This is a challenging yet relaxing fitness class focusing heavily on proper alignment and breathing techniques. These exercises will increase your total body flexibility, balance, and strength while cultivating a sense of well-being through focused breathing and active meditation. You will notice improved posture, stamina, and often a decrease in existing back/neck pain. Some knowledge of Yoga or Pilates, or a moderate level of physical fitness will increase your success in this class. We occasionally focus on student-requested areas such as upper body strength, tight hamstrings, etc.

With hands-on classroom instruction and extensive verbal coaching, students will develop a deeper understanding of the benefits of yoga on overall health. Increased flexibility, balance, and strength will be achieved by practicing and perfecting poses while standing, sitting, lying, and twisting.

  • Review and refine standing poses such as Mountain, Warrior I, II, and III, Tree, Forward Fold, Chair, etc.
  • Review and refine sitting poses such as Staff, Straddle Fold, Head to Knee, Tailor, Camel, etc.
  • Review and refine lying poses such as Cobra, Locust, Half Fish, Roll Up, Bridge, Bow, etc.
  • 4. Review and refine twisting poses such as Revolved Triangle, Chair Twist, Seated Three Twist, etc.
