Tuesdays

Gentle Therapeutic Yoga Class

With Christy Smith Rous

6 week session 6:00 – 7:15 pm
July 18 – Aug 22

 It was almost four years ago I tried my first yoga class. I came to the mat with some physical limitations like a disc problem which felt like a knife in my back every time I attempted even the smallest back bend. In addition I also had a hip issue due to scoliosis and an issue with balance that can often come with aging.
    My first class was with an instructor who had some background in viniyoga. With that experience, I felt like I had come home. What started as one class a week soon became six or more a week for the next three years. My life has changed! I no longer have the disk issue or the balance issue and the hip is so much better on most days.
    As the next progression in my yoga journey I am enrolled in a teacher training in this tradition. Since part of my practice now is teaching I am offering a 4 week session in which each class will build upon the previous. Please come join me for an introduction to this gentle therapeutic tradition. I feel a yoga teacher’s job is to teach their students how to have a safe and effective home practice.
The class will be Tuesday evening at 6:00 during the month of March.   3-7, 3-14, 3-21, 3-28
The cost of the series is $40.00
