Build Your Yoga Practice
Start Your 2019 With Some New Yoga Classes!
It’s easy to put self-care on the back burner during the holiday season when everyone else’s wants & needs are front & center. But, the better you take care of you, the better human you will be as you navigate the crazy weeks between Thanksgiving and New Year’s. The YMCA is offering two opportunities for you to practice excellent, and timely, self-care through yoga.
Foundation of Yoga: Heather Freeman will lead a 4-week class that will help you put philosophy into practice as you bring in the New Year and set your intentions for 2019. According to Heather, each class will involve a philosophical conversation, and an hour of yin/restorative postures to dive into your own practice to apply the principles addressed.
A Yin yoga class usually involves a series on passive floor poses that involve the lower body-hips, pelvis, inner thighs, & lower spine. The poses are held for up to 5 minutes, sometimes longer. This practice is another way for you to find your calm, reduce post-holiday stress and anxiety, improve flexibility, increase circulation and more.
Yoga For Athletes: Brittany Fay will teach a 6-week yoga series to support athletes of all kinds. This class will build strength, improve flexibility and provide you with poses and tools to stay healthy and injury free. Get ready to move your body, find your breath, have fun and relax!
Brittany has been practicing and sharing her love of yoga for over 15 years. In 2016, she took a leap and completed her 200-hour teacher training certificate in Power Vinyasa Yoga. She is also certified to teach Yin Yoga and Yoga Sculpt. Brittany's goal is to make yoga fun and accessible for people of all experience levels, abilities and body types and looks forward to helping you discover how yoga can support your own unique journey.
Remember the old adage that in an airplane emergency you have to put your own oxygen mask on before helping others to do the same? Think of this one hour a week as your holiday oxygen mask; put in your hour of restorative or Yin yoga, then gift your sense of calm & joy to others in 2019.
