Sustainable Practice

8:30 am

Start your weekend by coming home to yourself in body. breath, and presence. This class starts with deep observation through movement of basic principles of breathing, awareness, and asana or posture and body shaping, as well as flow in movement changes. This exploration is progressed into movement in different planes of the body: seated, on the floor, hands and knees, and standing. Strength and Suppleness are developed with balance for a lifetime of sustainable yoga practice in our changing physical realities.

This class is being co-taught with Stephen Hartnett. See the Lotus schedule for teacher schedules. Stephen is a long-time friend and teacher in the Lotus Teacher’s Collective.

Gentle Yoga With Extended Breath Practice and Meditation

Sundays – Monthly
Oct. 22, Nov. 19, Dec. 17th
5:00 pm

In this class we will explore how changing the shapes we place our body into as yoga postures both pulls our breath in deeper into new areas with our inhale, as well as allowing us to release tensions and increase circulation with our exhales. Postures and movements will support de-stressing our stress, while bringing our minds into meditative awareness of our self and our environment with our senses. Meditative practices will start and end the practice to balance our minds and presence as we settle ourselves in this Sunday evening practice. All levels of experience and all bodies are indeed welcome!

“That was magic!”

“Thank You. I have had too much going on in my life. This has been a real re-set It was getting hard for me to sleep at night and I am doing some of these on other nights. It really helps.”

“I have always been too stressed to sit still, now I just keep dropping in.”

“I like that we are finding new ways to breath and feel the shapes on the poses.”
