Beginners Yoga Series Forming in January
This program is for those completely new to yoga. If you want to begin a home yoga practice, this program gives you the skills and knowledge you need to feel comfortable practicing safely on your own. Or, if you’ve wanted to attend a studio class, but feel too intimidated, after these six hours you’ll know what to expect. You’ll learn how to perform postures and their modifications, so you can perform them safely, breathing, meditation, along with locks and gestures. Confidence, energy, strength, and flexibility ensues. Any questions you have are answered. Great for seniors.

Yang Yin Yoga
This mixed-level* class tackles the twin scourges of aging: muscle wasting and stiffness. It incorporates vigorous and stimulating strength-building postures for the first part, then transitions to calming, flexibility-promoting postures for the second. The session finishes with guided meditation for total physical and mental relaxation. As you refine your physical and mental skills through the yoga process, your body will feel balanced, i.e., stimulated yet relaxed, while your mind will be focused and peaceful.
Mondays & Fridays 10:15 to 11:45 a.m.
Mountain View Studio, 20 Mountain View Ave., Woodstock, NY 12498
* While variations are given, this class is NOT for absolute beginners. Students must know basic yoga postures.
