Garden of the Heart Yoga

Are you curious about yoga, but been afraid to try it? Do you think you can't do yoga because you're not flexible? Do you want to reduce stress and learn how to relax more fully? Are you ready to change your mind about your body? Do you want to connect with like minded, health conscious people? Join Maureen Gillum, RTY-200, for a 10 week Introduction to Yoga course that can get you started on a new life path. The class meets once a week, on Mondays at 10:30 am, so you can come after work and make a peaceful transition to the rest of your evening. No prior yoga experience is necessary. You'll learn the basics of standing poses, beginning back bends, easy twisting postures, seated poses, and the components of sun salutations. By the end of 10 weeks, you'll have increased strength and flexibility, a better understanding of your mind/body/breath connection, and you'll be learning to be compassionate with yourself and others, as you recognize how we are all interconnected. Basic yoga philosophy will be taught, as well as breathing techniques, beginning meditation, and how to relax in Savasana. This is more than a yoga class at the gym! Classes begin October 7 and run through Dec. 9th Drop in rate is $15 for each one-hour class, but sign up for the whole series and get 10 classes for $100 and a free yoga mat to take home.
