Yoga is both a practice and state of being. As a practice it promises a strong body and a healthy spirit. As a state of being, yoga is vidya – awareness. People who practice yoga discover quickly the benefits of stress reduction, flexibility, strength and an increased sense of well-being in their lives.
Welcome to Fall 2017!
Yoga Sutras with Elizabeth and Extended Practice with Irene are back! Visit here to view the new monthly dates for these classes. Our Therapeutic Yoga Program has evolved – we now have three options to target specific needs for those looking to yoga for specialized care:
– Yoga For Whole Body Wellness with Irene (Thu 6:30 pm) – great for those looking to rehabilitate joints, strengthen, improve posture
– Gentle Restorative with Deborah (Mon 4:30 pm) – for those looking to reduce anxiety, stress and heal the body in a restful manner
– Yoga For Movement Challenges, Parkinson, M.S., Arthritis (Tu & Fri at 11:15 am) – use of chairs, walls and slow thoughtful movement can make yoga available to everyone (who can climb our stairs!)
