Yoga Strong is a class designed for stretching and strengthening to help with overall health, fitness, and to counteract daily activities. Led by 500RYT and Yoga Therapist Jessica Mayberry, this hour-long class will spend time stretching the whole body, but will also focus on strengthening one area of the body (for example neck and shoulders or low back). There will also be time spent with breathwork (Pranayama), relaxation and stress-relieving techniques, and meditation. Start 2019 off right; your future self will thank you! Class is $10, though classes passes are available. Monthly unlimited passes and class punch passes can be used for this class. Students will need to get up and down from the floor several times during the class, though chairs are available and encouraged for assisting in this movement.

Yoga MOVES is a movement-based class focusing on stamina; strength; and, of course, mobility. This is a 75-90 minute class focused on range of motion (especially in the hips, shoulders, and spine) by moving not just in a linear fashion but through the sagittal, frontal, and transverse planes of motion. We will circle our hips, shoulders, and joints in order to mobilize them in a safe way. We will also strengthen the muscles to reduce pressure on the joints and better align our posture.
This class will be intense, but resting and props are encouraged. There will also be self massage using techniques to access the nadis (or meridians in Chinese medicine like acupressure) for an even better healing experience. The class will conclude with a relaxing pose (Savasana) followed by a short seated meditation.
Come unwind and release tension, free the joints, and strengthen the muscles in order to relax and better enjoy daily life.
This class is guided by Jessica Mayberry, Yoga Therapist and 500 hour yoga instructor. Students will be required to get up and down from the floor multiple times, though chairs are available to help with the transition, if desired.
Class will meet every Tuesday evening at 6:10. If you do not have a mat, no problem; the studio has plenty. Class is $10 and is included in all class passes.
