Gentle yoga is now back at the Bushnell-Sage Library, starting Thursday,
November 2nd at 5:15. This weekly program has a suggested donation of $10 per session, but should not be a limiting factor to your attendance.
Yoga can help create more balance and a sense of well-being by giving
people tools for opening up the body and breath, relaxing the nervous
system, coping with challenges, and strengthening the physical and
emotional responses to stressful events.
This class includes gentle foundation poses/postures that are
demonstrated, with slow, detailed verbal cues, modifications for physical
limitations, and more advanced options for those who have experience.
Poses are held for several breath cycles. The class will also include
mindfulness practices, breathing techniques, and a brief non-religious
meditation at the end.
Students bring their own yoga mats and a small blanket—preferably cotton or
wool. Chair options are available for most poses.
