CLASS DESCRIPTIONS

 

CHAIR YOGA

Chair yoga is suitable for students unable to participate in a traditional yoga class. Chair yoga offers a practical alternative, as it deepens flexibility and strengthens personal body awareness. Chair yoga has helped people with the symptoms of many health issues including: hypertension (high blood pressure), anxiety, chronic fatigue syndrome, arthritis, vertigo (medical), multiple sclerosis, Osteoporosis, Osteopenia, carpal tunnel syndrome, clinical depression, and chronic pain. Clients can learn many kinds of yoga postures, yoga breathing techniques, meditation, and ways of relaxation, with the aid of a chair.

SUBTLE SLOW FLOW YOGA

This introductory class is intended for those brand new to yoga or those who prefer a slower pace and additional instruction in the poses. Elements of a vinyasa practice are explained more thoroughly – with emphasis on proper breathing, alignment, and mindful movement. Priority is placed on the foundational postures, such as sun salutations, standing poses, and beginning backbends and balancing poses. Specific attention will be given to the alignment cues and actions of the poses to develop confidence and stability in the practice.
