Beverly's classes help build strength and endurance, increase flexibility, and improve posture and balance. They are designed for mid-life and older adults who may benefit from a slower pace and a recognition of age-related functional changes. Students are encouraged to use props, modify poses, transition carefully, and find their appropriate balance between ease and effort.  Breath work, relaxation and meditation practices are included to encourage stress reduction. We do seated chair poses, standing poses, and floor work (alternatives are available for those who cannot get up and down from the floor unassisted). Beginners welcome.

SHANNON

Ashtanga Mysore Practice

Named for the city in India (Mysore) where the Ashtanga practice began, this traditional method is best described as a private lesson with the dynamics and community of a group setting. The teacher guides each student individually as they learn and practice the sequence at their own pace. Ideal for beginners and experienced students alike, all levels practice together, at the pace appropriate for each individual.

As the practice is learned gradually and committed to memory, you hone tools to cultivate a lifetime yoga practice that nourishes the body, mind, and spirit. Experienced and beginning students practice together, the teacher providing instruction, adjustment, and guidance as appropriate. Shannon provides lots of hands on adjustments and individual attention to enable every practitioner to cultivate their own practice at a safe pace.

 

Drop-in Options:  Tuesday Mysore is available for drop-in by students who have previously completed a 6 week study or who have contacted Shannon prior to class. Mysore drop-in is $18 per class. Shannon is also available for private sessions. Details
