New participants are welcome. When new people come, more direction is given. It is very easy to follow along. You do not have to be limber or “in shape.” Slapping or tapping the body is done to get the blood and energy moving through the body. We also do a lot of joint rotations. This practice is based on ancient Asian Qigong principles and is very effective. The class schedule is the same, but each class will be a bit different.
Nidra Yoga is done on Tuesdays. This is a relaxing and meditative practice. Most people lie down on the mats, but you can sit in a chair. The body becomes very relaxed. The goal is to stay conscious aware, but some go to sleep for their first several sessions. You just relax and listen to my voice.
I am training in a Yoga program called Healing Emphasis Yoga at the Inner Vision Yoga Center. As I become certified in different aspects of this training, I will be teaching this. One is Core Stress Release (CRS). This is a method of releasing stress stored in the body. After exercising the psoas muscles, the quads and hamstrings, one is ready to release the stress stored there. This will be incorporated into some of the classes.
I am grateful for the donations and to those who come early and set up the room.
