Beginning Yoga 6 Week Series


If you are new to yoga, or you are ready to resume your practice after a long hiatus, our Beginning Yoga 6 Week Series offers a welcome, encouraging and safe environment to explore basic yoga poses and philosophy. Flexibility is not required.  No prior yoga experience is required nor expected. Proper alignment of basic yoga poses will be practiced with modifications offered with the use of props.  Breathing techniques (pranayama) and meditation will improve focus and relaxation. 


Mondays 10:30 - 11:30am       March 2 - April 6

Wednesdays 5:30-6:30pm     March 4- April 8  

Taught by Clare Vilenski (Monday mornings) and Polly Wing (Wednesday evenings).  

Yoga For Strength

We'll learn the fundamentals of yoga and movement to enhance mobility, stability, and balance. We'll add strength to traditional yoga poses with the use of elastic bands and specific movement. We also take time to use small therapy balls to erase tension and promote down-regulation. Added optional challenges make this appropriate for all levels. Loretta guarantees a light-hearted fun learning environment.


Wednesdays 9:00-10:00am    
Taught by Loretta Zedella



Yoga Nidra/Asana Transformation

Class begins with a 30 minute Yoga Nidra journey led by Garrett to release deeply held stress from the body and mind. During a 15-minute pause/savasana, arriving students may quietly enter the studio for the second part of the class. At 6:15 pm, Catherine will blend gentle asana, yin, and restorative poses to provide additional physical nurturing. This class heals a full range of physical/mental conditions such as lack of sleep, fatigue, anxiety, depression, problem resolution, life transitions, and grief.

Yin Yoga

Passive use of floor poses to promote flexibility in the fascia (connective tissue) of the body and also promote health and stability in the major joints of the body through alignment.  Wonderful for athletes and baby boomers with joint concerns.  This practice also helps to focus the attention on being in the present moment (brain training).
