ADULT SUMMER CLASSES

MYSORE ASHTANGA VINYASA YOGA: Imagine learning yoga from a teacher who is guiding your Ashtanga practice fully based on your personal needs. This format is great for on-going Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga practitioners who can lengthen and advance their practice only through Mysore style. Monday class opens at 5pm and goes until 6:45pm. You can start your practice anytime between 5 and 6pm! Wednesday class opens at 6 am and you can start your practice anytime between 6 and 7:45 am. Talk about flexibility! Please note: Classical and adaptive versions of Mysore Ashtanga will be practiced because all bodies are truly welcome here. If one is concerned about how he or she has experienced Ashtanga in the past, not to worry. Lesley will help you do the practice in a way that is right for your body and she will also challenge you to move further when you can do it!

 ASHTANGA VINYASA YOGA & PRANAYAMA is a “workout” and “work-in” for active yoga beginners and beyond. The yoga is grounded in a lineage linked to the Mysore Palace in India with Krishnamacharyia and Sri K Pattabhi Jois. A yoga that is systematic, the potential with this rigour is stronger physical and mental health and a better way of relating to everyday life.

YIN YOGA is great for those who are athletic and non-athletic/ flexible and non-flexible! Simple postures are held for longer periods of time. This practice increases ease and improves mobility in the hips, pelvis, thighs and lower spine. A greater sense of calmness is often experienced with this practice. Along with your yoga mat, please bring a cushion, blanket and yoga block (if you have one) with you to class each week. This will enhance the experience.
