Each session will open with a grounding breath practice to set an intention for the session.
Then we will step through a series of gentle asanas (flexibility exercises or repetitive movements) with a focus on being mindful in the practice. Each asana in this therapeutic type of yoga is adaptable to what ever your level of practice is for that day. Everyone will be doing self adjustments (adapting movements taking rests) in each asana with advice from the teacher. Each asana will aid in expanding the body's flexibility as well as assist in balancing the nervous organ and glandular systems. These exercises are typically done while sitting in a chair but they are fully suited to a yoga mat. If you prefer to use a yoga mat blanket rug please have it available or you are welcome to use the carpeted floor.
Between asana there will be opportunities to relax and repeatedly to tune into the body growing and expanding our awareness of the present moment. In addition near the end of the session we have a period of relaxation which often includes a teacher directed guided visualization. The purpose of all yoga is to prepare the mind and body for meditation and so in keeping with tradition we unite the body mind and spirit in a short meditation.
