Gentle Yoga for Resilience
August 6, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 12:00 pm on Thursday, repeating until August 27, 2020
This class will be an opportunity to explore working with the breath (Prānāyāma), in a safe, non-threatening way, to increase resilience to stress. Yoga postures will include sitting on a folding or armless chair, standing, and lying down. It is recommended that you have two blocks, a blanket, a firm pillow/cushion/bolster, and a yoga strap/belt/scarf. Led by Renée Baker.

Renée Baker: (E-RYT 200, RYT 500, M.Ed.) After a career of over a decade as a Montessori teacher, Renée completed her 200 and 300-hour vinyasa flow-based yoga training at Asheville Yoga Center in North Carolina. She is a lifelong learner and continues the study of yoga and philosophy with her teacher, Micheal Johnson. Her gentle yoga classes are strongly influenced by her training with Gary Kraftsow, founder of the American Viniyoga Institute.
Renée’s classes are thoughtfully planned and guided, sprinkled with yogic philosophy, life wisdom, poetry, prānāyāma, and meditation. She seeks to guide students towards a connection with their innate wisdom of the heart and body. Working with people of all ages, from children in school settings to seniors, her preferred teaching styles are Alignment-based Classes, Vinyasa Flow, Gentle Yoga, Slow Flow & Yin, Yoga for Youth, and Laughter Yoga.
