YOGA FOR BEGINNERS with Trish. If you have been wanting to try yoga, now is the time. Instructor Trish Keating will be teaching a 75 minute beginner yoga class on Monday evening at 4:30pm in the Franklin Arts Center Studio. In this class we will, strengthen our bodies and gain flexibility, learn breath and breathing techniques, learn basic yoga poses, and incorporate those poses into a choreographed vinyasa flow.
YOGA FOR STRENGTH with Kaitlyn. Returns 9-20-2018 Getting together to stimulate our bodies while relaxing our minds. In this yoga class we will be practicing balance, strength, and flexibility. We will be working through traditional and non-traditional styles of Yoga Asana’s “poses,”breath work, and Shavasana’s “relaxation.” Join us as we turn inward to practice finding a little more peace and balance in our day to day lives.
MID-WEEK BREATHER: with Jazzi. In this slow flowing class, students will synchronize breath with movement in a heated room, around 75-78 degrees. This is a great class for those who want the benefits of the warm room without the speed and intensity that often comes with a vinyasa or power yoga class. It is also a great class if you are looking to settle your nervous system or get a really good night’s sleep. In this class, you will open and stretch your muscles with slow movement, careful alignment and conscious breath work. It won’t be easy or lazy, just slow, thoughtful, and grounding.
TUESDAY MORNING GENTLE YOGA with Sarah For those new to yoga, or experienced students: a potpourri of yoga practices in a casual, friendly atmosphere. You don’t have to stand on your head or twist yourself into a pretzel to receive the benefits of a regular yoga practice. Easily-accessible yoga poses can lead to increased mobility/flexibility throughout the body, pain reduction, stress-relief, relaxation and an enhanced sense of well-being. We combine gentle yoga poses with vinyasa flow and mix in elements of pranayama (breathwork), relaxation, laughter and continuing education on many aspects of yoga. Appropriate for students of any age or ability.
RESTORATIVE: Restorative Yoga and Yoga Nidra help us to transition from thinking & doing to feeling & being. We transition from the world around to here and now: the present moment. We find the stillness to direct our awareness onto our own sweet selves: our bodies, feelings, states of mind and consciousness itself. As we release muscular tensions and emotional blocks, we can find a way for our busy 'monkey mind' to rest.
In this class, you can expect a mix of gentle yoga, yin yoga, breathwork (pranayama), restorative yoga and yoga nidra (“the sleep of the yogis”), bringing you to the time and space to relax the mind. Relish, release, relax and refresh! This class is open to all, regardless of experience, ability, age or size.
Yoga is for everyone.
We offer a variety of classes for every level and style and each class offers variations to suit your level of ability.
