Variations and modifications to all poses will be offered, as well as attention paid to safe body alignment and use of gear / props.

This socially distanced class will adhere to all current regulations for in-person yoga classes during COVID-19.  Brianna will keep all participants aware of these regulations to ensure that everyone is able to safely enjoy in-person yoga classes again.  This class is designed for any student looking to practice yoga. Movement will be linked with breath (as offered by the Hatha and Kripalu traditions of yoga), as well as focus on alignment, and attention paid to honoring your own organic movement. Students can expect to practice both seated and standing poses as well as focus on balance and breath.  Please bring your own mat and any props you would like, as sharing supplies is discouraged at this point.  With understanding that many people are experiencing economic hardship due to COVID19, the Library Arts Center is offering full and partial scholarships to participants in need of such help to make it possible to partake in this class. 

Please email info@libraryartscenter.org to start a discussion about a scholarship if needed.  As this is an outdoor class, please note it will be canceled if raining, and an online class will be offered instead.  Online purchase passes are available for touchless payment for this drop-in style class, or pay in cash when you arrive. 

 

Cost:   

$12 per session, for single session     

OR   

$40 for a four-class pass

 

(Class passes may be used for any four yoga classes hosted by the Library Arts Center in 2020).  As we are now in need of limiting physical class size to safely practice together indoors, pre-registration is required.  Drop-ins will be allowed if space is available, but pre-registered participants will have priority.

 

Equipment:   

We recommend that participants bring their own yoga mats, and any other needed equipment.  Shared equipment is highly discouraged during the COVID-19 Pandemic.  Equipment for communal use will not be provided during this time.

 

Liability Waiver: 

All participants will be asked to sign a release of liability at least once annually to be able to participate in yoga at the Library Arts Center. 

 

Temporary Location:  Dance Arts Academy, Sunapee, NH  

During the fall/winter of 2020/2021, classes will be meeting at Dance Arts Academy in Sunapee.  Stay tuned for when classes will resume at the Library Arts Center.
