Winter Update ~ Yoga Practice with Amy Secrist

Greetings, Yoga Friends,

Here’s an update on inclement weather cancellations, class schedule information, and gratitude:

Thank you to all who practiced and donated during our session-opening Yoga for Life Benefit classes.  Resurrection Parish and Richland Pregnancy Services are grateful for your support, and so am I!

Today begins the first 6-week session of our 2018 Winter Yoga Practice.

Power Yoga Practice will meet this evening, Monday, January 15th, at 7:00pm, weather permitting.  (See below for ways you can find out if classes are cancelled.)

Gentle Yoga will begin Thursday, January 18th, at 9:30am.

Saturday early morning Power Yoga Practice will meet beginning January 20th at 7:00am.

Visit the current yoga class schedule for full details.

Inclement weather may present the need for class cancellations.  Up to this point, I’ve been posting class cancellations on my website through which you would receive an email announcement.  Moving forward, however, I will create a new “Class Cancellations” page that you may access by visiting the website directly and selecting it from the menu.  This way, extra emails will not be cluttering up your inbox.   I’ve also set up a text notification system for those of you who would appreciate a direct message.  You are still welcome to email me using the contact form or using contact@thecatholicyogi.com to inquire about class.  But, if you’d like to receive text notifications, consider signing up for remind101.  Here’s how you do it:

Enter this number:  81010

Text this message:  @yogapr

After signing up, you’ll be notified of class cancellations via text message through the remind101 app which keeps all phone numbers private.

Thank you for your continued interest in Yoga, and feel free to share this update with anyone who might benefit.

Happy Practicing!

Ashtanga-Based Power Yoga (Beginners Welcome)

Mondays, 7:30-8:30pm, No Limits Studio (A)
June 20, 27; July 18, 25; Aug. 8, 15
$55 for the Summer or $10 drop-in.

Ashtanga-Based Power Yoga is grounded in the traditional Ashtanga tradition.  This is a focused, 60-minute, short-form class designed to build strength and flexibility through vigorous movement and use of the ujjayi (victorious) breath. We will spend time working on individual poses, as well as cultivating the “flow,” linking movement to movement through the breath, which is one of the joys of vinyasa (moving and breathing at the same time on purpose). We will learn modifications that support us where we are weak and ones that challenge us where we are strong. This class is open to beginners, however, it is not recommended for those recovering from illness or injury. Please be prepared to work hard, as many of the sequences are physically demanding.
