Open to All Levels
A practice suitable to all levels, incorporating some weight bearing on the hands (i.e. plank poses, upward facing dog, downward facing dog), as well as standing, seated, and reclined postures held about 5 breaths each with appropriate warm up and cool down before closing meditation, all with ample instruction. Poses will work on mobilization as well as stabilization, and instruction will be given on breathing throughout the practice.
This class will take place entirely from a chair, making it ideal for those who have injuries or conditions that prohibit bearing weight in the hands or the feet. We will focus on breathing, gentle stretching, and some mild strengthening. All you need is a chair (preferably one without arms) and a non-skid surface beneath. If you have a strap, tie, scarf, or belt as well, it would be helpful.
Ashtanga Inspired Yoga
A practice based off of the Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga tradition, which incorporates Sun Salutations (some weight bearing on the hands (i.e. plank poses, upward facing dog, downward facing dog)), fundamental standing poses, as well as a variation of seated and reclined postures each held about 5 breaths. Poses will work on mobilization as well as stabilization, and instruction will be given on breathing throughout the practice.
