the program.
The focus of this class is to develop the muscle groups used in many yoga postures. Frequently muscle aches and strains or lack of advancement in yoga skills, may mean you are missing some important elements in your fitness training. This class teaches simple but effective routines to round out your yoga practice. Resistance techniques and various props will be used and provided in class, including free weights, resistance bands and physioballs. The intensity level of this class is mild to moderate and is open to all levels of students.
