Yoga For Every Body!

Have you seen pictures of people doing yoga in magazines, on Facebook and Instagram and said something like this to yourself? “I can’t do yoga! I’m not flexible. I don’t have the right clothes. I’m too old. I’m too young. I’m too fat. I’m out of shape. I can’t get up and down from the floor.” If you answered yes to any of these questions, you are wrong! You CAN do yoga! You just haven’t found the right yoga for YOU! Yoga is for EVERY BODY, and Leslie wants to help you.
Yoga for Every Body is a Gentle class that anyone can access. In this class, you will stretch and strengthen your body. You will learn how to breathe properly and how appropriate posture can completely change the way you feel. You will be exposed to what Leslie refers to as “the Yoga Toolbox” to discover different ways to combat the stress that is inevitable in life! Movement is incredibly important to your body, and Leslie will show you how to move safely and effectively through many different yoga movements. This whole class can be done in a chair with modifications if you cannot get up and down from the floor. A yoga mat is helpful, but not required. Other props, like yoga blocks and straps, will be demonstrated at the first class, and you can decide if you want or need to use them. Leslie will give you some ideas about what you can use around your house if you don’t own props. Dress in layers in loose-fitting clothing, and try not to eat a heavy meal within an hour of the class.
