Veterans Yoga

Saturdays, 11:30am – 12:30pm
Apr. 22; May 13, 20
The Butterfly House

Veterans Yoga in Richland County was founded by Dale Warren as a way to support veterans and their families.  Area teachers take turns leading free weekly classes for veterans, as well as their family members.  My classes (specific dates listed above) will focus on mindful breathing and moving, the relationship between the body and mind, and the ways in which a regular yoga practice can help relieve stress and uncover a sense of balance and ease in daily life, as well as in particularly stressful circumstances.  To find out more, please email questions to Dale at and keep in touch with veterans yoga via facebook.

Saturday Mornings, 7:00 – 8:15am

This 75 minute morning yoga class will explore postures and breathing techniques that cultivate ease and openness, strength and flexibility, awareness and contentment. Utilizing the principles of Ashtanga Yoga while following our body’s internal rhythms and wisdom, we will find support where we are weak and inspiration where we are strong.  Beginners & Beyond focuses on the fundamentals of power yoga, as well as explores modifications and variations on the traditional practice.  Come with an open mind and a big heart. All levels welcome!

*This class is open to beginners, and continuing 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.  Power yoga is a physically demanding practice; please check with your health care provider before attending if you have any concerns.

Restorative Yoga

6 week session,  Apr. 20 – May 25
The Butterfly House
$50 for the 6 week session, or $10 drop-in

Restorative Yoga is for all levels and all styles, especially those of us who are limited by a stress-filled mind, physical injury, illness, chronic arthritis, or joint replacements.  A gentle yoga practice will warm and relax the body and center the mind.  We will explore supportive and healing postures that promote well-being and restore a sense of balance.  Wear comfortable clothing.  All supportive props are available at the studio, and chairs will be available for those of us who will not be practicing seated postures on the floor.  Please contact your health care provider to discuss any of your concerns and your readiness to attend.

Ashtanga-Based Power Yoga

Mondays, 6:30 – 8:00pm
6 week session, Apr. 17 – May 22
No Limits Studio
$60 for the 6 week session, or $15 drop-in

Ashtanga-Based Power Yoga is grounded in the Asthanga Vinyasa Yoga tradition.  This is a 90 minutes 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.  Power yoga is a physically demanding practice; please check with your health care provider before attending if you have any concerns.
