Cloverdale - Yoga on Center
105 E. First Street, Cloverdale
From October onwards, I will be teaching three classes a week. For information about these classes, see this information sheet. You need to purchase a pass at Yoga on Center to attend these classes and any other of their offerings.
Thursdays 7.30-8.30 am
Active Vinyasa This one hour class begins with a simple opening sequence for hips, shoulders and spine and leads into cycles of more dynamic and creative vinyasa flow. We include one inversion, followed by a short cool-down and resting period. An optional 10-15 minute meditation or longer relaxation period occurs from 8.30-8.45am. Not suitable for total beginners or those with wrist, back or shoulder issues.
Thursdays 9-10 am
Basic Yoga Time to become familiar with foundational yoga principles in a class which touches all the bases and is enjoyable for a wide range of practitioner from beginner to continuing student, even advanced students who want a gentler pace! Each week we begin with supine poses and breath-work which leads into simple seated and standing poses. We end with a guided/silent relaxation. Individual attention is given to alignment and learning sequences/poses that enhance range of motion, decrease stress and both refresh and relax ones whole being.
This Monday class is an active asana class which will begin and end with a short meditation. It will explore all aspects of a fully balanced practice: Standing Poses, Vinyasa, Seated and Supine Poses, Inversions, Backbends and Twists. Each month we will end one class with some restorative poses. Options will be given to those not inverting or doing some of the more challenging poses but this is not a beginners class. It is suited to those who have a home practice, are teachers, or who want to be challenged and have no serious back/shoulder/neck problems. Each week we will have a theme and there will be poetry, imagery and breath-work to integrate the asana and allow us to leave revitalized, serene and ready for anything!
