New class offering in Saugerties
It is with great pleasure to announce my first regular class offering here in Ulster County. Join me Thursdays at 9:30 a.m. at Saugerties Hot Yoga for Restorative Steam Yoga.
This is a gentle yoga class with the room temperature kept about 95 degrees and the humidity about 90 percent. I feel as if I’m back in Florida! Asana are slow and controlled, focusing on respiratory and heart chakra opening movements. We begin in constructive rest with wave breathing, then move to hip openers and gentle back bends. Throughout you have opportunities to challenge your core strength. We finish with yoga nidra, i.e., guided meditation, to help you calm the inner dialog. It is perfect for those who desire a less intense heat and asana experience.
Owners John and Maura McFeely are extremely friendly and welcoming to all. Saugerties Hot Yoga has been in business about two years; its sister business is in Long Island, NY, run by their son, Tommy. John is, in fact, a martial artist and yogi like me, though his style is mixed martial arts (MMA). He has been teaching Bikram style for ten years.
