Class Descriptions


Mixed Level Asana

 

Mixed Level Asana sessions observe a warm-up, frequently incorporating a modified series of sun salutations, and then work into postures for strengthening and opening the back, stabilizing the shoulders, opening and stabilizing the hips. We make observations of breath, body and mind throughout. The sequencing is progressive and non-competitive. We address needs as they arise and explore a variety of postures, mudras, bandhas, and breath. Every session moves toward a thematic unity. We never script a session. We aim for zero injury. Sessions close with a random brief passage of a yogic text read aloud. We sit for an energizing breath practice. If you can walk for 75 minutes without stopping and you have no specific injuries or serious conditions, then you could be confident of starting.

Instructor: Jeffry Farrell with occasional guest instructors

  • Monday, Wednesday & Friday - 9:00am

Stretch, Strengthen and Relax

 

Stretch, Strengthen and Relax sessions build on a foundation of breath, body, and awakened attention, for the purpose of using the yoga as a tool for daily living in strength, balance, enhanced awareness and relaxation. These practices will challenge our cultural expectations about yoga and exercise. The sessions will be small, personal, and progressive based in practices of Krishnamacharya's lineage, in practices of the Bihar School of India, and in methods shared by Kumar Pallana. Advanced practitioners encouraged. Raw beginners welcomed. All beginners' minds renewed and supported.

Instructor: Mike Mirabal

  • Monday & Wednesday: 6:15pm


Dynamic Relaxation Yoga

 

Dynamic Relaxation Yoga is a slower, deeper approach to asana practice, with an emphasis on "presence". Participants will enjoy increased strength, flexibility, and relaxation.

Wednesday Instructor: Jeffry Farrell

Jeff's teaching style draws from many different schools of yoga and movement. He tailors each session to the participants present in each class.

Thursday Instructor: Cynthia Pierro

Cynthia blends Iyengar style yoga with Polarity Therapy yoga. Iyengar style focuses on correct bodily alignment and use of breath to support active and passive postures, allowing the body and mind to function at their best potential. Polarity Therapy yoga provides simple postures, sounds, and breathing techniques that quickly provide physical, emotional, and energetic balance.

Gentle Yoga

 

Gentle Yoga is just like it sounds. From a Hatha Yoga tradition, Mara adds experiential body awareness with the help of props to help bring the body into a state of relaxation and alignment. Good for total beginners, as well as those experienced. Good for anyone wanting a tune-up, a slower practice which can cultivate inner radiance and well-being.

Personal Yoga Sessions

 

Personal Yoga Sessions allow you to identify specific areas that need attention. This means you can achieve objectives in much less time, or effectively manage a chronic condition. We set objectives together, and then devise a set of practices that can change and grow. To discuss setting up a time for a personal session, please email donna@parkcitiesyoga.com.
