GENTLE STRAP CLASS

Mondays: 1:00 - 2:00 p.m.

Tuesdays: 2:30 - 3:45 p.m., and Thursdays: 7:00 - 8:30 p.m.  

Open and calm the body and the mind during the long holds of restorative yoga, where the practitioner is supported by props, allowing the muscles to relax deeply.  This is an all levels class that will start with about 45 minutes of gentle asanas (yoga poses) that will include stretching and strengthening the spine, arms and legs.  The last 30 minutes or so will be devoted to restorative poses that promote relaxation of the nervous system. It is very restful and a great antidote to life’s stresses.  This class is perfect for people just starting a yoga practice, people who want the good feelings that yoga facilitates without a real vigorous workout, as well as people who may have injuries or conditions that make a more vigorous yoga class impossible.  The hope is that this gentle practice will foster a sense of connection and sovereignty of their body, assisting each student to optimally help and heal themselves, and can be sustained and enjoyed for a lifetime.
