Class Description
With regular practice yoga brings a gradual activation of the body and you will notice improvements in your physical and mental health. The physical postures (asanas) taught in class work to maintain all systems of the body in good health; digestive, respiratory, circulatory, glandular, muscular, skeletal, excretory, reproductive, lymphatic, and nervous system. Wow! What other physical discipline can do that? And, it is available to All students. You don’t need to be flexible to do yoga. Come experience for yourself the benefits that a yoga practice will give you.

If you are interested in beginning a yoga practice, this is the place to start.  The Introductory class is taught from absolute scratch and is only offered 2 times a year.  There is no level of fitness, flexibility or experience required AT ALL. Age is also no barrier. The session is a progressive and systematic curriculum which sees you progress weekly and build on your understanding and skill, one class at a time. Even if you have a little experience or have practiced another style of yoga, you will benefit from attending the Introductory class.

For those who wish to begin or sustain a yoga practice at a slower pace. Ideal for those who need extra time getting into and out of poses. The class focuses on working with proper alignment, balance, increasing mobility, stamina and strength. Props will be used to facilitate balance, promote flexibility, and increase confidence. Sequences of poses will foster a greater sense of mental clarity and well-being.

This class is appropriate for students who have completed the Introductory course. Further refinement of the introductory poses will be taught and intermediate poses will be introduced when appropriate.

Chair Yoga
The class is ideal for students who are working from home and would like to take a break during the work day or for those students who are older and stiff and balance is an issue. All poses are taught with a chair for balance or performed seated.

Items required to participate in Zoom yoga classes;
1) a device that has internet access
2) yoga mat
3) a sturdy chair (a metal folding chair is ideal)
4) space in your home to practice

Additional props for stiff students and those developing a regular practice;
1) 2 yoga blocks

2) 3 yoga blankets

3) a yoga strap or a belt will do

All items can be found on line. I buy props from Sunshine Yoga and have always been happy with the quality and price.
