Class Descriptions

What will class be like?

Your class will be fun and uplifting and you will feel better when you leave.

You will be given detailed instruction and individual attention. You will work at your own pace with my guidance. You will never be pressured to do anything that you do not feel is right for you.

Your class will begin with a resting position to help you breathe better and give you a moment to prepare yourself for the class. You will learn a short series of warm ups that are repeated in each class to encourage you to practice. The body of your class will build on the lessons from the previous week. Your class will end with a guided relaxation.

Your class will not include incense, candles, or chanting. The room will be kept at a comfortable temperature.

The subject of yoga is immense and consists of much more than hatha yoga, which is the study of posture and breath. Your class will focus on hatha yoga. I don’t spend much time talking about yoga philosophy. The process of hatha yoga to will unfold and reveal the beauty and peace that can be found with the practice in you in your own unique way. If you begin to practice hatha yoga, you will feel better physically, mentally and emotionally. You will learn how to deal effectively with stress, which will lead you to a happier, healthier life.

Easing Into Yoga
Designed to allow students to begin the practice of yoga with confidence, Easing Into Yoga takes a slower approach to the beginning yoga postures. Emphasis is on full breathing, learning body alignment skills and relaxation techniques, using supportive props, and increasing mobility, flexibility and strength. This is an appropriate class for those recovering from an injury or illness, seniors, expectant mothers, couch potatoes, or anyone, who, for whatever reason, could benefit from a slower approach to the beginning yoga postures.

Basics / Level 1 /
Designed for beginning students new to yoga or new to alignment in poses, or those who prefer to practice at a basic level. The class is instruction-oriented with emphasis on proper alignment, and is appropriate for all ability levels, including those without yoga experience. Students are encouraged to work at a level that is right for them and modifications are made to meet individual needs.

Continuing / Level 1/2 / Intermediate 
For students who have taken yoga classes with Linda previously, or for those who have an established alignment oriented yoga practice and know the basic postures.

Prenatal
Prenatal students are well cared for, and welcome, in Easing Into Yoga and Basics/Level 1 classes. Check in with your health care provider to determine your participation.

The subject of yoga is immense and consists of much more than hatha yoga, which is the study of posture and breath. My classes focus on hatha yoga (which do not include incense, candles, or chanting) in a room kept at a comfortable temperature. I don’t spend much time talking about yoga philosophy. I trust the process of hatha yoga to unfold and reveal the beauty and peace that can be found with the practice in each student in his/her own way. I think if you begin to practice hatha yoga, you will feel better. You will feel better physically, mentally and emotionally.

In addition to Basic and Continuing level classes, I have developed and teach corporate and retreat programs, yoga for celebrations, and Easing Into Yoga , a program which is ideal for you if you are intimidated by regular yoga classes, recovering from illness or injury, or interested in a slower paced class.

To help you ease your way into yoga, I offer a first class free opportunity. I invite you to attend your first class and see if yoga is right for you.
