A series is a set of classes to be attended consecutively on a
monthly basis. A series encourages commitment to practice, and
brings many benefits: trust between practitioners and teacher,
depth, focus and greater self-understanding. On a try-out basis,
drop-ins are available.
Gentle yoga series:
Introduces basic asana and breathing awareness. Restorative poses
are used for connecting us to our breath.
Gentle Movement series:
The intention here is to gain easier movement and alignment while
synchronizing to our breath. We do this by exploring our range
of motion with gentle yoga poses (with props as needed) and
Feldenkrais(tm) awareness through movement technique. Eurythmy
is also incorporated. Sessions allow for participants to bring
up specific issues to be addressed in our small group in a
spirit of collective support.
On Standing series:
We explore our foundational connection to the ground. Learn how
to align and move through your skeleton by sensing the forces
of gravity and rebound in your body. Learn how to support your
body from your bones, and how your muscles assist your skeleton
giving the internal organs the rest they deserve. Gain better
understanding on how to stand, move and rely more on the dynamic
interaction between your legs (feet, calves and thighs) and
your pelvic floor. Learn your way around the pelvis and creating
a stronger foundation and supple core, with benefits both on
and off the mat. Class work draws from hatha yoga, Feldenkrais
(tm), therapeutic and mindfulness training.
We investigate the subtleties of movement in our bodies through
a parallel application of Hatha Yoga and Feldenkrais(tm). Learn
how to refine the force of our constant companion - gravity
- by understanding how rebound can move through our skeleton.
Our time together offers both gentle and challenging insights
in the most delightful way. Prepared to be astonished by the
magic of your own ability in this study.
Yoga with Props series:
Ever wondered how to use props in your yoga practice? No matter
how strong or flexible you are or aren't in yoga, learn how
to use the mat, blocks, belts, bolsters, blankets, chairs,
sandbags more effectively. If you have never tried yoga with
props, what are you waiting for? Whether you enjoy an ongoing
practice or are new to yoga, informed use of props allows you
to deepen in your poses, and opens your potential to a greater
vitality through increased stamina and the ability to release.
Learn also the benefits of working with a rope wall, and to
feel the fundamental nature of the poses. Enjoy a deeper more
