I found yoga about 10 years ago and liked the benefits of increased flexibility, balance and stress reduction. Mostly, I liked how calm, centered and grounded I felt after a yoga class. I also like being in a class with other practitioners and feeling the energy in the room. As a clinical social worker, I wanted to be able to share what I had learned in yoga with clients, so I completed the 200 hour teacher training at Lincoln Yoga Center in 2015. I am currently enrolled in a 500 hour program since there is so much to learn. I was able to attend a training on yoga for mood management in 2016 with Amy Weintraub of LifeForce Yoga. Amy authored Yoga for Depression and Yoga Skills for Therapists if you want to learn more. I enjoy all the aspects of yoga, including the postures, breathing practices, meditation, chanting, and mantras. I enjoy encouraging students to notice the sensations in their bodies, to stay present and to notice which postures are more calming or energizing for them. I love how yoga is being used to help all types of mental health and physical health issues. My favorite types of yoga are gentle, yin and restorative.
This class is designed to lay the foundation for a solid yoga practice. Learn basic yoga postures that emphasize range of motion, flexibility, and safe alignment for your body. This is a casual environment to learn and ask questions about the practice and is open to all levels from beginners to those looking to refine and deepen their practice.
