Mat-based gentle yoga class (8:30 – 9:45 am)
A slow, yet deeply energizing and joyful practice that aligns movement and breath, perfect lead-in for the weekend.
Chair-to-mat gentle yoga class (10:00 – 11:15 am)
Great for anyone with health concerns seeking safe stretches, release in the joints and strength in the bones.
Practicing yoga in the fall is a true gift: we reap the physical benefits of more active times spent outside over the summer months. The gradual freshening of the air and lowering temperatures invite us to renew commitments, and turn gently inward and toward each other.
This fall, I would like to invite you to deepen your experience of yoga as sanctuary to put the challenging (more accurately stated: distressing) social dialogue around us into perspective. Yoga, with its focus on movement and breath, truly helps tune into what matters and tune out what is not serving our well-being.
Starting the first week of September, we will continue with our gentle yoga classes to build strength and steadiness through alignment. Physical alignment:
- tones the body
- frees up joints, breath and energy
- creates passages to release stuck emotions and obsessive thoughts
- brings more clarity to the mind
Best of all, a strong and steady body helps open the heart to engage courageously with family, neighbors, and the greater community around us!
What to bring: Please come with your own mat and water bottle. Chairs and lots of extra goodies to support you are available at the studio.
