Happy New Year 2021!
The Cottonwood Palo Verde Fitness Center is open, and we are doing yoga. Practicing yoga releases endorphins in your brain. You feel relaxed and happy. Vinyasa Yoga also improves proprioception and strengthens and stretches your muscles, and you become more flexible. It helps you feel and move like a younger person, gives you a sense of wellbeing, improves your performance in other activities, and you will meet some nice people. In Vinyasa Yoga, we do standing, seated, twisting, balancing, and lying Asanas (poses), synchronizing our breathing with our movements. Because this is a dynamic rather than a static practice, it is not suitable for students who have never done yoga before. However, if you are fit and healthy, Tuesday’s class may be a good fit for you. Both Tuesdays and Thursdays I will offer modifications so everyone can benefit from their practice, and everyone can explore their limits. Tuesday’s classes will be less challenging than Thursday’s. We will move slower, and I will offer more modifications. Thursday’s classes may move a bit faster, and more challenging variations may be offered.
Protocols for class size are being followed. Classes are Tuesdays and Thursdays at 10 a.m. CWPV residents can reserve a spot in class up to two weeks ahead of time on the Cottonwood Palo Verde website.
Residents of all other Sun Lakes communities are welcome and can reserve a spot in class by calling the Fitness Center early in the morning of class at 480-895-1776.
Pay me directly in the classroom, $5 per class. I can be reached at 480-264-9951.
