4-WEEK SUMMER CONDITIONING SERIES Saturdays June 2-23 11:00-12:30

With spring finally here, we’re ready to break out the summer clothes and get outside. The Northwest is known for all of it’s outdoor activities, hiking, biking, swimming, jogging and more. This 4-week series is geared towards toning and strengthening the muscles needed for these activities as well as stretching and lengthening them. We will also focus on the breath in our poses, which is so essential to these more strenuous outdoor exercises.

Yoga helps us to become more balanced in everything that we do. We learn to cultivate self-discipline or tapas through strengthening our bodies by using effort. We also learn how to become compassionate, karuna, with ourselves by stretching and lengthening those stiff and hard muscles.  And finally, through the breath, we learn to relax and find joy, mudita, in being in the moment.

Join Alison on Saturdays, June 2nd-23rd from 11:00-12:30 pm. This class is appropriate for beginners. If you know anyone who might be interested, please let them know.
