Strong & Steady Yoga Classes
Energize you Throughout the Year!
With a weekly Strong and Steady Yoga practice you will reap many benefits of movement in carefully sequenced postures to meet the cooler months of fall!
Overall, this mind-body practice, when practiced regularly, 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 have fun and refine our physical alignment in key foundational postures.
- All classes will continue to be accessible virtually via Zoom
- Participants will have the option to attend a monthly in-person class (Tues/Fri/Sat classes at the Unitarian Society of Germantown; Wed class at the Lutheran Church of the Holy Communion; stay tuned for details)
- $95 session special for NEW participants

Notes about Live Zoom Yoga:
Virtual classes allow you to be with YOUR experience without the distraction of other participants in the room. At the same time, 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. Aim for 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 am available to stay on for 10 minutes after class.
Let me know if you’ve got any questions… I look forward to our yoga journey together!
