Mixed Level Just Yoga
"Just Yoga" is just that . . . not disco yoga, hot yoga, power yoga, yoga for redheads . . . just Yoga. Our classes are designed for beginners or continuing students. Variations of poses are offered and, as practice deepens, students choose their own level of comfort at which to work. Classes focus on breath awareness, relaxation, and self-acceptance. Just Yoga emphasizes safety through proper body alignment, recognizing that everyone's body is different.
All our teachers are professionally trained by accredited yoga schools. Most of our teachers have over 8 years of teaching experience. The emphasis in all our classes is safety. With that sense of safety, each student feels more empowered to be at one with their experience. We discourage competition with other students, the teacher or with one's self. We think of it as Just Yoga, as in just life. Going with the flow and being willing to be open to all sensations and responses without judgment or expectation. The challenge in Yoga is to remain present and make positive choices about what is right for us, not just what we are told to do. In the Just Yoga tradition of yoga we breathe, relax, feel, notice and we accept where we are and who we are in the present moment.
The wonderful thing about Yoga is that we can tailor each class to meet our own needs.
The YogaConnection's Just Yoga classes are gentle and nurturing. The Yoga Flow classes require turning up one's intensity without sacrificing safety. In any class, at the YogaConnection or anywhere else, it is important to take personal responsibility for the level that you wish to work at. A gentle class can be very intense emotionally; a workout class can reveal the deeper philosophy of yoga.
At the YogaConnection you have an opportunity to experience many different styles of teaching....a buffet of yoga!
A class for those of you who hate getting down on the floor, or are recovering from joint replacement or have other issues like Parkinsons or Cardio concerns. It’s a yoga class for every body and every age. All of us have our days when we pull a muscle or are getting over a cold and just need the respite that Chair Yoga can give. And, please remember, it is still yoga and you can just use the chair as a prop to help you down and up from your mat.
