Yoga is about creating balance, strength, flexibility and relaxation in the body, spirit and mind. In addition to physical movement, yoga integrates breath work and meditation with the goals of relieving stress, increasing body awareness and improving self confidence.
Class structure is beginner friendly and designed to be accessible to all, regardless of ability. Options and variations in asanas (yoga poses) and the use of props are offered as support. Emphasis is placed on “how does my body feel?” rather than “how do I look?” in a pose.
This 75 minute class focuses on breath guided asanas that align, stretch and strengthen the body and cultivate mental calmness. Class emphasizes the value of increasing and/or maintaining overall functional mobility and strength by mindfully moving the body through standing and seated postures, twists, backbends, balancing poses and forward folds focused on overall muscle and body joint health. For a complete yoga practice, class ends with a guided Savasana – final resting pose – to quiet the mind and body so you leave feeling rested and restored.
Class will be every Tuesday beginning July 11. 5:15pm-6:45pm
