Friday 6:00-8:30 pm DGY MILD – Dynamic Gentle Yoga Stretch II
This Friday evening class is a refined sequence of Gentle Yoga standing and floor poses designed to be accessible and empowering to all students who can practice mat yoga. Physically this style consists of slow, smooth, and soothing movements, exploring a mindful entry to each posture. This active stretching approach empowers a practice that honors the capacity of each individual’s body. Methodical breath practice and cueing during movement cultivates the dynamic experience of stimulating prana and focusing attention inward, evoking a meditative steadying of the mind.
This sequence has been honed over many hundreds of classes, tweaked to accommodate the needs of students with a wide variety of abilities and limitations, providing a safe practice yet not sacrificing the depth of stress relief and peace of mind that many seek in their pursuit of yoga.
Saturday 9:30-12:30 pm DGY MEDIUM – Asana: Steady Alignment, Breath, and Core
On Saturday morning, you will be guided through a sequence of essential Gentle Yoga postures rooted in alignment, breath and core stability. You will experience a grounded practice anchored in empowering alignment cues and focused breath sequencing, all synchronized with core stabilization.
Incorporating the methodical, breath-based DGY style, entering poses is an awareness-expanding exploration of the spectrum of the asana. Through incremental progressions a vibrant sense of your body’s capacity will be revealed. Take a profound journey inward, riding on ever-building currents of vitality, ease, and rock-sold steadiness.
This is a well-balanced, thorough sequence of poses and modifications that are accessible to all students who can practice mat yoga.
