“Autumn shows us how beautiful it is to let things go.” – Unknown. The season is upon us - the beautiful brilliant colors of trees against the blue autumn sky, giving way to leaves floating as the trees release, then the cool starkness of winter. Yoga can help us embrace the simplicity of letting go of anything not needed. Then we open to new possibilities.
All three yoga options below support strength, flexibility, vitality, and balance, with healthy warm-ups, classic yoga postures, and a yogic play between stretching and releasing. The sequencing in this whole body approach creates safety. A key feature is Pranayama, with focus on and control of life-giving breath. Yogic breathing cleanses the body and supports prana, life energy. The inner body receives as well, as stretching, releasing, receiving nutrients and releasing toxins happens on a cellular level.
1. Gentle Yoga. A compassionate approach with time to relish sensations and choose appropriate variations. Includes standing, seated, and floor postures with a deep relaxation. Great for beginners.
“Laura recognized each of us and our own individual capabilities.” – Wende Miller
Gentle Yoga Tuesday at 10:00-11:00
2. Yoga with Chairs. Yoga postures, with the many benefits throughout the body, using chairs as a tool of support. Helpful for those experiencing injuries or physical challenges. A good choice if it’s difficult to do standing postures without support or get up and down from the floor. A deep relaxation at the end.
"In the Zoom Chair Yoga class, she observes and makes helpful suggestions as if we were in the same room. She adapts traditional yoga postures to honor our physical challenges." – Kathryn Richards
