Sunday, May 5th, 11am. No yoga experience necessary. This is not intended to be a medical recommendation or cure. We are addressing minor back pain, aches and pains that stem from daily stress, postural concerns and general activity. You can gain a better understanding of the simple anatomy involving your back pain and possible causes. We will move through appropriate yoga postures that improve your range of motion to support and stabilize your spine with more awareness. There will be time for demonstrations, questions and relaxation.
Yoga for Anxiety explores simple concepts that disrupt the anxiety process in your body and retrains your physiology. It helps reduce and often eliminate anxiety with practice. Yoga experience is not necessary.
All the concepts are simple and some of them are just plain fun. Some take a little practice and some you already do.
All in all, it’s an easy class to introduce you to some simple ways to feel better.
Warm up flow before a breakdown of the foundational alignment for 8-10 common postures in a yoga practice.
Think of alignment as your base foundation. Like soil in the garden. It has to be stable, healthy, supportive and adaptable. If it’s too tight, there’s no room for growth. If it’s too loose there’s nothing to connect to. And you might even use a different type of soil for different crops.
Your foundation may look different than those around you – it’s unique to your structure. But the concepts of stability and mobility are constant. You’ve got to get grounded before you grow.

EVERYONE can practice yoga. It’s not just a balanced physical practice. It’s also a balanced state of mind. It’s about moving your body in a way that strengthens, releases tension and creates balance. And also in a way that encourages focus, optimism and enthusiasm. If you’re not enthusiastic about your own well being . . . this is a great place to start. You get to connect with others, connect with your self and interact in the world with more courage, compassion and clarity.
