Summer Fun Yoga Classes are Here!
Each class will feature a cooling posture sequence as we deal with the heat of the season. Having a Strong and Steady Yoga practice builds energy and joy — you will reap the many physical benefits from focused movements that prepare you to meet our sweltering summer days in stride!
A regular mind-body practice keeps you flexible, strengthens the back and joints, builds breath awareness, and opens the heart. Strong & Steady Yoga is an approach to movement that builds inner resilience in mind and spirit as we refine our physical alignment in postures.

Class Schedule, Times & Cost
Tuesdays 9:30 – 10:30 am: This chair-to-mat class focuses on postures that support bone health. We practice specific postures that target muscles and tissue in the spine and hips to stimulate bone development. This is an accessible class that is well paired with the Friday morning class. 4-Week Session Dates: June 29 – July 20, 2021
Wednesdays 12:00 – 1:00 pm: This mat-based class builds strength and stability in body, breath, and mind. Together we focus on alignment and fundamentals to build postures from the ground up, including lunges, balance postures, twists, and back bends. This is a good lead-in class for Saturday morning. 4-Week Session Dates: June 30 – July 21, 2021
Fridays 9:30 – 10:45 am: This gentle chair-to-mat class is designed to release tension, stretch the body, and support joint health. Full focus is on safe movement, alignment that supports the healthy spine. As my most accessible class, it is great for anyone with age-related health conditions or recovering from physical injury. 4-Week Session Dates: July 9 – July 30, 2021
Saturdays 9:30 – 10:45 am: This mat-based class builds strength and stability in body, breath, and mind.

Notes about Zoom Yoga:
Virtual classes allow you to be with YOUR experience without the distraction of other participants in the room. At the same time, I need to remind you that you are responsible to gauge the safety of your practice within your personal limitations. It’s better to build up strength over time rather than force or strain. The experience you should notice is exertion with relaxation. Stay safe and adapt the teachings to your level of energy and flexibility, inviting some joy and release into your day! Come try it out!
Accessing Zoom: All classes are taught live via the Zoom platform. You can sign up for a free Zoom account at: https://zoom.us/ I will send you the specific class link once you have signed up for a class.
Preparation: Please set up your personal practice space at home with your yoga mat (rug, towel) or chair (solid folding chairs are great), blocks (thick books), a strap (belt, dog leash, sash). It’s nice to have a blanket and pillow handy as well.
Please arrive into the Zoom room a few minutes early to settle in and adjust settings. I typically arrive into our Zoom room 10 minutes before class and stay on 10 minutes after class.
Let me know if you’ve got any questions… I look forward to continuing our yoga journey together
