Yoga for Functional Aging

We lose bone and muscle mass as we age, which can lead to a host of health problems. This class focuses on yoga postures that promote flexibility, coordination, strength and mobility while incorporating some vinyasa flows to increase the heart rate a little. Other movements that promote strength and coordination may be incorporated at times. Meditation and pranayama (breathwork) are practiced to connect the body and mind. Beginners are welcome and modifications and progressions are available to suit all individuals.

Chill-asana

 That state of bliss when you’ve connected your body, mind and spirit through a yoga practice. Gail Herzog will use yoga poses (asanas), breathing exercises, mindful relaxation and guided visualization to transport you to your “Happy Place.”   All levels welcome

Silent Mind, Strong Body

Meditation techniques, breath work (pranayama) and yoga postures (asansas) are used to connect the mind and body but there is more emphasis on building strength through some intermediate postures and more invigorating class sequences.

Balance and Restore

Ease into your weekend with this mellow vinyasa –based flow class. Using seated meditation, breathwork, and props, this class will help you connect back to YOU. Principles of alignment are combined with your controlled breath to increase strength, flexibility, awareness, and joy. One of the best rewards achieved from this class is that you will welcome a more relaxed and open state of mind as you align your body, mind, and spirit. Each student’s abilities and challenges will be honored by offering variations to support all ability levels.

Happy Flow Yoga

This is an all-levels class that includes asanas (postures), pranayama (breathwork) and meditation.

Yoga Nidra

Yoga Nidra (which means “yogic sleep”) uses specialized relaxation exercises, breathing techniques, meditation and guided imagery to lead you far beyond deep relaxation to a place of natural peace and quiet that is tremendously healing. You’ll experience profound relaxation, the release of chronic stress, restful sleep, resolution to many of your life’s conundrums and a greater sense of harmony in your daily life and relationships. Ultimately, Yoga Nidra points directly to your True Nature, to peace that is beyond description and that is your birthright. This peace is not an empty promise or only for a selected few but is present and available to you right now. It is a delicious, profoundly healing practice that is available to everybody. No yoga experience necessary.
