Vicki Durst instructs the following:
Yoga for Beginners
This basic level class is perfect for those who are new to yoga, have physical limitations, or would like to learn the basics of alignment, breathing and yoga philosophy. In each class a life-affirming theme is woven into the instructions to assist the student to feel better in his/her body, mind and spirit.
Affirmation Hatha Yoga
A life-affirming philosophy of intrinsic goodness is interwoven into every class. The classes are infused with a heart-based theme and alignment principles in a fun, upbeat experience that focuses on the community of the heart.
This deeply relaxing and restful class will use therapeutic yoga poses done primarily on the floor with the support of props. Designed to nurture, nourish and rejuvenate the whole person, this class will be accompanied by music, inspirational readings and therapeutic touch.
Prenatal Yoga (Reservation Required)
When a woman becomes pregnant, literally every system in her body changes. If that isn't enough, there are emotional changes as she prepares for her new role as a mother, full of expectations.
Benefit of Prenatal Yoga include:
• Build strength & Confidence
• Increases energy
• Aids in focus and clarity
• Reduces stress & promotes relaxation
• Reduces (and may eliminate) pregnancy discomforts
• Promotes circulation, posture, digestion
• Offers specific self-care routines for pregnancy and beyond
Postnatal Yoga (Reservation Required)
Postnatal yoga classes help women regain strength and energy that may be low due to all of the daily demands. This class specifically focuses on rebuilding strength in the abdomen, back and pelvic muscles; releasing tension in the shoulders and neck and opening the chest. Classes also address common issues and concerns that may arise in this new chapter of life. Mamas are encouraged to bring their little ones (pre-crawlers, please) and we will incorporate mom and baby interaction in the class. This class is for mamas 6 weeks postpartum who have had the OK from their health care providers to engage in physical activity.
