The gentle class is a therapeutic class. It is perfect for people with injuries, older students, larger body types and people suffering from fibromyalgia. Chairs are available for those who find it difficult to sit on the floor. EVERYONE is accomodated in this class. Saturdays at 9:35 and the first Wednesday of the month at 7:35pm.
BASICS: Classes are specifically for beginners, people who want a less rigorous class, have injuries or are elderly. This class includes gentle stretches and breathing as well as simple movements to systematically increase the range of motion in joints.
INTERMEDIATE: An intermediate yoga class focusing on more advanced pranayama (breath work), sun salutations, refining standing postures, twists, gentle back bending and preparation for inversions. The "theme" intermediate class on Mondays focuses on a specific posture or series of postures for that class. Call for the theme that week.
ADVANCED: Chant, invert, jump around...a challenging (yet "do-able") yoga class working on more advanced versions of the postures learned in Basics and Intermediate. Full inversions are explored and more advanced pranayama. Don't be afraid to try this class. There is no pressure to try anything in which your body (or mind) might not be comfortable.
ALL LEVELS: A class geared toward everyone. Advanced students won't be bored and beginning students won't run away in terror. Kinda like Baby Bear Yoga...just right!
WORKSHOPS: Designed to accommodate all levels of students. If you have any questions or concerns beforehand, call the studio and we'll be glad to help. Please vist our Workshops page for information about upcoming sessions.
