Gentle Yoga is for Every BODY!

Thursday, November 30, 2017

Gentle Yoga is particularly recommended for people who feel stiff and out of shape, because it’s a slower practice that focuses on making it easier to get into postures. It can also be helpful for people recovering from injuries or surgery, or who have joint replacements and need to approach postures slowly and carefully. For those who want a softer, nurturing, slow-paced, and relaxing practice, this is for you.  Its carefully orchestrated movements, controlled pressure, and well-measured stretches, include range of motion exercises linked with breath.

We enter into the postures gradually—moving in and out of each pose first, and then finding a holding position. This preparation protects and nurtures the joints, muscles, and connective tissue.

Gentle Yoga is a slower paced vinyasa based class that is also designed for those wishing to expand their practice. A gentle yoga style encourages a highly individualized approach to practice with on-going encouragement to make moment-to-moment adjustments.

New class starting this week at our WHEATON Studio!

Join the wonderful Barb every Friday morning at 10:45am for GENTLE YOGA!
