Gentle Yoga with Karen Batchelder
This class is less strenuous than others, yet still supports students to build strength and flexibility through slow and mindful movement. Class begins with a brief centering practice and sharing of Yoga philosophy, creating a simple theme. Class also includes a variety of breathing, relaxation and meditation practices.These offerings help the Yoga student understand the holistic science of Yoga, and how to bring it into our daily lives and everyday actions.
Karen creates a safe and supportive environment for her students, with an emphasis on quieting the mind with the breath, and a 15 minute relaxation at the end of class. You are encouraged to practice at your own pace and listen to your body. New students always welcomed.
