Yoga Explorations: Breath, Body, and Mind

Taste of Colombia - Multipurpose Studio


This weekly 75-minute class is for those looking to explore yoga from it's many perspectives: the breath, the spine, the Self and the Non-Self. It's an expanded version of our Gentle Yoga Explorations class, with the addition of topsy-turvy postures such as working up to headstand, exploring backwards and forward bends, Sun Salutation variations, and playing with more advanced postures, along with yoga breathing techniques and meditative mind-body integration. Each class is different and gently challenging in ways that are unexpected and liberating. Emphasis is on awareness; on the movement of the spine; on the natural, child-like simplicity of a whole breath, and re-learning how to trust and release - and finding a sense of belonging from within. As always, Jennie uses her intuition and years of expertise when working with the energy present in the room - so every class is different. Although we play with asanas (yoga postures), the emphasis is purely on each individual's range of abilities and on personal development, so there is no pressure to be flexible or perfect in any posture. This is a safe and playful learning space where we welcome the opportunity for everyone to just be themselves! This is an open class, however we do stress that certain postures may be contra-indicated for health conditions such as high blood pressure, siatica, whiplash and other neck injuries, knee pain, glaucoma, diabetes, and heart disease. For anyone with conditions such as these, please join our sublime Gentle Yoga Explorations class on Tuesday mornings at 10:30! https://www.meetup.com/yogacirkel/events/cnggcqyxlbsb/ New Students: 3 classes for $30 75-minute drop-in class: $20 (or PWYC) 10-Class Pass: $180 Jennie is an insured instructor and is certified with Yoga Alliance.
