Strength & Stretching
Session I: Tuesday, 2/21-4/7, 10:30–11:30 a.m.
There is emphasis on basic yoga poses and balancing exercises. Started seated as we do breathing techniques to relax and ground. Stretch, warmup and prepare to stand up from a seated position without using your hands and stay standing for the remainder of class. We will be doing a few theraband strengthening exercises. Our standing yoga poses build strength, range of motion, alignment and stamina. Our balancing poses improve balance of course, but also promote flexibility and focus. Forward bends stretch back and hamstring muscles; back bends improve breathing. Twists aid in digestion and tone abs.
Prerequisite: Students should be ambulatory without assistive devices and be able to stand for an extended period of time. Please wear comfortable clothing and bring water & a theraband (Resistance band). Do not eat an hour before class.
