The first meeting of Power Yoga, Beginners and Beyond will meet this Saturday. Each class is individualized and self-sustaining; however, subsequent classes will build on knowledge and experiences gained in the preceding classes. It is a great experience to attend an entire session as one creates a foundation of experiential knowledge from which to question, experiment, and enjoy a personal yoga practice.
In addition, I am scheduled to teach two more free classes for the Yoga for Veterans group at the AmVets on 4th St. in Mansfield: Nov. 5 and 19th. Please spread the word about this wonderful gift to our military community and families. Everyone with a connection to a military service member is encouraged to attend!

Yoga for Veterans

Veterans Yoga in Richland County was started by Dale Warren as a way to support veterans and their families. Area teachers take turns leading free weekly classes. My class will focus on mindful breathing and moving, the relationship between the body and mind, and the ways in which a regular yoga practice can help relieve stress and rediscover a sense of balance and ease in daily life, as well as in particularly stressful circumstances. To find out more, please email questions to Dale at firstname.lastname@example.org and keep in touch with veterans yoga via facebook.

This 75 minute morning yoga class will explore postures and breathing techniques that cultivate ease and openness, strength and flexibility, awareness and contentment. Utilizing the principles of Ashtanga Yoga while following our body’s internal rhythms and wisdom, we will find support where we are weak and inspiration where we are strong. Beginners & Beyond focuses on the fundamentals of power yoga, as well as explores modifications and variations on the traditional practice. Come with an open mind and a big heart. All levels welcome!
