MAT: ACCESSING YOUR CORE
Wednesdays: 10:00 - 11:30 a.m.
January 4 - February 15: Seven weeks: $112
February 22 - April 5: Seven weeks: $112
Access your core by focusing on the powerful
and deep muscles in the abdominal region
and along the spine. Strengthening these muscles promotes good posture, spinal
stability, and may free you from common injuries on and off the mat. Through
use of Pilates exercises and props, this class will build strength, flexibility,
and stamina in the core and will also work on strengthening and stabilizing the
muscles in the arms, shoulder girdle, and pelvis. It will follow a level 1 Pilates
mat class set within a yoga class structure: beginning with yoga centering and
ending in final relaxation.
Thursdays: 5:45 - 7:15
January 5 - February 16: Seven weeks: $112
March 2 - April 6: Six weeks: $96

for both new and experienced yoga students. The two courses will be different.

one or both. Please obtain your doctor's or midwife's permission in writing

If you have been doing yoga for a little while, but do not think you are flexible
or ready to progress to the next level, this class is for you. Each class will
focus on a different body area or different type of pose with an emphasis on
stretching, strengthening, and balance. We will warm up the body slowly and
encourage the mind to stay open to the possibilities. If your mind is flexible,
you can do yoga! This class is appropriate for students who have completed
at least one session of Yoga 1. The two courses will be different. The second
course does not build on the first, so you may register for either one or both.
AND MINDFUL EATING

Materials fee: $10
Imagine putting a halt to dieting altogether. Using mindfulness techniques,
this six-week course is designed to teach you to tap into your body and trust
that it knows when and how much to eat. Learn mindfulness techniques to combat
stress eating in the moment and to help reduce urges that lead to overeating
or bingeing. Guilt and shame have been shown to contribute to the vicious cycle
of dieting, falling off the diet, feeling guilty over it, and then overeating
again. This is no way to live. Learn to foster self-compassion and change your
eating habits and your relationship with food forever.
Each class will begin
with instruction on the concepts of mindful eating along
with practical exercises. This will be
followed with the yoga portion of the class
which will be appropriate for students
of all levels. This popular and successful
program will help you to develop a stronger
mind/body connection and move you toward
an all-around healthier lifestyle. You
may wish to sign up for both sessions which
will vary slightly in order to reiterate
the concepts for greater understanding
and practice. No new students after the
first class. A $10 materials fee by cash
or check is due to the instructor at the
first class; the materials fee will only
