FREE CLASS WEEK, JUNE 5-9, 2023...
... for both returning students & new friends.
You, regardless of age, body type, gender, race, whatever, YOU are welcome with us.
The most difficult part of being a beginner is talking yourself into going to your first class. Let us help you make that easier. All levels, including beginners, are welcome & we'd love to meet you!
Tuesday, June 6, 8:30-9:30am CDT on Zoom*
This class offers instruction for both traditional & chair-based forms of Gentle Yoga. Lying & sitting on the floor are presented as options but are not required. You'll be able to do everything seated in a chair & standing up, with plenty of options to make it accessible for beginner bodies. Please use the "CONTACT US" page on this website to have the Zoom class link sent to you by email, or contact us directly at [email protected].

Thursday, June 8, 4:45-5:45pm CDT on Zoom*
This Gentle Yoga class is more physical than our Tuesday class, including deeper stretches & holds of 12-30 seconds for the stimulation of bone growth. We'll be in positions lying/sitting on the floor, kneeling, & standing up. As with all Gentle Yoga, this class offers options to make poses accessible to a wide range of bodies. Beginners in generally good health are welcome, as well as advanced practitioners. Please use the "CONTACT US" page on this website to have the Zoom class link sent to you by email, or contact us directly through [email protected].

Friday, June 9, 8:30am-9:30am CDT in Blount Park*
Leafy, green trees above you. Bird song. A soft, morning breeze. Perfect. This is an all-levels class, available to everyone, with lots of options for accessibility. We'll be sitting, kneeling & standing. You'll need a yoga mat, water, perhaps a couple of towels if you'd like some padding, plus anything else for your comfort. We meet under the trees on the right side of the ASF parking area, so restrooms & parking are close by. Chair options will be available for anyone who chooses to bring a folding chair. New friends, please arrive 10 minutes early to get comfortable & sign your waiver. For more detailed directions, please contact us.
I'm very happy to answer questions, fill in more details, & help you decide which class is the right one for you. The only dumb question is the unasked one. ;-) Gentle Yoga isn't extreme or scary & we are a welcoming, small group. We'd love to meet YOU! Call & leave a message at 334-201-1530, email [email protected], or use the "Contact Us" page on this website.
