(NOTE: I sub a variety of classes throughout the month at several studios in the area including The Yoga Room in Tahoe City and Namaste in Truckee. Please visit their websites for detailed class schedules.)
The following classes are weekly and all are held at Namaste in Truckee. Descriptions of each class are below. Sign up Here! Or just Drop-in!
Monday, 8-830am. Meditation.
Monday, 930-1030am. Yin, Yang & Yoga Nidra.
Thursdays, 545-7pm. Yoga Fundamentals.
Most Saturdays, 930-1045am. Vinyasa Level 1-2.
YOGA FUNDAMENTALS: Beginner Friendly Yoga class. Basic knowledge of fundamental poses and breath is needed for this class. We will refine our skills in basic poses, alignment, breathwork, philosophy and meditation. This is a fun class that encourages student participation in asking questions and exploring what works best for you!
YIN, YANG & YOGA NIDRA: This is an amazing way to start your week with a short warm-up, a little grounding practice, all topped off by a short, but sweet Yoga Nidra Meditation to set your intention for the day, week, or month to come! Yoga Nidra is wonderfully healing and empowering practice. If you’d like to learn more, please contact me. I also offer private, custom Yoga Nidra sessions by appointment only.
MEDITATION: Weekly 30 minute classes will consist of approximately 25 minutes of seated meditation exploring different aspects of mindfulness as taught in the light of the vipassana tradition. No experience necessary.
VINYASA LEVEL 1-2: “Vinyasa” is derived from the Sanskrit term nyasa, which means “to place,” and the prefix vi, “in a special way”—as in the arrangement of notes in a raga, the steps along a path to the top of a mountain, or the linking of one asana to the next. These classes will consist of an alignment based flow practice, with special attention placed on presence, mindful movement and connecting breath throughout the practice. Sun salutations may be practiced but will not be the bulk of the class. Expect some mellow music, healthy heat building movement, fun exploration and ample cool-down with time for a juicy savasana.
