Beginner Level Yoga with Wendy McLoon-Waterman

$35

Yoga has been shown to have vast health benefits for people of all body types and fitness levels. If you can stretch your muscles, you can do yoga! This six-week series will introduce basic yoga postures (along with modifications) and healthy alignment with some breath work and relaxation/meditation sprinkled in. We will play with linking postures together into a gentle ‘flow’ sequence that will stretch your muscles and relax your mind. As this will be in a virtual format via Zoom, verbal instructions will be replacing any hands-on adjustments. Participants should have a yoga mat or towel and wear clothes that allow for unrestricted movement. Some props that are helpful to have are two yoga blocks, a yoga strap (or scarf, belt or other long piece of fabric), and a folded blanket. A folding chair would be helpful for modifications or balance poses, and wall space nearby can be useful as well. Participants should have the ability to get up and down from the floor fairly easily, and be cleared by a medical professional if there are chronic health issues such as high blood pressure. Wendy McLoon-Waterman is a certified yoga instructor (RYT500) and a member of Yoga Alliance. She is also a certified Yoga Therapist working with individuals with physical and/or psycho-emotional challenges, and is a member of the International Association of Yoga Therapists.
