Gentle Therapeutic Flow
Every Monday from 3 to 4 pm

This weekly practice is designed for people of all ages and levels of ability. The first 15 minutes of class is done seated in a chair or on the floor. We begin with pranayama (yogic breathing exercises)  to increase oxygenation of the body and as an opportunity to begin moving awareness towards inner space, or our internal environment. We then do a series of movements first seated on the floor or in a chair. We progress through various classical yoga asanas done in standing, kneeling or reclined (either prone or supine) positions. For written and illustrated instructions on the therapeutic application of classical yoga, please see click on the PDF icon below.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The following is the description of yoga asana from the Classical Yoga Tradition:

ASANA is the refinement of the body.

Asana must have the dual qualities of alertness and relaxation.

These qualities can be achieved by recognizing and observing

the reactions of the body and the breath

to the various postures that comprise asana practice.
Once known, these reactions can be controlled step-by-step.
When these principles are correctly followed,

asana practice will help a person endure and even minimize

the external influences on the body

such as age, climate, diet and work.

Strength and Mobility Flow
Every Wednesday morning from 8:00 to 9:00






 

This weekly practice is designed for people who are physically active and able to transition through intermediate level yoga flows such as moon and sun salutations. This is a full spectrum practice that provides verbal ques for fine tuning awareness of both form and function. The foundation of this  practice is the idea that if we place our skeleton into a position of best anatomical positioning, the muscles, tendons and ligaments hold stability (sthira) while breath and awareness discover deepening levels of comfort and spaciousness (sukha).
