KYWC News: Sept-Oct 2021

After some summer R&R, our teachers are ready to begin our fall season of yoga classes.

Thank you to our friends from Northern Rivers Grove (and Steve!) for helping to spread the mulch on our grounds. It was a big job!

Thanks also to Val, Scott, Nancy, and Steve for taking care of our pollinator flower garden. We are happy to see the bees and butterflies enjoying it.

And thank you, David Wells, for offering your unique Yoga Cards for sale as a fundraiser for KYWC.

Flow and Restore

Mondays at 6:15-7:30 pm with Carla VanWormer

This class is designed to cultivate mindfulness, integrate breath and movement, and help you achieve balance for the body and mind. Flow and Restore is a calming yet stimulating yoga class with a mix of active flowing sequences and more passive restorative release. Poses are held for a longer period of time allowing students to find their edge and soften into restful relaxation. Pranayama and meditation are also weaved into the class. Props are used as tools to become more aware of the body and listen to its feedback. This class is for all levels.

Vinyasa Flow

Thursdays at 4:15-5:30 pm with Carla

Explore the foundational elements of Vinyasa with this approach designed to help you safely practice the basics while building heat. You will gradually grow into each posture and explore modified versions of poses which allow you to experience alignment in each pose at an intuitive level. This class, although more rigorous and heat-building than Monday’s class, is suitable for all levels.

Saturday Sunrise Flow

9:15-10:30 am on Sept 256th, Oct 2nd,16th, 23rd with Carla

Wake up and celebrate the start of a new day. This class leads you through a Vinyasa yoga sequence focused on opening the hips, quads, and hamstrings, while also providing poses to strengthen your core and improve your balance. This class is for all levels.

For Carla’s students: Preregister for the class dates of your choice on this form.
