Workshop and Benefit Classes

Ashtanga-Based Power Yoga Workshop, Beginners

Wednesday, June 1, No Limits Studio (B)
6:00 – 8:00pm

This workshop is designed for students who have never participated in power yoga classes before.  So don’t be shy, everyone will be in the same boat!  In fact, no prior yoga experience is required.  We will learn proper breathing techniques, foundational poses that make up the sun salutations, safe ways of moving and breathing, how to link one pose to the next, and helpful tips to slip into relaxation.

*Power yoga is a physically demanding practice; please check with your health care provider before attending if you have any concerns.

Ashtanga-Based Power Yoga (Beginners Welcome)

June 20, 27; July 18, 25; Aug. 8, 15
$55 for the Summer or $10 drop-in.

Ashtanga-Based Power Yoga is grounded in the traditional Ashtanga tradition.  This is a focused, 60-minute, short-form class designed to build strength and flexibility through vigorous movement and use of the ujjayi (victorious) breath. We will spend time working on individual poses, as well as cultivating the “flow,” linking movement to movement through the breath, which is one of the joys of vinyasa (moving and breathing at the same time on purpose). We will learn modifications that support us where we are weak and ones that challenge us where we are strong. This class is open to beginners, however, it is not recommended for those recovering from illness or injury. Please be prepared to work hard, as many of the sequences are physically demanding.

{Pre-registration is encouraged. Contact}

Yoga on the Lawn is a gentle, all-levels class in which we will cultivate mindfulness through movement and breath work. We will practice postures and mindful breathing to create space within the body for healing and to bring about an overall sense of well-being.
