Yoga for Stiff People (60 min class)

 

Yes this class is for you! No fancy yoga clothes required. Class is an hour long and we generally use two yoga blocks and a strap (although you can improvise). I try to offer many modifications during the practice so that you can adjust the class to your needs. This is not necessarily a gentle yoga practice, but we will focus on doing the same types of yoga poses each week so that you can get used to the practice and see results. We practice on the mat, on the knees (some people use extra padding for the knees) and some standing postures. We work on balance, some gentle strengthening poses and lots of stretching and deep breathing to get those stiff muscles relaxed! This class is for men and women and anyone who wants more movement in their lives. All are welcome!

Restorative Yoga (45 min class)

 

Restorative yoga class is a very gentle class (we don't even get off of the ground).  To get the most out of class, you will need a bolster (I suggest this one), two yoga blocks, a strap and a towel. Sound like too many items to collect just to do yoga?  I promise you, you will become addicted to your yoga props, BUT in the meantime, you can improvise (using two firm pillows in place of the bolster), a belt or scarf in place of the strap, and fold up two towels to replace the yoga blocks. Are you exhausted yet?  GREAT!  Time for restorative yoga.  Each restorative yoga posture is a supported stretch- for instance, we might start on the back with our legs over the bolster and our necks supported with a rolled up towel.  We stay in each pose for about 2-5 minutes, breathing and relaxing so that the body has time to soften and settle.  Some of the poses will feel like deeper stretches and others will simply feel like you are curling up with a pillow for a relaxing nap.  Guaranteed you will feel restored after this class!

Yoga Vinyasa (60 min class)

 

Yoga Vinyasa is a dynamic class incorporating traditional (and non-traditional) sun salutations as we flow through different yoga poses. There will be a period of warm up and cool down, some vigorous yoga in the middle, which will include down dog, warrior poses, chaturanga, up dog and down dog once again. I will, as always, offer modifications, and you are always welcome to take breaks or make the class as slow or as hard as you need it to be. The classes will be designed to challenge you a bit, so if you need the challenge that day, then please take it. If not, then please come to class and pick and choose what is right for you. I generally take requests at the beginning of each class, so if you want to work on backbends, heart openers, hips and hamstrings or core... please let me know. See you soon!

Gentle Yoga (45 min class)

 

Gentle yoga is a slow yoga class focused on stretching, strengthening and balancing. We generally start with some standing positions (at times using a chair for support). Then we sit in the chair and do some stretches from a seated position. Finally, we get on the floor for a few gentle movements. If you have trouble getting on the floor, we can work out a modified plan for you to stay in the chair or sit on a couch for the floor work. 

Rolling

 

Recently I have learned the magic of foam rolling (and rolling on a ball) as it helps to loosen the body's deep tissues and alleviate knots and chronic stiffness–even better than stretching. In fact, the best thing you can do is to combined a daily practice of foam or ball rolling with stretching and you will be amazed at how chronic pain and stiffness will start to melt away. It's tough at first, but as you get better at the rolling, you will start to become addicted to how good it makes you feel afterwards!

Private Yoga

Would you like some individual attention and guidance when it comes to building a yoga practice? To get the most out of your yoga practice, consider scheduling 1–3 private yoga sessions a week if it is in your budget. We can work on individual goals, take care of chronic pain and stiffness, create more body awareness, and work on strengthening and stretching areas that you feel need the most attention. Private yoga classes can also be arranged for businesses and groups of people who want to make their own yoga schedule and practice yoga together. Email me today to set something up or to talk about the options! I currently teach at retirement homes, schools, and can adjust my class to suit any and all levels.
