Tuesdays, 6pm MT

 

Chair Yoga

Just pull up a chair and you can do yoga.  Chair Yoga ranges from gentle to more challenging.  If you are a beginner, have injuries or illness the chair is the perfect place to be.  If you are a more advanced practitioner, the chair might just surprise you – you can deepen your practice in ways you haven’t experienced.  
 
Poses will be seated in a chair, standing, and (optional) on the mat, all using a chair as a prop.  Chair yoga will help increase flexibility, strength, and focus while receiving the mood enhancing and stress reducing benefits of yoga.  This class will include breath-work, stretching, strengthening, meditation and relaxation.
 
Why are we so averse to taking support? I’ve been in so many yoga classes where people refuse to use blocks.  Instead, they over-stretch, or compromise their alignment.  Blocks lengthen our arms and legs, compensate for imbalances and restrictions, and bring the floor closer.  Using a chair does the same.  Used wisely, a chair allows you to go even deeper–opening up to greater opportunities for movement–softening into poses, rather than fighting or forcing your way through them. With support, so much more is possible!
 
You will need a yoga mat or safe area that is not slippery; a yoga chair, sturdy folding chair or side chair (no arms);  yoga blocks, if available; a blanket or towel; and a yoga strap or belt. 
Thursdays, 10am MT (starts May 27th)

Gentle Flow

 A slower-gentle flow yoga class suitable for all levels.  The simple, slow movements and positive intentions will clear space for the day ahead.  This class provides a nice balance to a busy day and an opportunity for mindfully deepening your practice.  You will leave class with some freedom in both your mind and body without breaking too much of a sweat.
