FLOW AND RESTORE ~ WITH INGRID JAEGER

This class links yoga poses (asanas) into a sequence of movements that “flow” with the breath.  The postures lead naturally from one to the other while building heat in the body.   Poses are held for multiple breaths to allow students to feel correct alignment and gain awareness of the body.   The first part of the class will contain a flowing sequence of poses, standing and balancing postures, and core work.  The latter part of class will include deep yin-style poses to promote flexibility in the joints and connective tissues.  Class will end with relaxation and meditation.  With continued practice, beginners will gain experience and confidence, and more experienced students will be challenged mentally by moving deeper into the pose.  Appropriate modifications and assists are provided to help students of all levels learn and progress.
