Tuesdays & Thursdays
Chair Yoga w/ Annie Jones
Tuesdays (New series begin July 13), 10:00 – 11:00 AM
Thursdays, 10:00 – 11:00 AM
Chair yoga is a gentle form of yoga that is practiced sitting on a chair or using a chair for support during standing poses. Yoga is all about moving life force energy (called prana). When living energy reaches every part of our being we experience less pain, more relaxation, and a general state of well-being. Chair yoga helps increase flexibility, lung capacity, circulation, and strength, improves balance, and relieves stress. The class incorporates breathing exercises, stretching, yoga postures, and final relaxation.
The class is formed on a module-based class structure to provide for a personalized attention and to increase your ability to experience the benefits of yoga in a fun, nurturing and supportive environment. No prior yoga experience necessary. Wheelchair accessible. Class category: Easiest.
Cost: $10 Drop-in; $8 w/ a Lotus class card.
Vinyasa Yoga w/ Patricia
Wednesdays, 5:30 - 6:45 PM
An energetic class that synchronizes breath (pranayama) with specific postures (asanas) that builds, in gradual stages, toward a peak within a class session. This flow class is all about continuous movement and breath. The class builds strength, flexibility, balance and endurance. Through the practice there is a natural alignment of the body, mind, emotion and spirit that leads to an experience of peace, power and flow both on and off the yoga mat. Some experience of yoga is helpful but not necessary, as modifications are offered for different levels.
