Create greater independence and life satisfaction within a safe and supportive community. Gentle Yoga is practiced at a slow pace to encourage healthy movement patterns, greater body awareness, and improved coordination and balance. Practices focus on mobility of the spine, stabilizing the core, and developing ease of movement in the joints with the intention of promoting balance, resiliency, and courage. With ample opportunity to strengthen your practice and progress at your own pace, this is not simply for beginners, instead it is a practice that grows with you.
All levels are welcome and no prior experience is needed. This practice is safe for those with limitations in mobility, strength, or balance due to injuries, aging, or simply being out of shape. Chairs, props, and cushions are optional to ensure a safe and confident experience.
While staying true to our style of gentle therapeutic yoga, this class will focus on nurturing, healing, and supportive practices that bring even greater balance to the mind and body. All levels are welcome. Please bring either two folded blankets or two supportive pillows to be used as props during your practice.
Accessible Yoga is an interactive and playful version of therapeutic yoga and therefore appropriate for a wide range of intellectual and physical abilities. Tapping into creativity and imagination, students are encouraged to participate in their own way and to develop their own version of what yoga feels like and looks like to them. Always keeping the practice light and fun, I believe we learn better when we’re laughing and smiling. It helps us connect to the heart dispelling fear, resentment, lack of self-worth, or feeling like happiness is out of reach. Through Accessible Yoga, we have learned that patience, repetition, compassion, and encouragement go a long way toward self-development and transformation. Together we create greater independence and life satisfaction with the practices of yoga.
Meditation is an essential component of yoga. Here we are offering a weekly guided meditation series as a means of calming the fluctuations of the mind and finding greater relaxation and ease in these turbulent times. A consistent practice is necessary to reap the benefits of meditation, so this class is offered on a monthly basis with the intention of building the practice together over time. No prior experience needed.
All classes are offered on a sliding scale. Suggested rates are as follows.
One class = $15
Two classes = $30
Three classes = $45
Four classes = $50
