Virtual Classes: Info & Schedule

Winter 2023/24

Strong & Steady Yoga Classes

Get Energized 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 transition to the cooling season of year! 

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.  

THIS WINTER…

  • All classes will continue to be taught live via Zoom
  • Special Introductory Rate: $95/session (for new participants)
  • Classes will sharpen our understanding of the basic principles guiding our practice.

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 for the safety of your practice. Stay 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 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 5-10 minutes before class and am available to stay on for a minutes after class.

Let me know if you’ve got any questions… I look forward to our yoga journey together!

Namaste!
