Zoom Class Offerings
Improving well-being is more than just a fitness decision, it’s a lifestyle commitment. My classes provide an excellent opportunity to exercise your body and mind, but they’re also places to gather virtually with other open-minded individuals. I am offering seven weekly donation based classes through the free online conferencing app, Zoom. Within two hours of class, I will email you a link to access our virtual conference room. When it's time for class, simply roll out your mat and situate your laptop or phone camera 7-8 feet from your mat so that I can see you or opt out of sharing your video stream if you prefer. I will mute you during class so no worries about noisy kids, pets, or roommates. Check out my class offerings and join me for a class today.
This class is ideal for those who enjoy a softer, nurturing, slower paced practice or who are new or returning to yoga. Gentle yoga is a bridge between moving in slow flow and staying stationary, holding some poses for a few breaths to work on proper alignment and settle into the pose. The class will include stretching on the floor, some gentle core strengthening as well as standing and balancing poses. There is no rush through the sequences and very little work will be weight bearing on the hands. Gentle Yoga is offered on Sundays at 9:30am, Mondays at 2:00pm and Tuesdays at 6:00pm.
This class will be offered at a level between Gentle Yoga and Vinyasa with variations to suit beginner through advanced students. It will incorporate more upper body work than Gentle Yoga while focusing on maintaining slow breathing throughout the class. Proper alignment of the poses will be heavily emphasized. The slower pace is more conducive to the meditative practices of mindful action and awareness of breath. It is well-suited for newer students or for those who desire deep concentration within their practice. Slow Flow is on Mondays at 8:30 and Thursdays at 4:30pm.
This upbeat class includes physical movements designed to exercise every part of the body, as well as an opportunity for relaxation, stress reduction and relief of muscular tension. Proper alignment of the poses will be emphasized throughout class as you stretch and engage your muscles and work to improve flexibility. This class is well suited for athletic people or intermediate yogis. Vinyasa is offered on Saturdays at 9:00am EDT.
This class consists of a series of long-held, passive floor poses that mainly work the hips, legs and torso. The poses are usually held from three to five minutes, targeting deep connective tissues of the body. You use lots props to support your body during practice so you don't have to use your muscles to hold your body in place. A yoga bolster is a great prop for this class because they are soft but structured but throw pillows from the sofa are a good substitution for a yoga bolster. You could also try using pillows from your bed and add a rolled up towel or two inside the pillow case. Yin is offered on Fridays at 5:00pm.
In addition to my Zoom classes I also have the following offerings.
These in-person, physically distanced outdoor yoga classes will be held through October for Briar Chapel residents only. There will be a Gentle Yoga class on Wednesday from 4:45 - 5:45 and a Slow Flow on Saturdays from 9:00 - 10:00. Sign up below to receive more information about these classes.
