Yin Yoga – Thursdays from 6 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. (Starting October 4th, 2018)
(ARRIVAL TIME – 5:55 p.m. Building doors are locked after this time.)
Yoga as practiced in the Western world tends to focus on Western expectations – as a result most classes are yang focused. These classes tend to be vigorous and active, working mostly muscles – the yang half of our bodies. A yin class focuses on the other half of our bodies – the tissues of our ligaments, joints and deep fasciae (most of our muscle tissue contains fasciae). It is a great balance to those of us who enjoy rigorous types of exercise like running or biking, although it is well suited to anyone – regardless of their age, lifestyle or flexibility. In this class we will move deeply into each asana – allowing the body to melt into each shape for a few minutes. As well-known yin teacher Bernie Clark states, “We do not use the body to get into the pose, we use the pose to get into the body.” The results are a deeper stretch into the muscles, and an increase in balance and mobility. The class well end with a yoga-nidra type relaxation.
Yoga Classes are $15 per session.
The kids are starting back to school for a new year – what better time to start on a new you? Not “yoga for seniors” – in this class we use the chair as a support to move us from one asana to the next, standing and enjoying the benefits of a gentle practice and closing with meditation – all ages and stages welcome. I am offering a back to school special through the end of September for new clients – buy four classes, get one class free. Existing clients – get a free class if you refer a friend. These yoga specials will expire October 4th.
I am also offering an intro half-price holistic guidance session for $47.50; this will expire on November 2nd. Let me guide you to empower yourself to have a more balanced lifestyle.
“Everyone I know wants to be in Louise’s class! She’s one of the most knowledgeable and thoughtful instructors I’ve ever had. You’ll leave feeling relaxed, centered & energized.”
“Louise combines a gentle athleticism with an approach to letting each student progress at her own pace and within her own comfort zone. Plus, her background as a chaplain allows her to add uplifting and spiritual elements to her classes which enhance them. I would highly recommend that anyone take a class from Louise.”
