For 55+ or beginners, this is a very gentle class with poses modified as needed for each student (I have been a yoga teacher for 23 years and have completed special studies in Silver Age Yoga). Although yoga is done lying, sitting and standing, students are always welcome to do the yoga sitting in a chair. Everyone uses a variety of props to make the poses more accessible.
Classes are a mix of Kripalu, Iyengar and other interesting influences, like Feldenkrais movement, isometric release, immune system massage, Somatics, core strengthening, balancing, breathing exercises and more.
Classes start with a relaxing restorative pose — a few minutes to lie down, get centered, change gears. Then plenty of appropriate warm-ups and the yoga itself; all classes end with a lying-down, inch-by-inch relaxation.
Each yoga class has a different theme. Some focus on a particular body part like shoulders or lower back or hips; others focus on a theme like yoga for better posture, seasonal allergies, insomnia, etc.
All props provided; heated bamboo floor in this lovely studio; front door opens right into the studio.
