Strong and Steady Yoga: Chair-to-Mat Class

Having a Strong and Steady Yoga practice builds strength, energy, and resilience. The focused movements fortify you as you spend time outdoors during the coming cooler weather and shortening days. 

Together we experience yoga as a grounding physical practice for standing strong and steady in the world. The theme for our weekly classes this fall will be an exploration of the major joints of the body: knees, hips, shoulders, neck, ankles, wrists, and of course, the spine.

The chair-to-mat class (Fridays 10-11:15 am) is great for anyone seeking safe stretches, release in the joints, and strength in the bones.

Each class is an intelligent, gentle, and joyful practice aligning movement and breath – a perfect lead-in for the weekend! Throughout, we build strength and steadiness through movement that:

  • tones the body and supports balance
  • frees up joints, breath and energy
  • releases stuck emotions and obsessive thoughts
  • opens the heart to engage courageously with the world around us!

This class is on-going and open for drop-in attendance! It is organized into multi-week sessions to reduce cost for regular participants. 

Session Dates and Time:  Friday, September 8th – Friday October 27th, 2017 (8 weeks), 10:00 – 11:15 am

Cost:   $125 for the 8-week session ($20 drop-in)

 Note:      Wear comfortable clothes and come with a water bottle, yoga mat and props (if you have them). Some mats, blocks and straps are on hand.
