Grace instructs the following:
Foundation and FUNdamentals
for students with little or no yoga experience.
Gentle (for healthy aging)
This class is designed for the aging body. We will stretch and breathe while learning about key muscles involved in the postures and how we can engage them to create a deeper and more stable practice. Using props whenever necessary, we will open areas of the body that modern life does not access (or in fact tightens), leading to better physiological health, i.e. practicing passive backbends improves breathing and circulation to the heart. Using Yoga we will maintain strength and flexibility, along with dignity and grace!
Emphasis on alignment and holding of postures in the classic Iyengar fashion. Use of props encouraged.
Great for beginners and more experienced students who wish to concentrate on form.
