Yoga for Every Body: May 2021 Series

Thursday, May 20 at 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 7:00 pm on Thursday, repeating until Thursday, May 20, 2021

Join us for three sessions of yoga: 5/6, 5/13, 5/20, at 7pm.

Please register once for the series; Zoom links will be sent out ahead of the first class.

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 this question, 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.

These classes are mostly non-vinyasa which mean they move from posture to posture with longer holds. We have time to sink into postures, listen to our bodies and make adjustments and modifications to suit our individual and unique bodies. Special attention is given to alignment, safety and modifications for injury. Classes vary depending on the theme. A welcoming class for everyone. Every class is different based on YOUR needs! This class will be easiest for people who can get up and down from the floor, but modifications can be shown for those who require a chair. A yoga mat is helpful, but a towel or rug can be used. Also helpful, but not required are a block and strap, though belts, ties or scarves fill in nicely for a yoga strap.
