If you can breathe, you can do yoga

I am a yoga teacher for people who want to do yoga, but think they can’t. I teach yoga with gentle movements that use the breath as your guide, stretching in the same way that you do naturally when waking up in the morning. My classes can be done in regular clothing, wearing glasses, sitting or standing. It’s especially suited to people who have never exercised before, seniors, and those with mobility or weight issues.

The key is moving with the breath. Try it: raise your arms… and lower them.

Now do it again, but this time match your breath to your movements. Raise your arms with a slow, deep inhalation….. and lower them with a long, slow exhalation.

Notice the difference? It’s simple, but powerful. So if you’ve always wanted to do yoga but think you can’t, we can.

My gentle, seated yoga classes are especially helpful for craftspeople and those who experience neck stress and poor posture from prolonged periods of sitting.

Here’s a mini sample class, a 4 minute break to counterpose the effects of sitting too long:

The success of yoga does not lie in the ability to perform postures but in how it positively changes the way we live our life and our relationships.
