About the Event
ALL ARE WELCOME TO THIS CLASS!
The perfect way to start your day! This 75 minute gentle yoga class features many floor based poses and stretches and a few standing poses for strength and balance. You’ll experience instruction, light movement, use of props and pose modifications along with a bit of guided meditation. If you have injuries or other conditions that require a modified practice, this class may be a valuable asset to your well being. Class begins with breath awareness exercises and a few moments of quiet reflection. Some gentle stretching opens the way to a practice of yoga poses to build strength, flexibility, and awareness. We aren’t worried about your clothes, wear what you feel comfortable moving around in. You can bring a yoga mat, a hand towel and water. I have yoga mats for sale if you forget or you do not have one.
You can be in any shape, whether that is body shape, or physical shape, even if it has been a while since you last exercised. Because athletic abilities may vary greatly, I constantly tailor poses to accommodate individual skill levels and flexibility. Those new to yoga should not be discouraged or intimidated just because they can’t do complicated acrobatic moves on their first try. It is about participating versus getting everything perfect. It is not about being able to touch your toes, it’s about getting in touch with your body in a different way. It is about letting your mind relax and calm down, and not think about anything else but what your body is doing for that time. We choose to surround ourselves with body positive people. In this space, we nurture friendships and put bodily anxieties to rest.
Yoga offers us a path to greater understanding and a deeper connection to ourselves and others. This path requires our patience, compassion, reflection, and connection. It all starts with serving each other in a way that inspires unity through inclusion. Unity is what yoga is all about. This class is for EVERY BODY, because Yoga is for Every Body. All ages, genders, colors, shapes and sizes accepted here!
