Gentle Yoga is right for you if you are: recovering from an injury; have a chronic special condition; out of shape; interested in learning tools to relax and settle your mind; or want to keep active, strong and flexible as you age but no longer want an athletic practice.
Introduction to Gentle Yoga is a 2 + hour workshop to prepare you for regular, drop-in Gentle Yoga classes in the company of other beginners. We will introduce the format of a typical Gentle class and learn about the props that are used during class. We will then explore a few poses and their variations (free standing, with props, with a chair) in order for you to learn how to get the most benefit for YOUR body. The class will end with a lovely, supported relaxation.
We will be moving in this class, so come dressed for yoga. There will be more theory, assessment and dialogue than a regular class, and therefore less of a well rounded yoga experience. If you need a loaner mat, please let us know when you register. All other props will be provided.
The fee for this class is $20. Attendees will receive a coupon for 20% off their first purchase of a pass or retail item from YogaGeauga. Attendance is limited. Pre-registration is required. Please visit our pay for classes online page or you can send an email to let us know you are coming and pay on the day of the class. Please plan to arrive 10 minutes early if you will be paying that day.
