I am developing a new career-path, so I am not teaching any regular classes, at present. I remain on the sub-list for my first yoga-site, Stanwood Swim & Fitness.
And … check back for a yoga-class rundown. I have classes I really like, and I occasionally travel and track down yoga when I do: I’ll list or blog about them here.
WHEN I DO TEACH …
Slow Flow Yoga: A moving meditation that threads together yoga poses, with one pose easing into the next, making an hour-long practice feel like one continuous movement. Spend a few breaths in a pose, and move with a physiological bag-of-tricks that will calm the mind, while increasing strength, flexibility, and balance.
Flow Yoga: An athletic practice that starts with phased-in movements to a pose, to optimize alignment; then transitions to powerful sequencing, intended to wring out stress.
Yin Yoga: A practice that uses long pose-holds to open muscles, myofascial tissues, and energy channels. Modifications offered and encouraged.
Restorative Yoga: Heavily propped, meditative poses meant to allow an opening in the body, with no effort — just release.
Chair Yoga: Two styles offered. Injured but ambulatory: an upright and gentle class that uses the chair as a prop, and focuses on functional everyday movements. Seated functional movement: A very cautious seated version that uses micromovements to improve the experiences students have, in activities of daily living — usually offered in 30-minute sessions.
Pilates: A mat-based, flowing core-work practice, with a dash of yoga.
TRX: A flow practice, with suspension-straps that hang from a ceiling. TRX bands can help you find complacent muscles and strengthen them.
Step aerobics: Mindful cardio-friendly movement using an aerobics bench. Drop pounds, while strengthening your heart and mind.
