CLASS DESCRIPTIONS

DIANE

Diane-headshot-circle

Diane  

The beginning/intermediate Hatha class on Monday evenings is an eclectic collection of Traditional Solar Hatha Yoga, and other styles gathered from a hatha yoga teaching practice of more than 40 years.Those muscles & ligaments need some focused attention.  Both mental & physical flexibility will be developed in a warm & compassionate setting.  All levels of physical fitness are welcome, whether you are an athlete who has neglected stretching or have a body that is getting older & needs a little TLC!
Diane is also certified by the Arthritis Association.

GRACE

Hatha Yoga

Grace began practicing yoga in 2015 as a way to relieve lower back pain and improve flexibility. Her practice was inconsistent for several years until she became a member of the Center, and it was through developing a consistent practice here that she decided to complete a 200 hour teacher-training program through YogaBuzz. Grace brings compassion, warmth, and a welcoming energy to her classes, where she aims to create a place for everybody and every body to comfortably explore a variety of poses.

JULIE

Julie

Gentle Fitness Hatha Yoga

Julie’s early Monday morning yoga class is a beginning Hatha yoga class. Most classes include some Pilates, along with restorative poses and a brief meditation. She uses humor and acceptance coupled with gentle expectations in working with varying ages and ability levels. Julie emphasizes personal strengths to guide students toward stillness, awareness and finding the strength within. 

MIMI

Mimi

Mimi

Yin-focused Hatha Yoga and Informal Meditation

In her Saturday morning class, Mimi teaches a gentle Hatha Yoga class with a focus on Yin Yoga. The poses are held for longer periods of time (3-5 minutes), and connective tissues – joint ligaments and tendons – relax and stretch. This slower pace of Yin complements the more active yoga practices taught at the Solar studio. An informal meditation practice immediately follows this class for those who wish to participate.

SUZANNE

YogAlign

YogAlign is a whole new yoga method based on keeping the spine in natural alignment by viewing the body globally instead of as separate parts. YogAlign utilizes self massage and special breathing exercises toning the core from the inside out, and there is no pain in the process. All YogAlign positions simulate how our body moves in real life functions. YogAlign aligns the body into natural effortless posture from the very first session and gives people the tools to correct and change poor posture and breathing habits that lead to chronic pain, illness, and premature aging.
Suzanne is a certified YogAlign teacher.

MONICA

Monica

Monica

Iyengar Hatha Yoga and Spanish Language Iyengar Hatha Yoga

Iyengar strongly influences Monica’s teaching style during her Sunday morning and Friday afternoon intermediate classes.  She focuses on breathing while holding asanas, and emphasizes toning and building strength in the muscles of the torso.
Monica is certified by Yoga Alliance. 

 Jerome

Yoga Traditions

Dr. Bauer leads a class on the similarities of all
yoga traditions, i.e. vegetarianism, meditation, etc.
Thursday evening, 5:30-7:00
