Gentle Flow for Calming the Mind and Lifting your Mood – A 4 week series

Click here to sign up for Gentle Hatha!

This is a lovely 60 minute combination of gentle flow and yin yoga that opens and strengthens the body, while also calming the mind.

Gentle flow is a meditative practice that offers mindful movement that is linked with the breath.  Yin Yoga is a relaxed practice of floor postures that are held from three to five minutes targeting the deeper connective tissue, including ligaments, joints and fascia. This calming, stress-relieving class offers a gentle approach to stretching and strengthening the body gradually through poses that are practiced at a slower pace.

The experience will cultivate harmony between strength and flexibility, stability and mobility.   An all-around great class for all shapes, sizes and abilities.  Modifications/props will be offered.

This course will be offered on Sundays,  9:00 – 10:00AM from April 28th – May 19th. 

This 4 week series is being offered Pay-What-You-Can $20-$80. The value of this series is $80. Sign-up from here.

You can pay online for the series in increments of $10 between $20-$80. You are also welcome to pay over the phone at 434-218-7677, or in person at our Jefferson School location when we have other services going on.
