Align and Flow

The first half hour of this class is dedicated to finding a connection to what aligns us with greater freedom and energy. We explore and re-center ourselves through breath work, foundational poses, and deep abdominal work. From there, we move into an hour of flow, including sun salutations and more advanced postures, connecting breath to fluid movement and pose exploration. This class is suitable and challenging for all levels.

Gentle Yoga

The Gentle Yoga class was established at the request of older students needing yoga adapted for the aging body. It is also appropriate for students recovering from injuries and illness. It begins with a gentle warm-up seated on chairs, then proceeds to standing postures, much like any basic yoga class, then ends with floor exercises, stretches and recuperative relaxation. Each student is individually assisted to adapt postures to her or his ability. Emphasis is on reducing pain, on healing, on feeling a sense of support with fellow students, and on pure enjoyment of movement.

Forrest Yoga
