• Bend Balance and Breathe

    Online event

    Location: From your living room. Follow link below: Class begins 30 minutes after the posted time. If you are familiar with ZOOM, you can arrive/check in 10 minutes prior. This is a 75 minutes class. At this time of stress, we need to treat ourselves to a stress reliever and forget the worries for a while, to replenish our depleted sanity, improve our immune system and find our center. Please position your camera to you so I can see you. In the physical practice, we will focus on three things, bending (forward) postures, balancing and breathing. Bending postures stretch calves, hamstrings, spine, neck, back and give us a different angle of viewing the world around us. Slight backbends are necessary as counter postures. Balancing postures are critical corrective movements to bring us back to balance and centered. In times of uncertainty, either from lots of movements or lack thereof, balancing postures feed us the necessary grounding to calm, assure and root our foundation. Breathing is synchronized with each movement. Balancing also help build our grace and finesse in our movements. For every physical activity, there is a risk for injury. Please be mindful of your limitations and do not cross your limits. This class is donation based (all classes). Teacher: Del Marie Samson, ERYT500, YACEP, Author (Yoga for Daily Living)

  • Virtual Yoga Dhara

    Online event

    Location: From your living room. Follow link below: At this time of stress, we need to treat ourselves to a stress reliever and forget the worries for a while, to replenish our depleted sanity, improve our immune system and ground ourselves to center. Class begins 30 minutes after the posted time to allow for sign in. If you are familiar with ZOOM, you can arrive 10 minutes before class begins. Please position your camera to you so I can see you. Yoga dhara is a practice that allows movements to kindle sensations throughout the body from the result of gentle and flowing movements and options of natural or pulsing breaths; to untie the knots, to straighten the kinks and to send prana and energy to those crevices that need to wake up. Every part of the body is awakened. The beauty of the practice is that, the movements can be repeated half a dozen times or ten minutes at a time to set the length of your practice. It can be used as a warm-up or a practice all of its own. Its origin is from the lineage of Kriya Yoga or sometimes referred to as “loosening exercises”. We seal with pranayama and meditation. This is a friendly practice to all types of bodies and kind to injuries. For any physical activity, there is a risk of injury. Please be aware of your limitations and do not cross your limits. This is a donation based class (all classes). Teacher: Del Marie Samson, ERYT500, YACEP, Author (Yoga for Daily Living).

  • Hatha Yoga All Levels

    Online event

    Location: From your living room. How to join: Follow link: You will also receive an email for other options (Meeting ID and passcode) if you prefer to sign up that route. It will be emailed a day before the scheduled class time. Classes start 30 minutes after the scheduled opening time (to allow sign ins). This class is 90 minutes. Please direct your camera to you so I can see you. At this time of stress, we need to treat ourselves to a brief stress reliever and forget the worries for a while, to replenish our depleted sanity, improve our immune system and find our center. Description: All yoga is a spin off from Hatha differentiated by sequencing and grouping of asanas. In this class, we begin with sun salutations, an 11 movement sequence of asanas. Generally you do 12 of them but given our scenario of having an online class, I can adjust (lesser) depending on what I see or how well we can do together. (My style of teaching always begins with movements.) The rest of the asanas will be what most of you are familiar with, warrior, triangle, chair, dancer, eagle, side angle, forward bends, maybe crane or other balancing and seated postures. We seal with pranayama and meditation. Any physical activity has chances of risk to injuries specially if not done properly. Please be aware of your limitations and do not cross your limits. This is a donation based class (and all classes). Teacher: Del Marie Samson, ERYT500, YACEP, Author (Yoga for Daily Living).
