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.

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. The Sunday class is taught in English and the Friday class is taught in Spanish. She focuses on breathing while holding asanas, and emphasizes toning and building strength in the muscles of the torso.
