2019 Yoga for Beginners Courses: 
Lynne Ann Paterson, ERYT-500, certified yoga instructor

Overview:
Learn the basics of a well-rounded yoga practice in this entry level course. Yoga for Beginners is perfect if you are: brand new to yoga, out of practice, or prefer a slowly paced class. Each course has a specific focus, so you can become familiar with each group of postures. Over the course of a year, you'll learn the most common poses and build a solid foundation to practice. When you're ready for more challenging poses, or a more athletic pace, you're welcome to attend our other yoga classes.
   

All Courses include:

     * Natural breathing and basic alignment in simple postures. 
     * Mindful movement to transition between poses. 
     * Simple alignment instructions to increase self-awareness of body, mind and breath. 
     * Use of props and modification of poses to accomodate your body and create more ease.
     * Deep relaxation in every restorative pose.

 

SUMMER: Yoga for Beginners
"Energize Your Spine, 
Open Your Heart" 

For this course, we'll take advantage of Summer heat and use it to energize the spine and open up our body-heart-breath connection. It's been said: "You're as young as your spine is supple." So very true!! A healthy spine is the key to overall health and wellbeing. We'll study proper alignment to protect the lower back and neck, as we mobilize all the joints of the spine. We'll practice basic backbends, counter poses, and complete each class with deep relaxation.

        Mondays in June and July
        Exact Dates TBA
        6-week course: $96/person

SPRING: Yoga for Beginners 
"The Art of Being Present - Standing Balance"

        
March 4 - May 20, 2019
        Mondays @ 6:00-7:15pm


For the Spring semester we will focus on standing poses and standing balance poses. In order to balance, we must become rooted, grounded, stable in the legs and strong in the core. Balance poses clear the mind and tone the whole body. Yoga helps us find center, serenity and resiliance in a world of constant change and flux.

 Registration is closed.
 Spring Semester: $180/person for 12 weeks.
 Note: We do have class on Monday holidays.
