Each one-hour class is offered for mixed levels, but designed for beginners to intermediate yogis.
The 10:00 to 11:00 a.m. class practices breathing techniques and moves through some basic yoga poses, concentrating on alignment, balance, and flexibility. Those with experience move more deeply into the poses. Bring a small towel and a yoga mat if you have one. If not, a mat will be provided. If you have them, you can also bring blocks, a strap and a yoga blanket.
From 11:15 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. we practice gentle/chair yoga, which is ideal for those of more limited mobility or flexibility. Classes include breathing, stretching, and yoga poses, done either seated in a chair or standing. No yoga mats are required for this class.
First class is free, then sign up for the next three at $10 per class.
