Beginner's Yoga

This is a good class for people new to Yoga. The series will start in a gentle manner and over time, as you get stronger and more flexible, the class will gradually get more challenging. During the series you will learn the basics of Yoga which are the asanas (postures) and some pranayamas (breathing techniques.) The postures and breathing techniques enable you to expand your awareness so you can hear the messages your body sends. This helps you to live with stress in a more healthy way.

If you have injuries the best advice is to plan a 15 minute to 1 hour session with Liz. Modifications will be given that would not only substitute postures for you but that could speed the recovery process.


 


Chair Yoga 

Chair Yoga is good for people who have limitations with movement. We do full range of movements for each joint while sitting in the chair to prepare the joints for the yoga practice; we do standing postures with the help of the chair; and we do postures lying and sitting on the floor. It is easy to learn adaptations for postures in this class. This is a good class for people new to yoga as well.


 

Gentle to Moderate Yoga 

This class is for people who have already learned the basics of yoga. The directions for the postures are given so that you will be able to do the yoga in a gentle way or make it more challenging. In addition, you will learn classic breathing techniques (pranayamas) that will help you gain more control over your breath and therefore your energy and mind.

 


 

Power (Vinyasa) Yoga 

Vinyasa means, 'to flow'. We will flow from one posture to another, each muscle is challenged by strengthening and stretching creating an internal massage. You will feel cleansed and refreshed after a deep relaxation.

 


Yoga Party

You’ve heard of a Tupperware Party.  This is a Yoga Party.  You can have a Yoga Class in a place of your choice (home, work, park, rented space, etc.) and invite friends, co-workers, neighbors, and/or relatives to join you.  This is great for you to share the benefits of Yoga with people who’ve never tried it before. 

You can take it a step further and add chair or regular massage for a complete Spa Day when and where you want it.
