Gentle classes are perfect for those who desire a slower paced class, or those newer to yoga. A safe environment is created for students to explore their bodies, with poses that focus equally on strength, balance, and flexibility. Classes include a balanced combination of basic sun salutations, standing postures, seated forward folds, gentle backbends, twists, and basic inversions. Students are encouraged to use props and alternate movements to modify poses when appropriate. Gentle classes are also great for those who are recovering from injury, or seek treatment for a condition such as arthritis, osteoporosis, or sciatica. Perfect for beginners!
