BEGINNERS YOGA:
YOGA CLASSES DESIGNED FOR BEGINNERS

Chair Yoga
Instructor: Melanie McRae

This Chair Yoga class is for anyone who wants to experience the benefits of yoga while having a chair for sitting or for support. In this class we begin with 5 minutes of centering meditation followed by about 35 minutes of gentle movement and stretching, then we close with 5 minutes of seated savasana.

We do about half of the poses from our chairs and then include some standing poses with your chair always available for modifications or support in the pose. If you are able and want to use the floor for poses, you're welcome to do so, but this is not expected or required for this class. Modifications to individual needs are always welcomed here! The primary focus in this class is to help you feel better in your body and to feel good about what you can do, even from a chair.

Class meets with Melanie on Mondays from 4pm-5pm. $20 drop-in $75/6 classes

YOGA CLASSES FOR ALL LEVELS:
Yoga for BEGINNERS to ADVANCED PRACTITIONERS


Afternoon Yoga Break
Instructor: Jinjer

This yoga class is fun and mindful. We use our muscles in ways that release tension: both through stretches and poses that build strength. We take each person's physical challenges into consideration and modify poses when necessary.

Each person has his or her unique strengths and weaknesses. We are all strong in some areas, weak in others; flexible in certain joints and stiff in others. We tend to judge ourselves by our weaknesses but yoga gives us an opportunity to celebrate our strength and flexibility. It also provides us with a chance to gently and lovingly strengthen our bodies (minds and spirits) where they are weak, and encourage them to flexibility where they are tight.

The last few minutes are devoted to meditation so our bodies can fully integrate the benefits of the class just past. We look forward to meeting you.

Class meets on Thursdays from 1:30pm-3:00pm. $20 drop-in.

Kundalini Yoga
Instructor: Ramdeep

Kundalini Yoga is an ancient yogic system kept a secret tradition of Raj Yoga in India until its code of secrecy was broken in the late 1960’s when Yogi Bhajan started teaching it publically in the West.

Kundalini Yoga is a remarkable system for keeping the entire body strong and balanced, particularly the nervous system and endocrine system, which become overtaxed in our constantly “tapped-in” society.

Its unique combination of physical asana, pranayam (breathing exercises), mantra and meditation are designed to work on specific body systems to help remove toxins, increase energy and vitality, relieve stress, anger, tension, emotional pain and support all aspects of the mind-body-spirit connection. Kundalini yoga also promotes a deep sense of inner-awareness and connection to help uncover the jewel that lies deep within each one of us.

"When you become calm and still, the universe starts moving for you." –Guru Dev Singh

Class meets on Thursdays from 7:15pm-8:45pm. $75/5 or $18 drop- in.
