For many years my teacher Robyn Smith taught this evening class in the Anusara style. In September 2017 she asked me to teach this time slot on a trial basis. As of October 2019 we still have a dynamic regular crew including yogis of all ages with visitors stopping by often.
Ideal for those new to yoga, this class introduces basic alignment and breath, while keeping a moderate pace. Classes focus on alignment, strengthening, breath, ease, safety and stability in basic yoga poses. The end of class includes a ~10 minute guided relaxation
To find the space: Enter through the Todd Room Door. This is the second door furthest uphill on the West side of the church (G street). Upon entering immediately on the left is another door leading to a flight of stairs. Go up the stairs and the gym will be on your left.
This is a classic live recording of a Hatha Yoga that I am publishing to support my students at home due to the covid-19 response. This recording is from the very beginning of our classes at the Arcata Presbyterian Church and it was a night I was subbing a level 1 Anusara class for my teacher Robyn Smith.
She was beginning a chakra series and this class was for the 2nd chakra and is themed around connection. I cut the recording to start after I had just done a short talk and it begins with the centering. Practice includes savasana.
If you have a history of practicing with me you should be able to follow the verbal cues without issue.
