After teaching the popular series, “Intro to Yoga” and “Yoga for Beginners” for many years, Lili Powell now offers a Level 1 drop-in class for new and returning students. Advanced registration is not required. Simply show-up and get signed in once you’re at our Jefferson School location. Class is Pay-What-You-Can $5-$15.
This Level 1 class invites students to reduce stress and enhance their overall well-being and vitality in a safe, alignment-based class. Open to all ages and bodies. You will learn how yoga can help you reduce stress, enjoy increasing your fitness and health, and contribute to an improved personal outlook.
Weekly themes may include: posture, strength, flexibility, balance, mind/mood, or spirit. Lili encourages questions and supplements the classes with information about the roots, science, and benefits of yoga. Weekly topics may include somewhat more philosophical yoga practice, such as how to adopt a “beginner’s mind” or practice balance on and off the mat by grounding, centering and working with resistance.
For brand new and returning yoga students, and others who want to review yoga essentials in a safe, alignment-based class. No fancy yoga togs needed.
