Hi Chicago Curvy Girls,
I'd like to invite you all to come get your yoga on Saturday mornings and find your balance at Tula Yoga Studio in Logan Square! If it is your first time taking a yoga class at Tula, you may enjoy your first "Yoga Within Reach" class FREE of charge. Please plan to arrive about 10 minutes early to fill out a first-time visitor form and let the studio staff know that you are part of the Chicago Curvy Girls meetup group. Read on for more details ...
About the class
This non-heated class is ideal for beginners and students seeking a more accessible practice, including plus sizes! Class is taught by yours truly, a plus-size instructor, and explores basics of hatha yoga philosophy, poses and alignment, centering, controlled breathing and meditation techniques in a welcoming, relaxed learning environment. Poses are performed on the floor from various reclining, seated, hands and knees, and standing positions and may also include some gentle, inverted positions. Emphasis is on empowering students to enjoy a well-rounded, regular yoga practice that serves to develop greater awareness, strength, flexibility and balance, ultimately contributing to overall well being and inner peace.
Modified techniques, incorporating various yoga props (blankets, bolsters, blocks and straps) and the wall, are used to help make the practice of yoga accessible and fun for all. Please discuss with the instructor before the start of class any special physical modifications needed. A supply of yoga props in addition to yoga mats are available at the studio but please feel free to bring along your own favorite mat or set of props, if you prefer. As for what to wear, tops and pants/shorts made of comfortable, breathable and stretchable fabrics that allow you to move easily and freely are recommended. Please also feel free to bring a thermos or bottle of water into class.
Please note that the first FREE class (as noted above) is not retroactive; if you have already taken another class at the studio, you are not eligible for the free class offer. The price of a single class for dop-ins is $16, and 10-pack, unlimited monthly membership and unlimited annual membership options are also available for purchase.
There is typically ample pay-box and some free street parking near the studio.
