Friday Mornings, 10:00-11:00am

Chair Yoga is one of the gentlest forms of yoga available.  Students perform postures with the aid of a chair, experiencing all the benefits of yoga while alleviating the need for getting up and down from the floor. This class is appropriate for all levels of students–from beginner to advanced–looking for a slow, steady, and purposeful practice. Variations and modifications to all poses will be offered, as well as attention paid to safe body alignment and use of gear / props. Breath work, meditation, gratitude, guided rest, and mindful movement are all offered as part of this practice.  

 

All Levels Yoga – Friday Mornings (ongoing), 8:30-9:30am at Dance Arts Academy OR (online via Zoom!)

Friday Mornings, 8:30-9:30am

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.

 

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 2021).  

 

Equipment:   

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

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.
