Beginning Yoga with Kamie (Zoom Live Weekly)
This is a beginning level yoga class. Starting with an opening mediation to quiet the mind, you will connect with the body, spirit, and bring in a sense of peace. Then we will move through a gentle flow to release tension and increase range of motion. The class will continue with more challenging standing poses to strengthen your body, find balance, and increase focus, flexibility, and awareness. Restorative yoga props, such as blankets, blocks, bolsters, and straps, are often used to support the body, allowing muscles to lengthen and release. The pace of this class is slower than the flow and mixed level classes, focusing on stretching all areas of the body while releasing stress and tension from joints and muscles.
A regular yoga practice will help to dissolve barriers that may have you stuck in limiting patterns and open you to transform from the inside out. This class is designed for beginners and those looking for a gentle yoga practice.
Yoga Flow with Kamie (Zoom Live Weekly)
This class anchors on the practice of the vinyasa, or flow, which will make this class more challenging, though we will still include basic yoga poses. Poses are generally held for shorter periods of time so that transitions between poses become part of the flow. This allows for more poses to be practiced during a class. Classes integrate balance, flexibility, and strength along with the breath. A specific focus of this class will be to connect to one’s self. The content and degree of the challenge will be determined by the instructor based on class needs. Beginners are welcome, but knowledge of the sun salutations is recommended.
