Autumn Yoga Classes 2022

MONDAY

Yoga for Men over 55

7  – 8:15 p.m. | September 12 - December 12

You’ve seen the pictures of women in pretzel poses, and you’ve thought, “No Yoga for me, thanks.”  But maybe for years, your wife or female friends have been telling you how much you’d benefit from Yoga.  This class is just for men over 55 who are new to Yoga. You’ll  gradually increase your flexibility as well as learn some breathing techniques that reduce stress. As the weeks progress, you might find that you’re less prone to injuries at work or at leisure, and that you recover faster from exertion.

FRIDAY

Yin Yoga: Power in Stillness

10:15 a.m.  – 11:45a.m. | September 16 - December 16

Are you on a fast train? Ready to get off and breathe?  In Yin Yoga, you will enter poses on the floor and stay a while, observing strong sensations, and breathing with awareness. The long-held, passive poses will help you become more flexible, with juicier joints and better functioning organs. You might become calmer, and better able to focus: a gift in our world of constant distraction. Yin Yoga is an excellent complement to other forms of Yoga. Come home to your body in a profound and satisfying way.

Previous Yoga Experience Required.
