Fundamentals of Yoga | Greg riley
The intention of this Saturday morning class is to build the strong foundation of a lifelong yoga practice based upon the sequential principles of raising consciousness found in the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. At the physical level, emphasis will be on awakening joint mobility and function through strong and flowing movements. At the energetic level, the work will be to access the vitality of the breath and mobilize the energetic channels. Healthy physical function and energetic capacity will then be utilized to establish the deeper practices of pranayama, concentration, and meditation. All this esoteric stuff will be taught in the spirit of the heart, with joy for living always the overriding theme. With compassion, "progress, not perfection", will be our guiding principle. The movements in this class will be vigorous and challenging, however all movements will be demonstrated in mild, medium, and intense variations so all students can progress at their own intelligent pace. Thus, all levels of students are welcome.

Midweek Rest (Yin and Restorative YOga) | SANDI SMITH-GROVE, Victoria Nicholsen, Ellen Rutgers

Starting with gentle stretches to help our bodies unfurl from our day-to-day activities. Moving into gentle Yin poses to allow gravity to relieve sore muscles more deeply. To finish our practice, we’ll settle into restorative poses, to find the deep quiet and relaxation that our bodies crave.
