Mindful Movement (Marnie)
There will be a focus on awareness and ease instead of power and pace. Mindful movement is a blending of the science of kinesiology with the grace and wisdom of yoga. These practices will incorporate breath-work, somatics, and biomechanically deconstructed yoga asana performed awareness to develop presence of mind, steady the nervous system, relax the tissues and align the structure with the self. Modifications will be offered and the supports are encouraged. My personal mantra is that less is more. This is ultimately your practice and I would love to help you discover the benefits that this moving meditation can bring to you no matter what level, experience, age, or ability you bring to your mat.
Stretch & Restore (Gail)
A fusion of slow movement, yin-like stretching and restorative yoga, this class gives an opportunity to receive health benefits of yoga without intense effort, to reduce stress, and to help balance a busy and active lifestyle. A short talk, asana - postures are mostly seated or reclined and some use supportive props to facilitate deep relaxation. All levels welcome. Variations given to support your practice.
More Than Asana! Yoga (Gail)
There is even more to yoga than its incredible health benefits! These classes explore some deeper practices to cultivate and move prana (life force energy) through the body and mind. A short talk followed by practice, these classes are meant to help understand the yoga teachings and give you a direct experience to embody the wisdom that lies within. As yoga practitioners, we are dedicated to improving ourselves. Asana with flow and holds, pranayama, mantra, mudra and meditation and other yoga techniques. Good for those who have stability in their postures and are looking to enliven the energetic body and mind. All levels welcome. Variations given to support your practice.
Wednesday Wake-up Walk (Marnie)
A moving meditation not concerned with counting steps but making steps count! The practice will start with some centering and breath-work and a gentle warm up/body scan to check in with yourself. Instead of walking a loop, we will be walking a timed circuit paced to your stride and effort interspersed with specific gait and full body exercises, ending with a short walk to integrate and prepare for the rest of the day. A gentle waking practice to generate an increased awareness and connection of the body, mind and spirit to moving you into your Wednesday. Walking poles or a walking stick are optional and may be helpful for balance but this is not a pole walking class. Each participant will walk at their own pace so all levels are welcome and modifications are offered to those wanting adaptations for any reason. I hope to help you start your Wednesday off right, please join me at 7:30 am, dress appropriately and bring your water!
