Yoga for the Season
A practice to support physical, mental, and spiritual well-being in balance with nature. We’ll begin with connection and grounding, then beginner-friendly movement with options to customize. We’ll follow with breathwork, and close with meditation. Blocks are helpful, but not required. Click the date above to access the class on InsightTimer. No preregistration is required.

Get ready for Yoga
Find a place with enough space to move and stretch.
A Yoga mat offers cushion for your feet and knees, and creates a sticky surface to help keep you more stable in standing poses. A towel/blanket over carpet also works. If you’ll be practicing on a hard floor without a mat, skip the towel or blanket for standing poses. It will be too slippery.
Yoga blocks help bring the floor a little closer to you if, say, your fingers don’t touch the floor when you bend over. They can also be used to prop parts of the body for support or comfort. I’ll offer modifications with and without blocks, so no worries if you don’t have these.
2 folded blankets or towels can be used for cushion and support, or to cover up for savasana.
Drink plenty of water.
You do NOT need to be thin, flexible, or have good balance. We practice Yoga asana to care for and connect with our body so that it is better prepared to support a calm mind and nourished soul. It is not about achieving particular shapes.
