CLASSES

I offer classes accessible to all levels. If you are new to yoga, I strongly suggest you commit to a Foundations series. In these classes, I teach you the basic postures, breathing & yoga principles so you may move on to any level or any style of yoga.

All my classes are series of 3-6 weeks in duration. A minimum of 7 students is required as well as registration and payment before the series begins. If you register for 2 series, your second, lower cost, session is 50% off!

I also offer special classes with a particular focus, such as: Restorative Yoga, Yoga and Wine, Yoga for the Back, 5 Tibetans Yoga, and Yoga for the Chakras.

GENTLE YOGA

This class incorporates movements designed to stretch and strengthen muscles and open and create space in the joints. Body alignment is emphasized in the postures, and breath work completes the practice by increasing circulation and decreasing stress. It works well for anyone desiring a slow, mindful practice.

This is a good class for beginners and seniors, as well as seasoned practitioners. You work at your own pace and level.

This class meets Mondays 3:30 - 4:35 PM at St. Elizabeth’s Episcopal Church, 2339 Grandin Road SW

$44 per month. $15 to drop in. See calendar for updates.

YIN YANG YOGA

This class blends the two energies of Yin-the cooler, more inwardly focused practice with the more active and warmer practice that characterizes Yang. The result? Your muscles and your joints receive the work for a total new you!

Yang practice is moving, working muscles and bones. Yin practice involves stillness, holding postures longer than usual to affect the joints and deep connective tissues. Most postures practiced in a Yin way are seated, on the belly or lying down, and many are forward folds, contrasted with standing postures practiced in a Yang way.

Not for beginners, please. It may be helpful if you have a foundation in yoga practice, or meditation or even the martial arts.

This class meets Mondays 5:45 - 7:00 PM at St. Elizabeth’s Episcopal Church at 2339 Grandin Road. This series alternates with Yoga Foundations.

YOGA FOR LIFE

Mixed Level. These classes utilize beginning concepts of yoga with more advanced concepts such as vinyasa or moving with breathing, ujayyi breathing and drishti or focusing on an object. This practice is more meditative in nature while honoring each student's own needs and abilities.

Yin Yoga concepts and practice help the student tap into inner wisdom while meditating in the postures. We may also practice mudras/hand positions or mantras/words to focus on.

We continue to explore and work on more challenging poses including inversions such as head stand. Focus on postures, breathing techniques and yoga philosophy encourages students to practice at home while incorporating yoga into his or her lifestyle. Working at your own pace and level is encouraged.

There are 2 different sessions of this class: one meets Thursdays 6:30 - 8:00 PM and the other meets Saturdays 8:30 - 9:45 AM at St. Elizabeth’s Episcopal Church, 2339 Grandin Road SW. See calendar for updates and fees.

YOGA FOUNDATIONS

This series is for the absolute beginner to yoga, as it introduces students to these concepts: noticing sensations in the body and proper alignment of the body, bringing awareness to the breath and stilling the “monkey mind”. Also offered are the alignment cues for how to practice the following groups of poses: standing, balancing, back bending, forward folding, twisting postures as well as inversions. This class incorporates the Kripalu Yoga concept of self- determination and encourages the student to ascertain what is best in her or his individual body. Stress reduction and relaxation are an integral part of each class.
