Mary Norton instructs the following:
- Yin and Flow
- Mindful Yoga and Meditation
This class is a fusion of Yin and Yang Yoga. Yin yoga addresses the tightness and toxin buildup in the joints and connective tissue. Poses are held in stillness for several minutes at a time, using props to make the practice accessible to all students. Students will transition into a flow that will introduce alignment of posture, attention to breathing and fluidity. Students will learn basic yoga postures and breathing techniques as they learn to move from one pose to another while aiming for a deep body awareness. Through flowing practice, heat is naturally and safely created within the body to warm, soothe, heal and strengthen the student from the inside out.
This class is appropriate for all levels. Students will explore the subtleties of alignment, breath and sensory awareness in preparation for a period of seated meditation. Yoga class will be 90 minutes followed by an optional 1/2 hour of meditation - both walking and seated. The meditation is only for students who attend the Mindful Yoga class.
