(new beginner level class, 60 minutes)
We'll start from the very beginning in this "beginners only" class. We'll practice the basics of common poses, learn about safety, and explore some of the anatomy, history and language of yoga. Class will meet for four sessions, then members can choose which of our regular classes they'd like to explore. If you'd like to learn with others who are brand new to yoga, this class is for you. $45 for the entire four-session class.
Returning soon! Meditation for Beginners... (60 minute class)
Meditation is good for every aspect of our lives. It can help us slow down, be less stressed, be more focused, and deal with pain and anxiety in a more calm, positive way. It can help us understand ourselves - and other people - better, so that we become better able to solve our own problems. Meditation can help us be happier. Yes, really!
Our class focuses on beginning meditation techniques. We practice a few simple, easy stretches so we can be more comfortable. Then we use focused relaxation techniques, quiet breath, simple awareness exercises and discussion to help you find simple forms of meditation that work for you. No, you don't have to be a Zen master. No, you don't have to completely clear your mind (that's not humanly possible). Yes, you do have to practice at home . Come join us and begin your travels through the exploration of your own mind. It's an amazing journey.
