Gentle yoga is a class that has an emphasis on building mindful awareness through the breath. Asanas (poses) are practiced at a slower pace with a focus on form, modifications, breathwork and building strength gradually. If you are recovering from injury, pregnant or seeking balance with a softer and relaxing practice, these types of classes are appropriate for you.
Why you should try gentle yoga:
- You are new to yoga and scared you can’t do all the poses. This class is an excellent place to start (and continue) a yoga practice. You will learn the basic poses and modifications without the intimidation that might come with more challenging poses.
- You feel burnt out and want to move a little bit, but not a lot. Life is beating you down, and you need time away to recharge and replenish. A little bit of movement can help the body relax and renew.
- You had a training or athletic event and want to stretch. Your body feels tight and sore, and you need some movement to feel more limber, relaxed and continue your regular workout routine.
