Delight and refresh your body and mind and heart with yoga. Stretch, balance, clarify, heal, strengthen, relax!
Each class begins with a 'centering' - a moment for peace and relaxation, a chance to sit with yourself and take a breath. This is followed by a breathing exercise, a warm-up period of stretching and twists, then on to the asanas (yoga poses) themselves. We follow those with cooling-down poses and a long, delicious, lying-down relaxation, inch by tranquil inch.
The class is different each week - sometimes it's a theme, like yoga for seasonal allergies or insomnia or stress-busting yoga, other times we focus on a particular body area, like releasing and opening the hips, shoulders, hamstrings or lower back.
The first few classes of each semester include lots of stretching. Seasoned practitioners also appreciate this gentle approach to their body as it allows them to go deeper into their practice.
As the semester progresses, classes become more strength-oriented, the poses more challenging. Great care is taken to prepare your limbs and muscles for the asanas (poses) in each class.
Classes are small (8 - 11 students) with plenty of personal attention. The Monday 6:00 pm class is for experienced yoga students; the 7:45 class is for beginners or anyone wishing for a slower pace; Wednesday 6:30 pm is for advanced beginners. Classes are held at Cambridge Health Associates, 335 Broadway, Cambridge, MA 02139. There's a free parking lot in back.
The semesters begin in January, April, July and September, however, you can join a class any time on a drop-in basis. There are no Wednesday classes in July and August.
Drop-in classes cost $16; or $13.50 per class if you sign up for a block of classes within a semester.
All props (mats, cushions, belts, blankets, etc.) are provided. Wear comfortable clothing.
I have been a practitioner of yoga since 1986 and a teacher since 1997. I teach in the Kripalu style of yoga, with influences of Iyengar. I am also interested in new approaches to yoga and we often experiment with these in class.
