Beginning Gentle Yoga
A slower paced and very beginner yoga class. This class is designed to strengthen the body gradually while building on the five essentials of movement: balance, mobility, agility, stability and flexibility. Yoga postures and other movement forms will be introduced with an emphasis on moving to feel better, conscious breathing, alignment, and relaxation. The use of chairs and other props is offered to ensure that the benefits of yoga are available for those with varying degrees of strength and flexibility. Please bring your own yoga mat. All other props are provided. The class will meet on Tuesdays from July 10 to August 28, 8:30 – 9:30 am at the Community Center. Cost for the session is $48.

The class will meet on Wednesdays from July 11 to August 15, 1:30 – 2:30 pm, at the Community Center. Cost for the session is $42.
This 90-minute class combines active and passive yoga postures, with deep breathing and meditation. We’ll move through a series of Hatha-based yoga poses to build heat and strength in the body.

The class will meet on Thursday evenings from July 12 to August 30, 5:30 – 7:00 pm at the Community Center. Cost for the session is $75.
