Yoga with Jennie
Join Jennie for an all levels yoga class with an emphasis on gentle stability and strengthening. This call will include breath work (pranayama), yoga postures (asana) and at the end some relaxation and reflection (meditation) in order to create a feeling of well-being. If you have some big solid books, think encyclopedia size, a towel for under the knees or neck, or maybe a pillow or two, any of these things will be helpful for the practice but don't worry if you don't have them. No experience necessary.
Yoga with Rebecca
Expect an energizing class to start your day and get your energy flowing. We will begin with movements on the floor to sense into our bodies and rev up like a diesel engine; then move to standing postures; working on strength and balance. We will finish back on the floor exploring opening space as the result of our strength work.
The class will have some challenges, however everything has a variation accessible to all bodies. No props are necessary though if you have a mat, something that can be used like a yoga strap, and 1-2 blocks (or something that can be used in substitute like hardback books)...these will support your practice. I will offer suggestions with this when you first join in.
Yoga with Jessie Lu
Energizing practice that will link movement, breath, and stillness (held poses), offering a focus on both stretching and strengthening. Good option for intermediate and up practitioners with some previous yoga experiences, or are healthy, fit, and without injury. Modifications are offered to suit a variety of levels.
Yoga with Shannon
75 minutes of vinyasa style yoga. A breath- linked to movement class full of strong creative flows, core and stability work, balancing and standing postures, with some breathwork and longer relaxing holds mixed in. My goal is to make students feel strong and present in their bodies and to make yoga feel accessible to all. Modifications are always offered. Some yoga experience is great, but not required.
